Takeaways from a momentous Supreme Court term

"You want someone that's going to show that kind of independence, and is not going to set us back to a time when a woman was made a criminal just for exercising her own reproductive rights", Klobuchar said on "This Week". The president has already said he intends to install a conservative justice in his place. When asked about the effect his presidency has already had on the nation's highest court, Trump emphasized that recent major decisions by the conservative majority - he specifically referenced one against public-sector unions - were likely due to his appointment of Justice Neil Gorsuch a year ago.

Trump picked Gorsuch to replace Antonin Scalia for a lifetime job on the Supreme Court in January 2017, and now must nominate someone to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy. But he barreled forward as he engaged Mr. Trump in a discussion about what he should say to his constituents in New Jersey about the Trump administration's immigration policies that have led to migrant families being separated at the southwestern border.

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. Mike Lee, who is the one non-judge on the list. He met Thursday with key Republican and Democratic senators at the White House in the evening to discuss the vacancy.

Trump himself described Supreme Court nominee selection as the most important decision he can make "outside of war and peace". As the Post reports, Trump "also wants to see a portfolio of solid academic writing, though this adviser acknowledged Trump does not care to read it; he simply wants to know it exists".

"I'm very proud of Neil Gorsuch", Trump continued.
