Neil Gorsuch, Donald Trump’s choice for the vacant seat on the Supreme Court, on Wednesday called that Trump’s attacks on the judge who halted his travel ban “disheartening” and “demoralizing.”

A spokesman for Gorsuch confirmed the statement, first reported by CNN, which said Gorsuch told Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) he found Trump’s tweet about Federal Judge James Robart “disheartening” and “demoralizing” while the two met Wednesday afternoon.

On Saturday, Trump tweeted critiquing the opinion of the “so-called judge” saying that the ruling that halted his executive order was “ridiculous and will be overturned.”

Federal Judge James Robart, appointed by former President George W. Bush and approved by a 99-0 Senate vote in 2004, issued an immediate nationwide restraining order against Trump’s action last week, which had cut off citizens from seven Muslim-majority nations from entering the U.S.
