Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his resignation from the nation's highest court Wednesday, sparking immediate reaction from politicians, journalists and commentators across the political spectrum.
Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy has announced he will retire. And I think you see the kind of quality that we're looking at when you look at that list.
Willett previously served on the Texas Supreme Court.
"It will be somebody from that list", Trump said, speaking at a press conference with Portuguese President Rebelo de Sousa.
"His work has made an impressive contribution to the development of the law in many fields, and he will surely be remembered as one of the most important justices in the history of the court", added conservative Justice Samuel Alito.

The travel ban was among the court's biggest cases this term and the latest in a string of 5-4 decisions in which the conservative side of the court, bolstered by the addition of Gorsuch a year ago, prevailed.
