Donald Trump: Supreme Court Pick Next Week; ‘Most Likely’ a Woman
President Donald Trump on Saturday said his nomination to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court would likely be announced next week.
“I think the choice will be next week,” he told reporters as he left the White House on Saturday for a campaign trip to North Carolina.
When asked if he would choose a woman to replace Ginsburg, after she died on Friday, Trump replied, that it was “most likely.”
“I could see most likely it would be a woman,” he said. “Yeah… I would say that a woman would be in first place, the choice of a woman would certainly be appropriate.”
The president reminded reporters that he had a shortlist of potential nominees.
“I’ve gotten to know many of them. From a legal standpoint, from a sophisticated understanding of the law, from a constitutional standpoint, I think it’s the greatest list ever assembled,” he said.
When asked about Judge Amy Coney Barrett, Trump noted that she was “highly respected.”
He was also asked about Judge Barbara Lagoa, a judge in Florida.
