Trump's next Supreme Court pick will make Anthony Kennedy look like a flaming liberal

Trump invited all five to the White House for a private meeting the day after Kennedy announced his retirement.

Several Democratic senators considering 2020 presidential runs jumped into the debate Thursday, rallying from the steps of the Supreme Court. Sen.

A spotlight quickly focused on two Republican senators Thursday in the fight-to-come over President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nomination - Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski, whose support for abortion access will reverberate throughout the debate.

Kennedy's retirement "sends a stark message to the tens of millions of Americans who have long turned to the court for the vindication of many of their most cherished rights and protections: Look somewhere else", wrote The New York Times editorial board.

After nominating Justice Neil Gorsuch to fill a Supreme Court vacancy in January 2017, Trump appointed three judges who had previously clerked for Justice Kennedy to federal appeal courts, and included another two on the shortlist to fill any subsequent vacancies on the Supreme Court, The Times reported.

Nowhere is that truer than with Kennedy's rulings that ended discrimination against gays because "Trump is all but assured to replace Kennedy with a judge who shares the conservatives' opposition to gay rights".

Only one is a woman: Judge Amy Coney Barrett of the Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

All are under 55, with Barrett the youngest at 46 and Kavanaugh the oldest at 53.

"We have great people. highly talented, brilliant, mostly conservative judges", Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One.

The group got its start on college campuses when Ronald Reagan was in the White House. The FT says Kennedy was "one of Mr Trump's most trusted associates over a 12-year spell at Deutsche". Mike Lee (R-Utah).

With the successful push for Justice Neil Gorsuch still fresh in their minds, their effort this time is expected to follow a similar playbook. "The way he puts it, is someone who is quote, 'not weak, '" Leo said.

Ninety percent of Democrats said the vacancy would make them more likely to vote for a Democratic Senate candidate in the November 6 election, compared with 81 percent of Republicans who said the issue would make them more likely to vote for a Senate candidate from their party. The FBI is still conducting background checks, the person said.

With Gorsuch, his body of work and his writing were important, but Trump was also impressed by his educational record and his class ranking.

As many of you will remember, Deutsche Bank isn't just any bank.

Senators, particularly Democratic ones, are warning the president that he should consult with lawmakers before making a choice.

"I think that you will see continued White House outreach", Short said. "Instead, Kennedy retired smack dab in the second year of Trump after developing a close acquaintance with the president".

Democratic Sen. Joe Donnelly of IN met with the president Thursday evening and reported afterward they had a productive conversation. He added that two women are among his top candidates for the job. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. Democrats Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota also talked to Trump.

"I like them all", he said.

"The president has never asked a prospective nominee about Roe v. Wade or abortion in any way shape or form". He said those topics are "inappropriate to discuss".
