Trump to announce Supreme Court pick to replace Kennedy on July 9

But she vowed a careful vetting of the person President Donald Trump picks, saying she has "extremely high" standards for the court and the person who will replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Two women are also reportedly on Trump's shortlist, including Judge Amy Coney Barrett, who is considered another frontrunner for Kennedy's seat.

Speaking to reporters aboard Air Force One en route from Washington to his private golf club in New Jersey, Trump said he may interview two contenders for the nomination this weekend.

"It's a great group of intellectual talent", Trump said.

The nine-point difference could suggest an enthusiasm gap between the parties, as liberal groups sound the alarm that a newly configured court could outlaw abortion rights if a conservative nominee replaces Kennedy's swing vote.

But Trump said he would not directly probe the candidates about their position on the Roe v. Wade decision. And his top deputy, Majority Whip John Cornyn of Texas, described a similar process when he said this: "I look forward to voting to confirm Justice Kennedy's successor this fall".

Justin Kennedy, the former global head of Deutsche Bank's real estate capital markets division, was reportedly one of Trump's closest business associates and most important lenders.

People continued to protest outside the Immigration and Customs Enforcement building Thursday off Macadam in southwest Portland. "The movement is not going anywhere we are committed to helping out the people who have been affected".

Trump on Friday told reporters he'd narrowed his list down to five. Mike Lee, R-Utah, and indicated he was pining for the nomination.

"He said he'd like the job, usually they don't say that", Trump. Trump welcomed Republicans Chuck Grassley, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski and Democrats Joe Manchin, Joe Donnelly and Heidi Heitkamp as part of the effort.

Trump's nominee must win confirmation by the Senate. And it typically takes months for the White House to vet judges and select a nominee.

The Judicial Crisis Network, a conservative political campaign organization, has launched a seven-figure ad buy aimed at vulnerable Democrats, said chief counsel and policy director Carrie Severino.

"That was a presidential election year, so it was very, very different", said Sen. "What we're seeing here is Gorsuch 2.0".

"The fact that there's a modest enthusiasm disadvantage isn't all that meaningful because there's already an enthusiasm gap for Republicans", he said, noting Democratic anger towards Trump.

With a little over a week before his big announcement, Trump is relishing the moment. Gun rights or restrictions were the most-cited issue, followed by health care, then civil rights.

"He is going to put someone on the court who will be the fifth vote to criminalize abortion, punish women and throw them in jail", declared Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America.
