Donald Trump hesitant to consider nominating Ted Cruz to Supreme Court

Donald Trump was recently asked if he would consider nominating Ted Cruz to fill the vacancy in the Supreme Court, left by the passing of Justice Antonin Scalia. Trump commented that Ted Cruz is “certainly a smart guy,” but may not have the right temperament to be a successful nominee. Trump stated that in order to be a justice of any kind, one must be a very smart and rational person, and eluded that Cruz may not fill that description.
