Donald Trump says he has Supreme Court nominees at the ready to be nominated to the seat left behind by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, reports CBS News.

Trump said his list would include "anywhere from five to 10 judges." and he "will guarantee it personally, like we do in the world of business, which we don't like to do too often."

He then said, "I will guarantee it that those are going to be the first judges that I put up for nomination if I win. And that should solve that problem."

Trump named two potential nominees in a February statement, where he said Judge
William Pryor and Judge Diane Sykes "would best represent the conservative values we need to protect."  

Pryor is a federal judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. He was the Attorney General in Alabama from 1997 to 2004.

Sykes is a U.S. Court of Appeals judge who sits on the Seventh Circuit.

Both justices have weighed in on issues such as voter ID laws and religious objectors to birth control, according to ThinkProgress.

Trump spoke about his list at Mar-A-Lago in in Palm Beach County, Florida, according to Florida's Sun-Sentinel.

At the event he said, "You're going to love me as president. You're going to be proud of me as president. I'm going to be the most presidential president this country has ever had, except for Honest Abe Lincoln."
