(Reuters) - Highlights of the day for U.S. President Donald Trump's administration on Monday:

SUPREME COURT NOMINEE

Democratic Senator Mark Warner announces opposition to Trump's Supreme Court nominee, meaning Democrats potentially have the votes needed to block a U.S. Senate confirmation vote to give Neil Gorsuch the lifetime job.

KUSHNER IN IRAQ

Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, flies into Iraq with the top U.S. military officer to get a first-hand assessment of the battle against Islamic State from U.S. commanders on the ground and to meet Iraqi officials.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY STANDARDS

A coalition of U.S. states and municipalities begins legal action against the Trump administration, accusing it of violating federal law by delaying energy efficiency standards for several consumer and commercial products.
