Donald Trump says he will announce who will be the new Supreme Court on Monday 9 July.
Trump thus nominates his second judge to the US Supreme Court. The new referee takes over Anthony Kennedy, who this week announced that he retires in late July.
Trump informed the press Friday that he is considering two women, but that as many as seven people can be interviewed.
Asking if he would ask the candidates about their view of abortion, Trump said that this is something he does not want to do.
“It’s not a question I’m going to ask. That’s inappropriate, said Trump, who will start interviewing people Monday.
Trumps first nomination, Neil Gorsuch, was approved by the Senate and taken oath in April 2017.
