Trump says he's interviewed four candidates for Supreme Court

Sen. Susan Collins R-Maine said Sunday that any judge who wants to overturn Roe v. Wade has an

Collins noted that she was in favor of moving forward with a nominee in the next couple months, so a new justice could be in place by the time the Supreme Court's next term begins in October.

The Trump administration created a "confirmation team" Monday to help the President's Supreme Court nominee make his or her way through Congress as liberal lawmakers vowed to fight the President's pick tooth and nail.

Judicial Crisis Network's ad is part of a seven-figure national cable and digital campaign, and praises Trump's list of 25 potential nominees for the court, before going on to decry "extremist" Democrats who they claim will "lie and attack" the President's eventual nominee.

Murkowski and Maine Sen.

The Republicans have slender two-vote lead in the 100-member Senate and at least one Senator from the party, Susan Collins has said that keeping abortions legal would be a requirement for her to support the Trump nominee and another, Lisa Murkowski, has previously opposed efforts to overturn the 1973 ruling.

Trump has said that he will announce his choice next Monday.

Like many, he directed his frustration at team coach Joachim Loew, who he said pursued too much of a defensive strategy. One team the likes of Argentina, Brazil and Portugal wouldn't like to meet in the knockout round is Germany .


He said nominees have not taken a position on issues publicly that are likely to come before them on the court.

In fact, in 2017, Neil Gorsuch - Trump's first Supreme Court pick who now sits on the court - said he would have "walked out the door" had Trump asked him to overturn Roe v. Wade because "that's not what judges do". Even though McConnell changed Senate rules past year to allow confirmation by simple majority, if Democrats hold together, he can not afford defections. In another Sunday morning interview, Collins said she would not support a Trump nominee who she believed would support overturning Roe v. Wade.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Justin Clark, director of the Office of Public Liaison, "will oversee White House outreach with key constituencies, coalitions, grassroots organizations and allies".

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. So you're not just voting on whether you think Trump should have his nominee. The ads will start appearing on Wednesday. Also of interest are Amul Thapar, who serves on the federal appeals court in Cincinnati; Brett Kavanaugh, a former clerk for Kennedy who serves on the federal appeals court in Washington, D.C.; and Amy Coney Barrett, who serves on the federal appeals court in Chicago. Trump said while running for president that he would nominate "pro-life" justices to the Court, but it's not exactly clear how pro-life they have to be.

Collins-she said in a Sunday interview on ABC's This Week that she could only vote for a judge that respects precedent.

And if the votes result in a tie, Vice President Pence will hold the tie-breaking vote-and his anti-abortion stance is well-known.
