President Trump said Monday he interviewed four potential candidates for Supreme Court, moving swiftly to choose a nominee as Democrats launch preemptive attacks against his eventual pick to succeed Justice Anthony Kennedy.
“During the morning, I interviewed and met with four potential justices of our great Supreme Court,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office as he met with the Dutch prime minister. “They are outstanding people. They are really incredible people in so many different ways, academically and every other way, and I had a very, very interesting morning.”
The president said he plans to meet with two or three more potential picks and will be making a decision “over the next few days.”
“I think the person that is chosen will be outstanding,” Trump said.
