Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said on Friday he hoped the confirmation process would be done "in time for the new justice to begin the fall term of the Supreme Court. the first Monday in October".
The United States Supreme Court ruled in favour of President Donald Trump's order to restrict travel from several majority Muslim countries to the U.S., in a 5-4 ruling on partisan lines, CNBC reports.

The White House said Trump's team also spoke with more than a dozen additional senators. "I stressed the importance of nominating someone to the Supreme Court who is pragmatic, fair, compassionate, committed to justice, and above politics".
