President Trump cast doubt in a Monday interview on Fox News that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg ' s dying wish was that her replacement on the "I don't know that she said that, or was that written out by Adam Schiff , Schumer and Pelosi ?" Trump said Monday during an interview on "Fox & Friends."

Trump ridiculed Ginsburg's alleged final request, claiming without evidence Monday morning on Fox News that he believes congressional Democrats likely penned the statement.

"I don't know if she said that or that was written out by Adam Schiff and Schumer and Pelosi, I'd be more inclined to the second you don't know, it came out of the wind, it sounds so beautiful. But that sounds like a Schumer deal or maybe Pelosi or shifty Schiff, I mean that came out of the wind. Let's see, maybe she did [say that], maybe she didn't, the bottom line is we won the election and we have an obligation to do what's right and act as quickly as possible," Trump said.

Trump's claim that Ginsburg's statement was likely faked prompted Fox & Friends host Ainsley Earhardt to reply, "well it was reported." Earhardt highlighted how many Democratic critics of Trump are citing "her dying wish was to have her choose her successor."

"Look, we won the election and elections have consequences, it's called 'you pick people from the Supreme Court,'" Trump added.

Trump went on to say one primary reason he wants to install a new Supreme Court nomination of his choosing is there may be numerous legal battles after Election Day.

The president said he believes many Republican senators in battleground states like Colorado's Cory Gardner, and Iowa's Joni Ernst, will be helped—and not hurt—by voting to fill Ginsburg's vacant seat before November 3.

"I think it's going to help Cory Gardner, who is a great guy by the way, he's very loyal to the party and loves his state," Trump said.

In the same interview, Trump hinted that 11th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Barbara Lagoa may be leading his list of five potential female Supreme Court nominees, particularly due to her being a Florida native.

Trump said his number one priority in selecting a Supreme Court nominee to replace the late Justice Ginsburg is ensuring they take the bench "pretty young." The president said almost all of his potential nominees are "young people, very young," which he said would anger Democrats given the lifetime appointment of Supreme Court justices. Although Trump declined to tip his hat in favor of any specific nominee, he acknowledged that selecting a judge from Florida like Lagoa could help him on Election Day.

Trump has previously floated several potential nominee names including Lagoa alongside Amy Coney Barrett, 48, an Indiana native, who he nominated to the Seventh Circuit court in 2017. Trump told Fox & Friends Monday that he will officially put forth his SCOTUS nomination on "Friday or Saturday," because he thinks it's respectful to wait on the conclusion of Ginsburg's funeral services.

The president then addressed Lagoa potentially leading the pack of nominees: "She's excellent, she's Hispanic, she's a terrific woman from everything I know, I don't know her," Trump told Fox & Friends. "Florida, we love Florida. So she's got a lot of things going—she's very smart, they're all very smart."

Fox & Friends hosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade pressed Trump on whether Lagoa may get nominated due to Florida's political importance in the upcoming November presidential election.

"Judge Lagoa, who you are apparently considering, she is 52, an appeals judge in the 11th Circuit from Miami and she's the daughter of Cuban exiles and would be the second Latina on the Supreme Court ... a lot of people who surround you and are perhaps trying to bend your ear. Not only is she a brilliant jurist, she has an Ivy League education and things like that, but she's from Florida. Given all things being equal, and all five women all are of equal standing with the law, some might say, 'well, she's from Florida, Trump needs to win Florida on Election Day, so maybe she gets the nod?'" Doocy said.

"Probably [politics] automatically is a factor even if you're not wanting to do that it becomes a little automatic...Michigan, Indiana are also represented very well," Trump replied.

Fact check: 'Kingdom of God' comment by SCOTUS contender Amy Coney Barrett is missing context in meme .
A 2006 remark about the "Kingdom of God" is missing context in a meme that also falsely attributes views on ending separation of church and state. The widely cited reference to Barrett encouraging a “Kingdom of God” is taken out of context. Fact check: No guarantee Obama would've replaced Ginsburg with a progressive justice Amy Coney Barrett’s religious and judicial views Barrett is a conservative and a favorite among the religious right. Trump appointed Barrett to a be a federal appeals court judge in 2017, and she has since ruled in over 100 cases.
