"I never at any point faltered and am extremely glad for him and the activity he is doing as a Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. The unnamed sources don't exist!"
For almost eight months, President Trump has boasted that appointing Neil M. Gorsuch to the Supreme Court ranks high among his signature achievements. "The president's nomination of Neil M. Gorsuch was among his first and most important accomplishments during his first year in office, and delivered on a major campaign promise", the White House spokesman Raj Shah said in a statement to The Post.
Gorsuch had said Trump's criticisms of a judge who had blocked the president's first travel ban were "demoralizing" and "disheartening". Richard Blumenthal of CT that he found the president's heated attacks on judges blocking implementation of his travel ban "disheartening" and "demoralizing". Though Gorsuch wrote a handwritten letter dated March 2 thanking Trump for the nomination, Trump did not see it until eight days later, The Post reported. He's new to government, and so he probably wasn't steeped in the long-running protocols that establish the relationships between [the Justice Department], FBI and White House.
It is unclear whether Trump's "explosion", as another administration official described it, truly put Gorsuch's nomination in jeopardy or whether the president was expressing his frustration aloud, as he often does.
"My young little girls were cheering the TV!" he included.
Korea must 'earn' way to talks
He said the US does not want war but "will use all necessary measures to defend itself against North Korean aggression". In October the American president dismissed his Secretary of State's push for talks with the North. "China is helping.
As a Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch has already swayed the Court further to the right, in rulings, in cases accepted, and in cases denied.
"The process obviously caused frustration, but that frustration was compounded by the fact that Gorsuch had sent him a personal letter that he never received", Short said.
But talk of rescinding Gorsuch's nomination is unhinged even if we only consider how it would have affected Trump personally.
At the time, Gorsuch was having courtesy meetings with senators, including Blumenthal.
The Senate later confirmed Gorsuch on a vote of 54 to 45. "You never know with these guys".
