Stephanopoulos also asked Leo about an argument by some Democrats, including Blumenthal, that no new justice should be appointed until after special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation is finished because it would be improper for the president to nominate someone who may have jurisdiction over the probe. In addition, she is the youngest of the leading candidates, and Trump has said he wants his nominee to serve for decades.

"Certainly, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Barrett have a lot of name recognition among supporters of the president, and I think that ultimately, when people like them are nominated, you'll see a lot of folks line up", he said.

Trump has previously said he wanted "pro-life" justices opposed to abortion rights. "And their records are a little bit lighter".

In return, Hogue said, senators should demand of the nominee in the course of the confirmation process that they give an affirmative declaration that they would uphold Roe v Wade.

Outside adviser Leonard Leo, now on leave from the Federalist Society, said on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday that this kind of jockeying is standard, noting that "every potential nominee before announcement gets concerns expressed about them by people who might ultimately support them". But they're excellent. Every one.

"Trump will not be president", former President Obama said.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has reportedly told Trump that the judges presenting the fewest obstacles to confirmation are Raymond Kethledge of the Cincinnati-based 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and Thomas Hardiman of the Philadelphia-based 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Conservative and liberal interest groups are poised to spend tens of millions of dollars in advertising and grass-roots activity.

Chicago-based judge Amy Coney Barrett is the only female on Trump's short list.

Although a moderate conservative, Kennedy has always been considered the swing vote on the bench on devisive issues like abortion and LGBTQ rights.

Democrats are certain to press Trump's latest nominee on the landmark 1973 Roe v.
