Trump to announce Supreme Court nominee on July 9

Anti-abortion advocates rally outside of the Supreme Court during the March for Life

"I've got it narrowed to about five", he said, including two women.

I don't know who this gentlemen is-he doesn't appear to be a member of the media-but his tweet was so downtrodden and hopeless, it earned a spot.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has committed to confirming a nominee in the fall, which the Republican-controlled Senate should be able to do if McConnell can hold his razor-thin majority together. At the invitation of Trump, their executive vice president of the organization, Leonard Leo, helped handpick the 25 Supreme Court candidates that Trump will be choosing from. Thus far, the focus from both sides has been on whether Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion, could be reversed. Cory Booker (D., N.J.) likened the efforts to stop a conservative justice to abolition, suffrage and civil rights, saying the USA was a history of achieving the "impossible." Sen.

The poll was conducted before Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement, the Kaiser Foundation said.

Trump's nominee must win confirmation by the Senate. Neither senator is known for telegraphing how they will cast their votes until right before the vote is called, so the spotlight will likely be on them in the months ahead.

There are ten Democratic senators up for re-election in 2018 in states that Trump won in 2016. Joe Manchin III (W.Va.), Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.) and Joe Donnelly (Ind.) met with the president at the White House on Thursday night and are under pressure from liberal activists and their colleagues.

"I do not apply ideological litmus tests to nominees, but I want to see integrity, intellect, a respect for precedent and adherence to the rule of law", moderate Republican Senator Susan Collins told Reuters when asked about Roe v. Wade.

One person on that list of names is Utah Sen.

"I like them all", he said. "I stressed the importance of nominating someone to the Supreme Court who is pragmatic, fair, compassionate, committed to justice, and above politics".

If Trump is able to appoint a crucial fifth anti-woman justice to the Supreme Court, the fate of safe abortions for millions of women across the country will be jeopardized.

Trump has made his intentions and vision for the United States very clear from the beginning. "We're hoping there will be some Democratic support", he said, "We're not assuming this is just going to be a straight party-line vote".
