She said she wouldn't vote for someone who would overturn Roe v. Wade.

One of the candidates in a short list of 25 potential nominees announced by Trump during his campaign included Judge Amul Thapar, who is now a federal judge in Kentucky.

"We'll make a decision. over the next few days and we'll be announcing it on Monday", Trump said.

Before Kennedy's retirement, the four judges who were appointed by Democratic presidents had an average age of 71.5 years, nearly five years more than the five judges appointed by Republicans.

During the third and final 2016 presidential debate, Trump made it clear that he would appoint justices that would overturn Roe v. Wade, leaving it up to each individual state to legalize abortion or make it illegal. He played the same role in the successful confirmation of Justice Neil Gorsuch past year.

The White House said Monday that White House Counsel Don McGahn will oversee the selection process and deputy press secretary Raj Shah is taking a leave of absence to work on the confirmation full time.

Speculation is growing as to whether the landmark ruling will be overturned when President Trump makes his pick to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court.

Should all Democrats vote against a Trump nominee, Republicans will only be able to afford to lose one vote.

"During the morning, I interviewed and met with four potential justices of our great Supreme Court", he said.

Trump said that he will not ask candidates about their stance on Roe v. Wade.

NARAL and other pro-choice groups are demanding that Collins recognize the danger of confirming a nominee who, like Judge William Pryor, has called Roe vs. Wade "the worst abomination of constitutional law in our history" or Judge Amy Coney Barrett, who has called it an "erroneous decision".

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., the top Dem on the Senate Judiciary Committee, delivered a 10-minute statement on the pending Supreme Court vacancy last week, urging to both bump the nomination to the next Congress and fill it with a compromise candidate.
