Trump Reportedly Thought About Pulling Gorsuch's Nomination. Here's Why

21 December, 2017, 01:14 | Author: Katrina Soto
  • Trump was reportedly upset by comments Gorsuch made defending the judiciary

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

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.

Trump, however, signaled his approval of Gorsuch.

White House officials publicly denied that Gorsuch's nomination was in jeopardy, and The Post acknowledged that Trump could have just been venting frustration without seriously considering pulling the nomination.

Uber is a taxi service, European court says
It is likely to restrict the company from expanding services that allowed non-professional drivers to offer rides to clients. The decision in Luxembourg, after a challenge brought by taxi drivers in Barcelona, will apply across the whole of the EU.

"He is very proud of the accomplishment", spokesman Raj Shah said in a statement to The Post.

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

The report was published in the Washington Post Monday night, and said Trump discussed rescinding Gorsuch's nomination after he was critical of Trump and his verbal attacks on the federal judiciary. Trump claimed that they simply do not exist. "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". The story suggested that Trump was extremely angry with Gorsuch because the judge wasn't "loyal" enough for his taste, and also because Gorsuch critiqued the president for his negative past comments about the federal judiciary.

Anyone who sat through the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch came away with a distinct impression that, as far as Mr. Justice Gorsuch was concerned, there were two species of American citizen: Himself, and those who were stuck to his shoe on a hot summer's day.
