Trump says his U.S. Supreme Court pick will be 'outstanding'

Trump said that he may interview one or two candidates this weekend at his resort in Bedminster, New Jersey.

U.S. Sen. Susan Collins said Sunday that she won't support a U.S. Supreme Court nominee who has "demonstrated hostility" to Roe v. Wade.

In an appearance on ABC's "This Week," Collins said Trump's current list includes people she "could not vote for". "So someone who devotes that much time to writing a book on precedent, I think understands how important a principle that is in our judicial system".

Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said Sunday that she wouldn't vote for a Supreme Court nominee who would overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that legalized abortion nationwide.

The retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy, the swing vote on a number of contentious issues gave Trump an opportunity to tilt the high court far to the right.

Trump was pressed on his view of abortion, women's reproductive rights and restrictions being decided on a state basis, not federal. Trump did not rule out there will be some "vicious" attacks against his appointee. "I think we'll have a lot of support".

Amazon's dependence on services like USPS, UPS and FedEx, which now deliver the bulk of its packages, also has downsides. It's unclear if Amazon will cut back on its postal deliveries in favour of its own and how quickly that could happen.

"I actually don't", Collins said when asked whether she believed Gorsuch would vote against Roe v. Wade. "And indeed it would be inappropriate to ask a judge nominee on how they are going to vote in a future case".

Trump said he plans to interview six or seven people from his candidate list and will make an announcement of his pick on July 9. Republicans now hold a 51-seat majority in the Senate, and a Supreme Court nominee will be confirmed by a simple majority of votes. In 2002, according to Talking Points Memo, Collins said: "The Republican party should be as synonymous with protecting a woman's right to choose as the Democratic party is with expanded government or raising taxes".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said Wednesday on the Senate floor that he anticipates voting on Kennedy's successor in the fall. Gorsuch was confirmed after Senate Republicans refused to hold hearings in 2016 on former President Barack Obama's nominee to replace Scalia, Judge Merrick Garland, though Collins had called on her colleagues to consider his nomination. Even though McConnell changed Senate rules previous year to allow confirmation by simple majority, if Democrats hold together, he can not afford defections. Collins, who supports Roe V. Wade, is a key vote in the Senate, where Republicans only have a one vote majority in the chamber. "A candidate for this important position who would overturn Roe v. Wade would not be acceptable to me because that would indicate an activist agenda that I don't want to see a judge have".
