PALM BEACH, Florida (AP) — Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump says he’ll release a list of judges he’d nominate to the Supreme Court if elected president to ease concerns about his picks.
Trump has told a local gathering of Republicans in Palm Beach, Florida Sunday night he’s going to provide a list of five or 10 judges that he will personally guarantee to nominate when vacancies arise.
He says the move is intended to stave off concerns that he might pick judges who are too liberal. He says he’ll pick judges “everybody respects, likes and totally admires.”
Trump campaign representatives did not immediately respond to questions about when Trump would release the list.
The billionaire businessman is hosting the Palm Beach County Republican Party’s Lincoln Day dinner in a ballroom at his Mar-a-Lago club.
