President Donald Trump on Sunday said he “probably” wouldn’t ask potential Supreme Court appointees whether they would overturn landmark abortion case Roe v. Wade — though he also said he could envision a time when abortion is legislated by the states.

Trump spoke with Maria Bartiromo on Fox News’ Sunday Morning Futures about his Supreme Court pick, who could play an enormously influential role in deciding such issues as LGBTQ and abortion rights. When asked whether he would screen candidates based on their legal views regarding Roe, Trump said he would not be asking potential nominees directly about their views on the case.
