President Trump Says He Will Choose One of These People to Replace Justice Kennedy

When Trump was running for president he said that we would get tired of winning, but that is hardly the case. Earlier this week, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement, which would open a place on the bench for another conservative judge, and Trump has a long list of potentials.

Here is more from Buzzfeed:

President Donald Trump is set to act quickly to name a nominee to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the US Supreme Court, now that Kennedy’s announced he’s stepping down at the end of July.

Trump made the unusual move of sharing a list of high court contenders during the 2016 campaign, and he has added to that list since he took office. The White House has said Trump will select the next Supreme Court nominee from the 25 names announced to date — giving both conservatives and liberals a head start in preparing for the upcoming confirmation fight.

Speaking to reporters in the Oval Office on Wednesday shortly after Kennedy announced his retirement, Trump said the replacement process would “begin immediately,” and confirmed that he still planned to choose a nominee from his current list.

“Hopefully we will pick someone who is just as outstanding,” Trump said of Kennedy.
