Trump, in a speech at the CIA headquarters today, did not hold back against the media.

He also called out TIME's Zeke Miller for incorrectly stating in a pool report that a bust of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was removed from the Oval Office:

They said - it was very interesting - but, 'Donald Trump took down the bust, the statue, of Dr. Martin Luther King.' And it was right there. But there was a cameraman that was in front of it.
So Zeke [Miller], Zeke, from Time Magazine writes this story about how I took down - I would never do that because I have great respect for Dr. Martin Luther King.
But this is how dishonest the media is. Now - big story! The retraction was like where? Was it a line or do they even bother putting it in?

Miller was looking for differences in the newly decorated Oval Office when he made the mistake. He tells us he "rushed" to fix the pool report, followed by taking to Twitter to admit his mistake and apologize several times. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer acknowledged and accepted his apology, and Tweeted out a photo of the bust in question.

President Trump said Saturday he expects to announce a nominee for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's vacant Supreme Court seat “next week” and that the person will “most likely" be a woman.

What he's saying: "If somebody were to ask me now, I would say that a woman would be in first place, yes. The choice of a woman, I would say, would certainly be appropriate," the president told pool reporters.

Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said in a statement Saturday she believes whoever is elected in the 2020 presidential race should pick the nominee to fill Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's Supreme Court seat.

Why it matters: Collins will be key in how the nomination process plays out. As one of the most centrist Senate Republicans, whether or not the Senate confirms Trump's SCOTUS nominee could hinge on her vote.
