President Trump says he’s “not 100 percent” about who his nominee for the Supreme Court will be, but that evangelicals and Christians will be represented fairly by the person he chooses.

“I think I know, but I’m not 100%. I can’t guarantee it. We’re doing some further checking. The vetting, they call it the vetting process and the vetting process is very strong,” Mr. Trump told Christian Broadcasting Network’s “The Brody File.”

He is expected to formally announce who he wants to fill the seat next Thursday, which has been vacant for nearly a year following the death of Justice Antonin Scalia last February.

Mr. Trump is reportedly choosing between three judges: Judge William Pryor of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Judge Neil Gorsuch of the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals and Judge Thomas Hardiman of the Third U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

“I think the person I pick will be big, big I think people are going to love it. I think evangelicals, Christians will love my pick. And will be represented very fairly,” said Mr. Trump.
