Republicans changed Senate rules previous year to get Trump's conservative nominee Neil Gorsuch confirmed, lowering the threshold to advance Supreme Court nominations to a simple majority vote.

Trump said he planned to interview one or two candidates this weekend at his private golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey. 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.

It will be his second Supreme Court pick, one that will give him an opportunity to cement the conservative majority on the nation's high court for years to come.

Trump's nominee must win confirmation by the Senate. Trump asked Manchin, the senator recalled.

"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. Several Democratic senators have re-election campaigns this fall in states that Trump won and are considered in jeopardy. When it comes to the Supreme Court fight, that list is quickly culled to just three for one reason: they are the only Democrats who voted to confirm Gorsuch in 2017 - Indiana Sen.


White House aides said other names are in the mix as well.

Pro-choice demonstrators wave signs in front of the US Supreme Court 30 November 2005, in Washington, DC. Red-state Democrats are generally loathe to make their campaigns about social issues, and Heitkamp has preferred to work with the Trump administration on economic and energy grounds.

"I like them all", he said. "And that'll happen automatically, in my opinion, because I am putting pro-life justices on the court". "This is a line that's been drawn about whether we are going to criminalize women, whether we are going to be arresting women for making decisions about their bodies".
