WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump says that his pick for Supreme Court justice will be someone "Christians will love."

In an interview with CBN News, the president said he's been vetting candidates from his original list of potential judges to fill the seat vacant since the sudden death of Justice Antonin Scalia last February.

Trump says that that "Evangelicals, Christians will love my pick and we'll be represented very, very fairly."

Trump has said he will name his choice for the nation's highest court on Thursday.
