Trump says launches search to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Kennedy

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he was launching an immediate search for someone to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, whom he hailed as a spectacular man with great vision and heart.

Speaking to reporters during an Oval Office meeting with Portuguese President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, Trump said he would draw from a list of 25 potential court candidates that his campaign had assembled during his presidential run.

(Corrects second paragraph to show list is 25, not 45, potential candidates.)
