Trump says he has interviewed 4 candidates for high court

Abortion rights is emerging as a litmus test for the next Supreme Court nominee, with Democrats and at least one moderate Republican declaring they wouldn't support a nominee who opposes the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling that established a woman's right to abortion. She said she wouldn't vote for someone who would overturn Roe v. Wade.

Collins and even several Democrats agreed to back Gorsuch because they said he clearly valued legal precedent and the independence of US courts.

"I'm going to have an in-depth discussion with the nominee, and I believe very much that Roe v. Wade is settled law, as it has been described by Chief Justice Roberts", Collins later added on ABC.

What should President Trump look for in a Supreme Court nominee?

Raina had been used as a pinch-hitting, aggressive number three option, but the current situation might warrant a re-think. Kohli, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah and MS Dhoni were rested for the T20 tri-series in Sri Lanka in March.

Over the weekend, President Trump told Fox News he would "probably not" ask his nominee about how they would vote on the abortion law.

Collins noted that she was in favor of moving forward with a nominee in the next couple months, so a new justice could be in place by the time the Supreme Court's next term begins in October. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer issued a campaign-season call to action for voters to prevent such a nominee by putting "pressure on the Senate", which confirms judicial nominees.

Indeed, a new poll released Monday found such widespread support for Roe v. Wade.

"Well, if we put another two or perhaps three justices on, that's really what's going to be - that will happen", Trump said during the final debate of the 2016 presidential election.

OPEC agrees to increase oil production
Benchmark oil prices have already risen by around 70 percent over the a year ago , which should help restrain consumption growth. Iran had balked at the request because it faces sanctions after President Donald Trump ripped up an global nuclear agreement.

"My colleagues on both sides of the aisle [Democrats and Republicans] know that this could be one of the key votes of their entire career", Democratic Senator Maria Cantwell of Washington state said on NBC's Meet the Press program.

The White House is focusing on five to seven potential candidates to fill the vacancy of retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, a swing vote on the court. That means Democrats have a steep hill to climb if they intend to preserve the decisions on groundbreaking cases like Roe V. Wade and Obergefell v. Hodges. Collins responded that she actually doesn't think Gorsuch would vote to overturn Roe - a sentiment that prompted Mother Jones to wonder, "Is Susan Collins the most gullible person on the planet?"

It's not entirely clear how current conservatives on the Court would vote on the issue of overturning Roe v. Wade. "If they vote for somebody who is going to change [legal] precedent, it could be a career-ending move". Trump plans to announce his next Supreme Court nominee next week.

"No, I don't think it's fair to say that, and here's why".
