President Trump is narrowing down his list of potential Supreme Court nominees to replace retiring justice Anthony Kennedy.

He started out with 25 candidates and now it’s down to seven.

The president interviewed four federal appeals court judges this week.

Senators say they’re concerned about how the nominees feel about Roe vs. Wade, the controversial Supreme Court case that made abortion legal in 1973.

Candidate Bret Kavanaugh said he considered Roe vs. Wade a “settled law” during his federal court confirmation hearing in 2006.

Another candidate, Amy Coney Barrett, defended her Catholic faith during her confirmation hearing when asked about the abortion law.

President Trump says he will announce his Supreme Court nominee on Monday.
