UPDATE:

On Thursday morning, President Trump tweeted his response to the reported conversation between Gorsuch and Blumenthal.


President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, said that comments Trump made about the federal appeals court deliberating his travel ban were "disheartening and demoralizing," John Roberts reported on "Special Report" tonight.

Gorsuch reportedly commented on Trump's verbal attacks on members of the judiciary during a conversation with Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) on Wednesday.

Blumenthal told reporters after the meeting that Gorsuch had "expressed to me that he is disheartened by the demoralizing and abhorrent comments by President Trump about the judiciary."

Earlier Wednesday, Trump slammed the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which is currently deliberating his executive order suspending the refugee program and banning travel to the U.S. for citizens of 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's right," the president said in an address to a group of police chiefs and sheriffs. "And that has to do with the security of our country, which is so important."
