President Donald Trump expressed his feelings, which are shared by many, about the unjust way some federal judges are dispensing justice from the bench. He was speaking mainly about Judge James Robart who singlehandedly stopped Trump’s executive immigration order. Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch reacted negatively to Trump’s comments.
President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee said Wednesday that comments Trump made about the federal appeals court deliberating his travel ban were “disheartening and demoralizing,” Fox News has learned.
A source on the president’s Supreme Court nomination team told Fox that Judge Neil Gorsuch made the remark in a meeting with Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn.
Blumenthal told reporters after the meeting that Gorsuch had “expressed to me that he is disheartened by the demoralizing and abhorrent comments by president trump about the judiciary.”
Earlier Wednesday, Trump slammed the Ninth Cicuit Court of Appeals, which is currently deliberating his executive order temporarily suspending the country’s refugee program and banning travel for citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries.
