Trump says he must pick a Supreme Court justice who will serve for '45 years'

During a rally in Fargo, North Dakota, on Wednesday night, President Trump said he wants to choose a Supreme Court justice to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy "that's going to be there for 40 years, 45 years."

Kennedy is a "very special guy," Trump added, and he revealed he feels "very honored" that Kennedy is retiring now because it means he "felt confident in me." The next justice must be "a great one," he said, before imploring the crowd to "elect more Republicans."

It wouldn't be a Trump rally without the president insulting people, and he called Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.), the 10-term congressman who lost the Democratic primary to newcomer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Tuesday night, a "slovenly man" who "got his ass kicked." As for "the elite," they are "stone-cold losers," and his supporters have better houses and larger brains. "We're the elite, you're the elite," he said. "We are the super elite." Although Trump went low, he ended his rally high, telling the crowd, "We will make America loving again. Loving. Loving."
