  • Conservative lawyers steer Trump on Supreme Court pick

Then he said this: "And abortion will be illegal in a significant part of the United States in 18 months".

The sentiment, echoed by evangelical leaders across the country this past week, underscores the delicate politics that surround a moment many religious conservatives have longed for. Virtually raised in the law (His father, Rex Lee, was President Ronald Reagan's solicitor general, and his brother, Tom Lee, is a justice of the Utah Supreme Court), Brigham Young graduate Lee clerked for Samuel Alito when the justice was an appellate judge.

On whether the time was right for a conservative woman to join the court, Trump said: "Could be". Women's groups have already raised the alarm for their constituents, particularly suburban women, who are poised to play an outsized role in the fight for the House majority this November.

In a survey of about 1,500 people, the Kaiser Family Foundation found slightly more than two-thirds of respondents favored keeping the ruling in Roe vs. Wade.

Donald Trump wants his Supreme Court pick to still be on the bench in 2043 as he spends the weekend working his way through a list of five runners and riders. It doesn't matter if he asks them about their opinions on abortion rights because by the time a candidate interviews with him, they would have already been asked in the earlier vetting process.

Perkins agreed with Moore that the broader push for religious freedom was a bigger conservative focus.

For example, 21 states limit when a pregnant woman can get an abortion based on the age of the fetus.




"We'd be very happy if he'd pick any name on that list", said Severino. He added: "Evangelicals have never been more confident in the future of America than they are now. It's just a fact", he said.

Collins has a more reliable record in favor of abortion rights, and boasts a 70-percent vote rating in 2018 from Planned Parenthood's political arm.

"I like them all", Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One.

The president's standing with white evangelical Christians hit an all-time high in April when 75 percent of evangelicals held a favorable view of Trump, according to a poll conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute.

Trump "likes Mike, and Mike would do it". Meanwhile, Mr. Trump received a prank call Friday from comedian John Melendez, who posed as a New Jersey Sen. Trump promised he would. Trump passed over Hardiman in favor of Neil Gorsuch, who has proven to be reliably conservative in his tenure so far and has been a key vote in numerous controversial 5-4 decisions, including the decision to uphold the president's travel ban. Trump invited all five to the White House for a private meeting the day after Kennedy announced his retirement.

"He's an outstanding talent", Trump said of Lee.
