Trump says he will announce his Supreme Court pick on July 9

Trump says he is considering two women for Supreme Court - Philly

So you're not just voting on whether you think Trump should have his nominee. "But I'm putting conservative people on, and I'm very proud of Neil Gorsuch".

Trump's comments come as a crucial moderate Republican senator said any nominee to the Court who said they would vote to overturn Roe would not be "acceptable". At one point, he said he would probably interview six or seven candidates, including possibly two this weekend.

President Trump was back for more Twitter fun on Saturday afternoon, renewing his early morning thoughts with a new round of tweets.

Trump has previously said he is committed to nominating justices to the Supreme Court who would be willing to overturn the landmark case, which has long drawn the ire of anti-abortion activists and conservatives.

Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy, who announced his retirement last week, was often the swing vote on the Supreme Court and voted to upheld Roe in multiple instances. 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 past year.

Trump himself described Supreme Court nominee selection as the most important decision he can make "outside of war and peace".

Lastly, the adviser said Trump wants his pick to "interpret the Constitution the way the framers meant it to be". There are allegedly five candidates to fill the seat, including two women. "You know, usually they don't say that".
