The President says he's confident that his nominee for the Supreme Court will get swift approval by the Senate.

FOX's Jon Decker has more from the White House:

During a meeting with black leaders for Black History Month, the President said he believed that Judge Neil Gorsuch is the perfect choice to fill the vacant seat on the U.S. Supreme Court:

(President Trump) "It was such a good launch. We have a fantastic, hopefully a new justice of the Supreme Court and hopefully will be approved very quickly."

Gorsuch is likely to face intense opposition from Liberal interest groups and some Senate Democrats say they will mount a filibuster to block his nomination.

At the White House, Jon Decker, FOX News.
