He concludes, "If you do not want a Supreme Court Justice who will overturn Roe v. Wade and undo the Affordable Care Act, tell your senators they should not vote for a candidate from Mr. Trump's preordained list".

Trump plans to announce his next Supreme Court nominee next week.

Assuming Trump nominates the kind of justice he has said he intends to nomination, Nelson said he is optimistic the Senate can block it even though Democrats lack enough votes.

She added: "Roe v Wade is a constitutional right that is well established".

Trump's nominee must win confirmation by the Senate.

Republican Sen. Susan Collins says she would oppose any nominee she believed would overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion.

Spokesman Raj Shah will take leave from his role in the press office to work full time on "communications, strategy and messaging coordination with Capitol Hill allies". "But I'm putting conservative people on", said Trump.

"But Democrats, and critics, and others are saying [Roe v. Wade is] the No. 1 major issue in terms of the Supreme Court", Shawn said.

Interested in Donald Trump?

That may be a moot distinction, given as Trump's list of prospective nominees was crafted with the assistance of the Federalist Society, a conservative legal think tank that is deeply hostile to reproductive rights.

During her confirmation hearings past year, Senate Democrats were widely criticized for grilling Barrett on her Catholic faith, despite her insistence that she would not "impose" her personal convictions on the law.

President Donald Trump said he interviewed four Supreme Court candidates on Monday to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, telling reporters he would be making a decision in the coming days.

Sanders wouldn't provide the names of the candidates who met with Trump or the two to three candidates expected to meet with the president later this week.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday that White House Counsel Don McGahn will lead the overall process. Also of interest are Amul Thapar, who serves on the federal appeals court in Cincinnati; Brett Kavanaugh, a former clerk for Kennedy who serves on the federal appeals court in Washington, D.C.; and Amy Coney Barrett, who serves on the federal appeals court in Chicago. In the instance of a 50-50 tie, Vice President Mike Pence would cast the deciding vote.

Collins appeared on ABC's "This Week" and CNN's "State of the Union", Leo spoke on "Fox News Sunday" and Graham was on NBC's "Meet the Press".
