President Trump told "Fox & Friends" co-host Pete Hegseth that he thinks his nominee to the Supreme Court, Judge Amy Coney Barrett, will be a textualist.
"Mostly, I'm looking for somebody that can interpret the Constitution as written," he said during the exclusive one-on-one interview following the nomination, set to air Sunday at 6 a.m. ET. "We say it all the time and [Judge Amy Coney Barrett] is very strong on that."
Barrett said Saturday in accepting the nomination that she has the same judicial philosophy as the late Justice Antonin Scalia, which is to "apply the law as written."
