President Trump told Fox’s Maria Bartiromo in an interview airing Sunday that Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement showed the retiring judge has “confidence” that the president will make the right choice to replace him.

“It really is a retirement of a great gentleman,” Trump said. “He’s a fine, fine gentleman.”

The president promised to choose an “outstanding” justice to replace Kennedy.

“I said [to Kennedy], ‘I’ll do it in your honor,'” Trump added. “I was very honored that he did this during my term, which means he had confidence in me to do the right thing.”
