Trump: Vetting 5 SCOTUS justice candidates

United States President Donald Trump revealed his administration is currently in the process of vetting five candidates to take late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's place on the bench.

Trump confirmed he will have his decision on Friday or Saturday and that the next justice will definitely be a woman. "It will be a brilliant person," he added.

On Friday, Justice Ginsburg, an appointee of former President Bill Clinton, lost her battle with pancreatic cancer leaving a vacancy for the incumbent head of state to appoint a conservative judge, despite the Democrats pushing for the decision to be made after the November general election.
