He said Democratic senators running for reelection in conservative states, like West Virginia and in, face a "lose-lose" scenario: Risk angering their base voters by supporting Trump's pick, or vote no and harm their chances among the Republicans and moderates they still need to win.

The 81-year-old Kennedy announced his retirement on Wednesday, giving Trump his second seat on the court to fill since he took office in January 2017. He said he planned to interview one or two of them this weekend in Bedminster, New Jersey, where he is spending time with family at his private golf course. "Wade-reversal" target="_blank">The Associated Press in an interview that despite Trump's public cautioning that he won't ask potential nominees to the Supreme Court about their stance on abortion, evangelicals remain highly confident in Trump's eventual pick to fill the recent vacancy.

They are also the only two Republican women who support abortion rights - with some caveats - and they could ultimately be the deciding votes on the Supreme Court nomination if all 49 members of the Senate Democratic caucus (including two independents) band together and oppose the nominee as a unified block.

Other women on the list include Joan Larsen, who serves on the federal appeals court in Cincinnati and previously served as a Michigan Supreme Court Justice, and Allison Eid, who serves on the federal appeals court based in Denver and previously served as a Colorado Supreme Court justice.

Leonard Leo, who is taking a leave of absence as executive vice president of the Federalist Society to serve as an outside adviser in the selection process, said Trump "wants to move swiftly and I think that probably means in the next two or three weeks". "I said, 'Mr. President, that's your choice'". Women's groups have already raised the alarm for their constituents, particularly suburban women, who are poised to play an outsized role in the fight for the House majority this November.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) said it was the end of the U.S. Constitution.

Trump says of the candidates under consideration, "It's a great group of intellectual talent". "I actually saw him on television last night where he said he'd love the job". "They're all saying, 'don't do that, you shouldn't do that, ' but I'm putting conservative people on and I'm very proud of Neil Gorsuch who has been outstanding".

Falwell insisted only that Trump make his next selection from the list of prospective nominees he released before his election.

White House aide Marc Short said on MSNBC that the White House hoped for a Senate confirmation vote in September. Trump welcomed Republicans Chuck Grassley, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski and Democrats Joe Manchin, Joe Donnelly and Heidi Heitkamp as part of the effort.

"That's not a question I'll be asking them", he said. Despite the slim majority, Senate Republicans only need a 51-vote majority to confirm the Supreme Court nominee after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) changed the rules to allow it in the case of Supreme Court justice confirmations.
