Top Supreme Court candidates’ views on abortion under scrutiny

Collins was among five swing-vote senators who met with the president last week to discuss the Supreme Court nomination.

"It has been established as a constitutional right for 46 or 45 years and was reaffirmed 26 years ago", she said of Roe v. Wade.

Sanders said Monday that White House Counsel Don McGahn will lead the overall process. He has said he will announce his pick July 9.

President HE Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo has in consultation with the council of state appointed four new justices to the Supreme Court.

"There are not a lot of nominees on that list that many Democrats will support", said Tobias, noting that any candidate backed by the Federalist Society is likely comfortable overturning Roe v. Wade.

"I had a very, very interesting morning", Trump said as he greeted visiting Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in the Oval Office. Raj Shah, the principal deputy press secretary, will take leave from his post to handle "communications, strategy and messaging coordination with Capitol Hill allies" full time, according to White House press secretary Sarah Sanders.

Walmart has been targeted before by angry shoppers after controversial items have appeared on the platform. There are a few companies selling Impeach 45 apparel, including the company Old Glory .

In the wake of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement - and in light of Trump's vow to replace him with someone who would overturn Roe v. Wade - all eyes are on Susan Collins, a Republican senator with pro-choice leanings who could help reject an anti-abortion nominee. Trump also spoke about the increasing number of Democrats who have called for abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), something Trump said he considers also considers beneficial for Republicans headed into the midterms. "Roe v. Wade is probably the one that people are talking about in terms of having an effect". Bob Casey Jr. (D) said Trump is wrongly limiting himself to a list of 25 names released by the White House. That judicial approach typically involves a more literal interpretation of the Constitution, and not reading into the Constitution language that doesn't explicitly appear.

Joan Larsen, a former Michigan Supreme Court justice who was named to the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals a year ago, and fellow 6th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Raymond Kethledge, are reportedly among the handful of top candidates being considered by Trump.

Every senator's vote will count in confirming the eventual nominee because with Sen.

A member of the Indian-American minority, not part of the traditional ruling elite, and a strong conservative who has an originalist view of the U.S Constitution, Mr. Thapar fits in Mr. Trump's plans smoothly. John McCain, R-Ariz., is out as he battles brain cancer.

On Sunday, Leonard Leo, an outside adviser to Trump on judicial nominations, said he expected Trump to select a nominee who is mindful of precedent but who is also more "originalist and textualist".

In the case of a 50-50 vote on the nominee, Vice President Mike Pence could cast the tie-breaking vote.
