President Donald Trump said he probably won’t ask people he interviews to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy whether they would overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 abortion ruling.

“That’s a big one. And probably not,” Trump told Fox Business Network host Maria Bartiromo in an interview to be broadcast on Sunday Morning Futures. “They’re all saying, ‘Don’t do that, you shouldn’t do that.’” He added, “I’m going to try and do something, but I don’t think I’ll be so specific.”
