Trump says his U.S. Supreme Court pick will be 'outstanding'

Trump has said he will announce his nominee on July 9.

"It's probably going to be vicious because the other side, all they can do is obstruct and resist", Trump said in an interview with Fox Business that aired Sunday. "I think we'll have a lot of support".

Susan Collins (R-Maine) remains on board with the president's selection, even though she has said she's ruled out multiple candidates due to their potential stance on the landmark Roe vs. Wade case.

Collins said that Democrats' desire to delay the vote for Justice Kennedy's replacement "goes back to the hypocrisies" of the Democrats, pointing out that Justice Elena Kagan was confirmed to the high court in 2010, a midterm election year. "That's a very complex question".

When asked about the effect his presidency has already had on the nation's highest court, Trump emphasized that recent major decisions by the conservative majority - he specifically referenced one against public-sector unions - were likely due to his appointment of Justice Neil Gorsuch previous year.

Canada announces final list of retaliatory tariffs
Trump has threatened to impose significant new tariffs on auto parts and cars if Canada implements the retaliatory tariffs. Today's announcement is a good first step to counter the impact of unreasonable US trade demands on workers in Canada.

The Maine senator did vote for Trump's previous Supreme Court pick, now-Justice Neil Gorsuch, saying on CNN that - contrary to popular opinion - she did not believe Gorsuch would vote to overturn Roe v. Wade.

U.S. Sen. Susan Collins said Sunday that she won't support a U.S. Supreme Court nominee who has "demonstrated hostility" to Roe v. Wade.

Collins noted that she isn't "comfortable" with everyone on Trump's shortlist to replace Kennedy, noting that in 2005 she voted against confirming one of them, Judge William Pryor, to the Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit. "I care deeply about who serves on the court".

"I want a judge that will apply the law to the facts of the case with fidelity to the Constitution", she said "Roe v. Wade is a constitutional right that is well-established, and no less an authority than Justice Roberts said that repeatedly at his confirmation hearing".

"And so I would say to my colleagues ... to not just trust that what somebody says to you in a conversation trying to get your vote is what's going to happen when they are on the Supreme Court", Duckworth said.
