"Probably not", the president told Fox News' Maria Bartiromo. 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 past year.

Trump, however, described his group of candidates as "highly talented, very brilliant, mostly conservative judges".

Trump's comments come as a crucial moderate Republican senator said any nominee to the Court who said they would vote to overturn Roe would not be "acceptable".

He said he is "very proud" of his successful nomination of conservative Justice Neil M. Gorsuch a year ago. "I'm going to try and do something like that, but I don't think I'm going to be so specific". He said he hoped the president's pick will get some support from Democrats despite the criticism from liberals that began moments after Justice Kennedy announced his retirement.
