U.S. President Donald Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court, Judge Neil Gorsuch, has called the president’s sharp criticism of the judiciary “demoralizing” and “disheartening.”

Gorsuch made his comments while meeting privately Wednesday with Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal. Gorsuch’s remarks were conveyed publicly by Senator Blumenthal. The essence of Gorsuch’s remarks was confirmed by the Supreme Court nominee’s office.

President Trump reacted to Gorsuch’s remarks Thursday on Twitter by apparently questioning the integrity of Senator Blumenthal.
