He added that two women are among his top candidates for the job.

"I've got it down to about five", Trump said, including two women.

Kennedy will retire on July 31, after more than 30 years on the court.

Trump's interviews may begin as early as this weekend in New Jersey.

Of course, overturning Roe v. Wade will do nothing to end abortion, it will only make it less safe for expectant parents who want the procedure and harder to regulate. "And I'm going to try and do something like that, but I don't think I'm going to be so specific".

Collins, who favors a woman's right to choose on abortion, joined like-minded Republican Lisa Murkowski at the White House meeting.

The strategy mirrors one Mr Trump has been pursuing for appointments to the lower courts, where younger than normal judges have often been selected.

Trump's statement that two women are included in his shortlist for the position may be meant to neutralize any plans by Democrats to stage an all-out war in the Senate.

Kennedy's retirement will give Trump the opportunity to appoint his second justice and reshape the nation's highest court for generations.

Prominent on the list of possible successors are Judges Thomas Hardiman of Pennsylvania, who was seriously considered for the seat eventually filled by Gorsuch, and Brett Kavanaugh, who serves on the federal appeals court in Washington and is a former Kennedy law clerk. Only one is a woman: Judge Amy Coney Barrett of the Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Taliban say ceasefire will not be extended, fighting to resume
The group has killed hundreds of people in multiple attacks across the country since it first emerged in the region in 2014. Ghani's extension of the ceasefire drew immediate global support and calls for the Taliban to reciprocate.


President Trump initially bashed Heitkamp at a rally in North Dakota this week in which he urged voters to support her GOP opponent, Rep. Kevin Cramer.

"Mike Lee, he's an outstanding talent", Trump said. "I love that issue if they're going to actually do that".

In the wise words of Maya Angelou, "When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time".

Among Trump's counselors is Leonard Leo, who is taking a leave of absence as executive vice president of the Federalist Society to serve as an outside adviser in the selection process.

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.

"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.

In the run-up to selecting Gorsuch, Trump met with three contenders and White House officials vetted several more.

"We'd be very happy if he'd pick any name on that list", said Severino.

For Republicans' part, they need to balance actively campaigning against the trio in 2018, while courting their votes for the Supreme Court nominee.
