  • Trump considered pulling Gorsuch's nomination after personal criticism

"A story in the @washingtonpost that I was close to "rescinding" the nomination of Justice Gorsuch prior to confirmation is FAKE NEWS".

The president anxious that Gorsuch would not be "loyal", one of the people said, and told aides that he was tempted to pull Gorsuch's nomination - and that he knew plenty of other judges who would want the job.

This person also said that Trump told aides he was concerned that Gorsuch wouldn't be "loyal", and that he was thinking of cutting the judge loose.

Trump was especially upset by what he viewed as Gorsuch's insufficient gratitude for a lifetime appointment to the nation's highest court, White House officials said.

Despite a White House statement in The Washington Post denying its story, President Trump Tuesday morning blasted the newspaper's account that he was considering revoking his nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court after the now-confirmed Supreme Court Justice made remarks critical of Trump.

Trump had launched into a series of attacks against federal judges who had ruled to stop his travel ban on Muslim-majority countries during Gorsuch's confirmation process, leaving the Supreme Court nominee to field questions from senators about the comments. "He is very proud of the accomplishment".
