President Trump has yet to make a final decision on his pick to replace outgoing Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, but says he is “very close.”
The president made the remarks before boarding Air Force One in New Jersey Sunday, saying he is considering four candidates and can’t go wrong with any of them.
He says he plans on making his decision within the next 24-hours.
“I’m getting very close to making a final decision. And I believe this person will do a great job. But I’m very close to making a decision. I’ve not made it official yet, obviously. Have not made it final, but we’re very close to making a decision.”
President Trump spent the weekend discussing his options with other officials and is expected to announce his pick Monday night.
