Trump Says He Will Announce Supreme Court Pick on July 9

"We're not assuming this is just going to be a straight party-line vote", Mr. McConnell said. "But I'm putting conservative people on", said Trump.

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

President Donald Trump is little more than one week from deciding on his Supreme Court nominee to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, who announced his retirement on Wednesday.

In addition to talking about the Supreme Court, Mr. Trump also told reporters that he planned to discuss a variety of topics - including Syria, Ukraine and elections - with President Vladimir V. Putin of Russian Federation during their inaugural summit meeting next month in Helsinki, Finland.

The final point echoes the legal philosophy of Trump's last Supreme Court pick, Justice Neil Gorsuch, a renowned textualist, meaning someone who seeks to interpret laws according to their plain text over the intent of their writers or the laws' consequences.

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

In a tweet, Trump opined that the USA economy has probably been "stronger", adding that it was "exciting times for our country".

"He's an outstanding talent", Trump said of Lee. Among the candidates he's considering are two women, and he told reporters that he might meet with candidates over a golf weekend.

Asked by Fox's Maria Bartiromo whether he would ask potential nominees how they might come down on Roe v. Wade, Trump said: "Well, that's a big one. You've got to hit every one of them".
