Sen. Tim Kaine says Roe v. Wade is "very much in jeopardy"

Sen. Joe Manchin III in Washington on May 9

The retirement of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy has given President Donald Trump an unprecedented opportunity to sway the high court for decades, as Kennedy has often served as the panel's crucial swing vote on a plethora of issues.

President Trump must walk a fine line in selecting a Supreme Court justice as he pursues a route that will result in confirmation in the narrowly divided Senate ahead of the 2018 midterm elections, and Collins seems to enjoy the leverage her critical role in that process brings. The list has existed since Trump began searching for late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's replacement at the beginning of Trump's presidential term, which ultimately led to the appointment of Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch.

"That'll happen automatically, in my opinion, because I am putting pro-life justices on the court", Trump said.

Hume said if Trump loses the support of Collins and Murkowski "it's hard to believe" the Republicans would "pick up any Democrats" to achieve a majority confirming the nominee. In addition to Collins, the group of two Republicans and three Democrats included Sens.

The president's words come amid concern from abortion rights supporters that he will nominate a conservative judge who would vote to overturn the landmark case that legalized the procedure nationwide.

"I'm going to pick someone who is outstanding", he said.




But she emphasized that they had to talk about precedent.

The interviews were with federal appeals judges Raymond Kethledge, Amul Thapar, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett, said a person with knowledge of the meetings who was not authorized to speak publicly about them.

Trump's nominee must win Senate confirmation.

"I would not support a nominee who demonstrated hostility to Roe v. Wade because that would mean to me that their judicial philosophy did not include a respect for established decisions, established law", Collins said. And Justin Clark, the director of the Office of Public Liaison, will oversee White House coordination with outside groups. 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. The White House had no immediate comment on the report. John McCain not voting in the Senate due to his serious cancer, Republicans hold the barest of margins in what is now consequently a 50-49 Senate. "You know, usually, they don't say that", Trump told reporters last Friday, before calling Lee "very talented" and "very smart".

Pro-choice activists are reportedly sending Sen. That judicial approach typically involves a more literal interpretation of the Constitution as compared to broader rulings such as Roe. Vice President Mike Pence can break a tie.
