In what some see as a gesture to unify the Republican Party before this summer's convention, Donald Trump has released his list of potential Supreme Court nominees to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia.

FOX's Gurnal Scott has the story:

Donald Trump's 'short list' of nominees are those he plans to vet to fill the spot of Justice Antonin Scalia, who died in February. The list includes eight men and three women that he characterizes as people who are respected, liked and admired.

It also fulfills a promise he made in March to put out the list of potential justices. Trump says the hope is to ease concerns about his conservative credentials ahead of the November election as the 'presumptive nominee', he continues his efforts to unify the Republican Party behind his candidacy.
