President Donald Trump said on Monday that he spoke with several candidates on his short list of candidates for the Supreme Court, and may meet one of them in Miami before naming his final choice at the end of the week.

Before leaving the White House for Ohio, Trump told reporters that he had spoken with some of the candidates and planned to meet a few of them and confirmed that his list has narrowed to five women.
