Trump Rips WaPo Report About Revoking Gorsuch Nomination

Gorsuch, before his confirmation, was rated as being to the right of Scalia.

The White House pushed back against The Post's report.

In an article featuring the always reliable "people with knowledge of the discussions", The Post reported Tuesday that Trump "angrily" vented to advisers after Gorsuch was critical of the president's criticism of the federal judiciary in private meetings with legislators.

President Donald Trump tweeted Tuesday that a recent report claiming he considered "rescinding" his nomination of Neil Gorsuch is "fake news". Richard Blumenthal and told him that Trump's attack on the judiciary were "disheartening" and "demoralizing," the Washington Post reported Monday.

Gorsuch's comments, on which he declined to elaborate publicly, were likely part of a bid to prove his autonomy from the White House.

Ron Bonjean, who helped guide Gorsuch through the confirmation process at the request of the White House, verified that those were the judge's words. Gorsuch "is really something very special", Trump told the National Rifle Association in April. On Twitter he accused Blumenthal (and thus Bonjean) of lying about what Gorsuch said, and attacked the senator for misrepresenting his Vietnam service years ago.

"Transgender" among list of words reportedly banned at the CDC
The words? " Diversity ", " entitlement ", "evidence-based", "fetus ", " science-based ", " transgender ", and " vulnerable ". At the CDC, several offices have responsibility for work that uses some of these words.

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".

Gorsuch had told Sen.

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.

The letter congratulated Trump "on such a great start" and praised the president's address to Congress as "magnificent". "My teenage daughters were cheering the TV!"

"The team you have assembled to assist me in the Senate is remarkable and inspiring", Gorsuch gushed. The president* throws a nutty over Gorsuch's towering ingratitude.
