Trump attacks on judges 'demoralising': Supreme Court nominee Gorsuch
Gorsuch made his comments while meeting Wednesday with Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal, according to spokesman Ron Bonjean, a Republican strategist hired by the White House to help guide Gorsuch's nomination through the U.S. Senate.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is weighing the appeal of Trump's executive order on immigration, including a temporary travel ban on people from seven Muslim-majority countries.
"Courts seem to be so political and it would be so great for our justice system if they would be able to read a statement and do what is right", the president said. Trump tweeted. "What is our country coming to when a judge can halt a Homeland Security travel ban and anyone, even with bad intentions, can come into USA?" A federal appeals court in San Francisco has since heard arguments over the ban and is expected to decide in coming days on the question of whether US District Judge James Robart acted properly in temporarily halting enforcement of Mr Trump's ban.
The "major lie" Trump was referring to dates back to 2010 when he was forced to acknowledge that he had served "during" the Vietnam War rather than "in" it as he had previously claimed several times.
Collins was full of praise after meeting with Neil Gorsuch, adding that while she hadn't asked him to reiterate his concerns about Trump's attacks on the judiciary, "I am confident that Judge Gorsuch could be, will be, an independent judge". Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, recounted other conversations in which Gorsuch, now a federal appeals court judge, expressed concerns about Trump's criticism of the judiciary.
The OA Is Coming Back for a Second Season
Netflix has renewed its latest bingeable thriller, The OA, for Season 2 - and it has the cryptic teaser trailer to prove it. At least now you have time before the second series returns.
Trump tweeted Thursday morning. That's why Trump's attacks on the judiciary are so risky.
Trump's complaints about what Blumenthal said Gorsuch said came even as other Democrats offered their own complaints about Gorsuch's reported comments, albeit for totally different reasons. As President Donald Trump's nominee for the Supreme Court, should he be? From what we know of his career, my guess is that during confirmation hearings, Gorsuch will be asked - and may often directly answer - some very hard questions about his views on Trump and what he represents.
Mr Trump also promised to work on combating drug abuse and said there should be resources to deal with a "mental health crisis".
He said Gorsuch was "non-committal" about publicly criticizing the attacks, "and that's one reason why I remain deeply concerned about this nomination". But she appeared to say that he referred to any criticism of judges' ethics, not Trump's recent comments specifically.
