President Donald Trump reacted to Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy’s sudden retirement on Wednesday and revealed he will begin to search for a replacement “immediately.”

“He is a man that I have known for a long time and a man that I have respected for a long time,” Trump said. “He’s been a great justice of the Supreme Court.”

He added, "We will begin our search for a new justice of the United States Supreme Court. That will begin immediately."
