The promised list is aimed at calming concerns from conservatives who are worried that if elected president, Trump would appoint justices who are not conservative enough, especially on issues like abortion. Trump said he has received help in compiling the list from the Heritage Foundation and has "already shown it to a lot of people." He said the list will have "between seven and 10 judges" and could be released within the next week.
Trump said there will be some litmus tests to get a spot on his list — for example, he only wants justices who are "pro-life" — but he was vague on the details.
"We're going to look at intellect, very important, like we want very, very smart people," Trump said. "We want conservatives on the Supreme Court."
