Before his selection previous year of Neil Gorsuch to replace deceased justice Antonin Scalia, Trump interviewed multiple candidates including Thomas M Hardiman, who serves on the third circuit court of appeals alongside Trump's sister, Maryanne Trump Barry.
Both Chief Justice John Roberts and Gorsuch, Trump's first pick to the high court, have indicated more broadly that they respect legal precedent.
More than half of the 25 names on Trump's list come from the appellate courts, including four whom he interviewed Monday.
Sanders said Monday that White House Counsel Don McGahn will lead the overall process.
"I would not support a nominee who demonstrated hostility to Roe v. Wade", Susan Collins toldCNN's "State of the Union" program, referring to the 1973 landmark abortion decision. Trump says he will make his choice by July 9, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell promises that the Senate will vote to confirm him or her this fall, presumably ahead of November's already-contentious midterm elections. Top contenders include federal appeals judges Brett Kavanaugh, Raymond Kethledge, Amul Thapar and Amy Coney Barrett - all of whom spoke with Trump on Monday. The senator's office characterized the call as an interview, but the White House would only say the two spoke. Republicans ended up resorting to a rule created by the Democrats in 2013, by Democratic Sen.
Consider this: A few weeks ago, before the newest Supreme Court vacancy, Demand Justice conducted a focus group in Columbus, Ohio. Sources involved in the selection process told The Daily Caller à la Varys' little birds that "an anti-Kavanaugh whisper campaign has been under way since the news of Kennedy's retirement broke", stemming from his connections to the Bush dynasty.
The senator was in Utah at the time of Trump's call, his spokesman Conn Carroll said, adding that he knew no further details. There were the four interviews Monday, as well as a conversation with Republican Sen.

NARAL Pro-Choice America announced Tuesday that it had purchased full-page ads in four newspapers in ME as well as ad space on the publications' websites.
Before Kennedy's retirement, the four judges who were appointed by Democratic presidents had an average age of 71.5 years, nearly five years more than the five judges appointed by Republicans. Collins voted in favor of Gorsuch, a conservative, because he is a believer in relying on precedent and authored a book on the subject.
In January, Collins was one of two Republicans who voted against banning abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy along with Sen.
In the coming weeks, you'll hear critics charging that Trump's pick is not sufficiently independent, that he's no Anthony Kennedy.
That is not to say that the Trump court will not embroider on the edges of the law, perhaps by allowing some state-imposed restrictions that do not flagrantly deny a woman's right to an abortion. But he told reporters Friday that he would not question potential high-court nominees about their views on abortion, saying it was "inappropriate to discuss". Many observers believe that with Kennedy replaced by a more consistently conservative justice, the court could reconsider decisions authorizing legal abortion, same-sex marriage and other socially liberal rulings. They are outstanding people.
