( – Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) told at the March for Life on Friday that it "is imperative" that President Donald Trump follow through on his promise to nominate a pro-life justice to the U.S. Supreme Court and is convinced Trump will do so. asked Meadows, “As a candidate, President Trump promised to nominate ‘pro-life justices to the U.S. Supreme Court.’ How crucial is it that Trump follow through on that promise?”

"It's imperative,” Meadows replied, adding, “he will.”

“Next week, we'll have a strong pro-life candidate for the Supreme Court being nominated, and I think it'll make all of us happy and proud,” Meadows said. 

Meadows said that President Trump has shown “a real concern for the life of unborn” in his actions on pro-life policy issues.

"Without a doubt, the Mexico city policy and being able to not only reinstitute it but add language like none before shows a real concern for the life of the unborn,” Meadows said, “so I'm not only applauding him but very thankful that he has followed through on campaign promises.”

As previously reported, President Trump reinstated the Mexico City policy during his first days in office, which blocks taxpayer funds to non-governmental organizations that perform or promote abortion overseas.

He added that “to have Vice President Pence here” at the March for Life “wouldn't have happened without the president encouraging him to do that, so it's a great day for America and a great day for the pro-life movement."

Vice President Mike Pence was the first vice president to attend the March for Life.

Meadows said that those gathered at the March for Life should “continue to put pressure on their congressmen and senators” on the pro-life issue, saying, “it will make all the difference, and so that’s what we have to do is advance it in the halls of Congress.”

Trump announced Monday morning that he has chosen a nominee to fill the vacant Supreme Court seat and will reveal his nominee Tuesday.
