WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House is declining to name the four candidates who interviewed Monday with President Donald Trump for the Supreme Court vacancy.
Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders says Trump is seeking a candidate who has "right intellect" and the "right temperament" and will uphold the U.S. Constitution.
Sanders wouldn't provide the names of the candidates who met with Trump or the two to three candidates expected to meet with the president later this week. She is reiterating that Trump does not intend to ask any of the candidates for their views on Roe v. Wade, the 1973 case that affirmed women's right to abortion.
Trump says he will announce his choice to succeed retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy on July 9.
