Trump to announce Supreme Court pick to replace Kennedy on July 9

He said the voices of millions of Americans heading to the polls this fall "deserve to be heard".

Twice, though, Roberts was among a larger grouping of justices in cases that skirted the big issue at stake, but that could return to the court.

The Supreme Court ruled Monday on whether Texas drew election districts based on racial demographics. "Well, if we put another two or perhaps three justices on, that's really what's going to be - that will happen", said Trump when asked during a presidential debate whether he wanted to see the Supreme Court overturn Roe v. Wade.

He added that, "Some people think outside of obviously war and peace it's the most important thing that you can have". The FBI is still conducting background checks, the person said.

Trump's comments are the latest sign he is moving rapidly to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, who announced his retirement this week.

During an interview Friday on a West Virginia radio station, Manchin said he told the president the same about repealing the Affordable Care Act, saying "all that stuff is red flags for all Americans".

RAYMOND GRUENDER of Missouri, US Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit: Gruender has been on Trump's short list since before the 2016 election.

Justice Kennedy, 81, will retire on 31 July, per his letter to Mr Trump.

If Trump, as expected, nominates a steadfast conservative to the bench, that shift is likely to become entrenched for many years to come. If the Senate divides 50-50, Vice President Mike Pence could break a tie to confirm the nominee. He sided with liberals to advance gay rights, save ObamaCare and limit the death penalty, while voting with the conservative wing to protect religious liberty and limit campaign finance laws.

A top official with the Federalist Society is praising retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy as a "dedicated public servant". It won't work. The president will quickly nominate a Kennedy replacement. He has advised Trump in the past on judicial picks.
