"Heidi will vote "no" for any pick we make for the Supreme Court", Trump said.

WASHINGTON, DC - APRIL 10: U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy is seen during a ceremony in the Rose Garden at the White House April 10, 2017 in Washington, DC.

He plans to begin interviewing possible candidates Monday but may meet with some this weekend in New Jersey. "Wade-reversal" target="_blank">The Associated Press in an interview that despite Trump's public cautioning that he won't ask potential nominees to the Supreme Court about their stance on abortion, evangelicals remain highly confident in Trump's eventual pick to fill the recent vacancy.

He added, "I think it's inappropriate to discuss".

Henne, however, said Democratic anger would only intensify during and after the nomination battle, which is likely to consume Washington for months and thrust the court's ideological makeup into the forefront of voters' minds. He helped compile a 25-person list of likely nominees from which Trump has said he will make his selection.

Republicans changed Senate rules previous year to get Trump's conservative nominee Neil Gorsuch confirmed, lowering the threshold to advance Supreme Court nominations to a simple majority vote. Of the five candidates believed to be frontrunners, all five have spoken at Federalist Society events, reports Business Insider.

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.

"I like them all", Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One. "When people start taking notice that a woman's right to choose could be in peril, these numbers will look a bit different".

Other names on Trump's shortlist reportedly include former Kennedy clerk Raymond Kethledge; Amul Thapar, the preferred choice of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell; and Sen. Mike Lee, who is the one non-judge on the list.

Trump says of the candidates under consideration, "It's a great group of intellectual talent". "I love that issue if they're going to actually do that".

"I'm not going to ask them that question", Trump said. Trump passed over Hardiman in favor of Neil Gorsuch, who has proven to be reliably conservative in his tenure so far and has been a key vote in numerous controversial 5-4 decisions, including the decision to uphold the president's travel ban.

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

The Supreme Court job is for life. "What we're seeing here is Gorsuch 2.0". Trump relished the suspense of the final reveal, asking "So was that a surprise?" Gun rights or restrictions were the most-cited issue, followed by health care, then civil rights.
