Donald Trump Slams Washington Post Judge Gorsuch Story as 'Fake News'

Donald Trump Slams Washington Post Judge Gorsuch Story as 'Fake News'

But talk of rescinding Gorsuch's nomination is unhinged even if we only consider how it would have affected Trump personally.

"I never even wavered", Trump said of his decision to nominate Gorsuch.

President Donald Trump tweeted on Tuesday that a report about how he nearly rescinded Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch's nomination was "fake news". "The unnamed sources don't exist!"

For instance, no one gave Trump credit for opting not to withdraw his Supreme Court pick's nomination after the judge mildly criticized his attacks on the judiciary. But it quickly became apparent that Trump had not been informed or bought into the strategy. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), telling the senator he found Trump's repeated attacks on the federal judiciary "disheartening" and "demoralizing". But his fears were assuaged after White House legislative affairs director Marc Short found a personal note Gorsuch had written to Trump but that Trump hadn't received.

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.

Gorsuch declined the Post's request for comment, but White House spokesman Raj Shah did provide a statement.

As might be expected, Trump blasted The Washington Post report as "FAKE NEWS" on Twitter.

The Post described a meeting with top Republican leaders in which it said Trump assailed Gorsuch and said, "He's probably going to end up being a liberal like the rest of them". "I see daily their love of country and our Constitution, and know it is a tribute to you and your leadership for policy is always about personnel".

Following reports of Gorsuch's comments, The Post said, citing a source with knowledge of the discussions, Trump spoke about rescinding his nomination and expressed worry that he would not be "loyal".
