During a call on Monday with talk show host Michael Savage, Trump said it was “pretty unusual” that Scalia was found dead with a pillow over his head on Saturday. 

“Donald, I need to come back to the topic we’ve all been screaming about here, which is Scalia, was he murdered?” Savage asked Trump. “I know it’s pretty brutal to say that, and I’m not wanting to drag you into this, but this is going to be bigger and bigger and bigger."

“I went on air and said we need the equivalent of a Warren Commission, we need an immediate autopsy before the body is disposed of. What do you think of that?” Savage continued. 

“I just landed and I’m hearing it’s a big topic,” Trump responded. “But they say they found a pillow on his face, which is a pretty unusual place to find a pillow."

“I can’t tell you — I can’t give you an answer,” Trump added.   

Scalia, who was 79, died unexpectedly Saturday during a hunting trip in Texas.
