“I listened to a bunch of stuff last night on television that was disgraceful,” Mr. Trump said. “I think it’s sad. I think it’s a sad day. I think our security is at risk today.”
If the U.S. does not win this case as it so obviously should, we can never have the security and safety to which we are entitled. Politics!Tweet by @realDonaldTrump
That "bunch of stuff" was the oral argument before a panel of the United States Court of Appeals in the State of Washington's lawsuit seeking to void the Executive Order suppressing immigration from seven mideast countries.
Trump's renewed attacks on the courts led Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch to privately describe the statements as "disheartening and demoralizing". Majority Leader Mitch McConnell described the insults as "self destructive".
Gorsuch will face challenging questioning as he is pressed by Democrat sto demonstrate that he has the spine to stand up against his benefactor who gave him the judge the opportunity of a lifetime.
