“I think the single best choice that President Donald Trump could make to fill this vacancy is Senator Mike Lee. I think he would be extraordinary. About half of the nominees Republican presidents have put on the court have turned into train wrecks, have turned into liberal activists.
The reason why I think the best choice that President Trump could make is Mike Lee is because I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that Mike Lee would be faithful to the Constitution and Bill of Rights and that he’s not going to evolve and turn into a David Souter. He’s going to honor his commitment.”
