Donald Trump indicated in an interview on Fox News Channel's "Hannity" on Wednesday that his Supreme Court nominations may not be limited to the 11 names on the list he released earlier in the day – but they will all share the same philosophy.

Trump compiled the conservative judges on the list with help from The Federalist Society, Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions and "others," Trump said. The Heritage Foundation also looked over the list, as did members of the U.S. Senate, he said.

"I thought what I would do is put this forward, and this would be the list that I would either choose from or pick people very close in terms of the spirit and the meaning of what they represent," Trump told host Sean Hannity.

Trump said he wants people with "high intellect" and who are pro-life.

The presumptive GOP nominee said he knows some of his conservative supporters wanted to know exactly what kind of judges he would appoint, and that's why he released the list.

"Outside of the defense of our country, perhaps the single most important thing the next president is going to have to do is pick Supreme Court justices," he said.
