President Trump is off to a rough start with the judiciary branch.

Trump has been very vocal, expressing discontent with the legal challenges to his executive order on immigration from the middle east.

Trump’s stern language has been met with criticism from the left and right, but also from his nominee to the Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch.

According to Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal, Gorsuch called President Trump’s tweets attacking federal judges “disheartening” and “demoralizing.”

“Behind closed doors, Judge Gorsuch expressed disappointment with President Trump’s attacks on the judiciary, but a Supreme Court Justice must prove that he has the courage and independence to stand up to a President in public. I asked Judge Gorsuch to make that statement publicly, and he declined,” Senator Blumenthal said.

“If he wants the American people to believe that he is truly independent, Judge Gorsuch must tell them in no uncertain terms that President Trump’s attacks are not just disappointing – they are abhorrent and destructive to our Constitutional system – and he must condemn them publicly.”

Just one week ago, Trump nominated Neil Gorsuch to fill the Supreme Court vacancy left by Antonin Scalia in 2016.
