President Trump‘s Supreme Court nominee has privately expressed his dismay with some of the president’s recent tweets about the judiciary.

In response to the judge who temporarily blocked the travel ban, Trump tweeted out the following:

Naturally, a lot of people wanted to hear Gorsuch’s opinion on all this, and Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal told reporters today that the SCOTUS nominee did, in fact, weigh in:

He said very specifically that they were demoralizing and disheartening and he characterized them very specifically that way. I said they were more than disheartening and I said to him that he has an obligation to make his views clear to the American people, so they understand how abhorrent or unacceptable President Trump’s attacks on the judiciary are.

A CNN report says a spokesman for Gorsuch has confirmed that he did express his concern about Trump’s “so-called judge’ tweet.
