Trump says process to replace Kennedy will 'begin immediately'

Republicans changed Senate rules past year to get Trump's conservative nominee, Neil Gorsuch, confirmed, lowering the threshold to advance Supreme Court nominations to a simple majority vote. As newly inaugurated President Barack Obama said in January 2009, "Elections have consequences, and at the end of the day, I won".

He'll take a look at a list of 25 potential nominees that was assembled with the help of conservative interest groups. "So unless the Democrats retake the Senate, which is unlikely, Trump will be able to select a justice who would vote to overturn Roe".

The court could well decide the outcome of the recent family separation crisis at the border, too, and existential questions about the Trump presidency itself if that is where Robert MuellerRobert Swan MuellerSasse: US should applaud choice of Mueller to lead Russian Federation probe MORE's investigation leads. That will give President Donald Trump the chance to cement conservative control of the high court.

West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin says it would be tough to support someone who would revamp the landmark decision.

"I view Roe v. Wade as being settled law", she said.

In a 5-4 ruling, the Supreme Court bench handed over President Trump one of his biggest victories since taking charge of the White House in January past year, by upholding his executive order that sought ban on travelling from five Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States.

In an opinion this year by Kennedy in a case involving a Colorado bakery, the court on a 7-2 vote ruled narrowly on the issue, but it punted on the larger question of whether to allow religious-based exemptions to anti-discrimination laws.

Rather, this Supreme Court nomination will engender the most epic battle over such a nomination that this country has ever seen. The University of MI graduate was originally nominated to his current job by Bush in 2006, but due to opposition from Michigan's two Democratic senators, he was not confirmed until a compromise deal was reached two years later. Donnelly has traveled with Trump on Air Force One, and appeared alongside the president at a recent bill signing ceremony at the White House.

He called Kennedy a "spectacular man" with "tremendous heart" and said he hoped to pick somebody who will be as "outstanding" as Kennedy has been.

Trump has acted quickly on his selection process. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell invoked the nuclear option, lowering the threshold from the super majority of 60 votes that is normally required for confirmation to a simple majority. Advisers within the administration include White House Counsel Don McGahn.

Prominent on that list are Judges Thomas Hardiman of Pennsylvania and William Pryor of Alabama, seriously considered for the seat eventually filled by Justice Gorsuch, and Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who serves on the federal appeals court in Washington, DC.

Kavanaugh is a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.

Trump clearly got it right with Neil Gorsuch. Leo said he expected that work to start before Trump leaves on July 10 for a trip to Europe, adding that it was "not outside the realm of possibility" that the search process could conclude by then. And outside supporters have already begun a public advocacy campaign, focusing their pressure on Democratic senators in states that supported Trump. He's advised Trump on other judicial nominees.

Some civil liberties groups and immigration advocates likened the ruling to a 1944 Supreme Court decision upholding an executive order that required Americans of Japanese ancestry to be sent to detention camps. "What we're seeing here is Gorsuch 2.0".

Although Republicans are in the majority, Trump's nominee is not assured of confirmation. "Was it?" as he announced his pick on prime-time television. Trump relished the suspense of the final reveal, asking "So was that a surprise?"
