Trump has said he will select a nominee from a list of 25 names, many of them judges on federal and state courts across the country. Trump is also considering Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Amul Thapar, who could become the first Indian American to serve on the Supreme Court.

"I may have two of them come up, like the old days, to Bedminster", Trump said, referring to the staff and Cabinet interviews he held there in late 2016 during the presidential transition. You know, usually, they don't say that.

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said on Friday he hoped the confirmation process would be done "in time for the new justice to begin the fall term of the Supreme Court. the first Monday in October". "And because he's going to have the chance to appoint two Supreme Court justices". "It's a great group of intellectual talent. they are generally conservative", Trump said.

WASHINGTON, DC - APRIL 10: U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy is seen during a ceremony in the Rose Garden at the White House April 10, 2017 in Washington, DC. Nominated by Republican President Ronald Reagan and confirmed in 1988, Kennedy is widely thought to be a moderate and pivotal swing vote on the court. Joe Manchin III (W.Va.), Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.) and Joe Donnelly (Ind.) met with the president at the White House on Thursday night and are under pressure from liberal activists and their colleagues.

"I'm very proud of Neil Gorsuch", Trump continued. 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.

All of Trump's potential choices have been vetted by the conservative Federalist Society, he promised during the campaign, and all are relatively young.

The Democrats - Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Joe Donnelly of IN and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota - are running for re-election IN November IN states Trump won IN 2016. "What we're seeing here is Gorsuch 2.0".

In a statement, Murkowski noted her standards for the Supreme Court are "extremely high" and that she will cast an "independent vote" when the eventual nominee comes before the Senate.

With a little over a week before his big announcement, Trump is relishing the moment.

"From Day 1, I've heard, outside of war and peace of course, the most important decision you make is the selection of a Supreme Court judge, if you get it", Trump said on Friday.
