"I never even wavered", Trump said of his decision to nominate Gorsuch.
President Donald Trump disputed a Washington Post story Tuesday alleging that he considered pulling his nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court after Gorsuch privately criticized Trump's attacks on the judiciary.
Gorsuch, right, smiles following a swearing in ceremony with President Trump. Had Trump followed his impulses, that easily could have become one of the wildest and most self-defeating moments of his young administration.
The story cites anonymous sources claiming that Trump was angered by Gorsuch's failure to thank him properly for the nomination and his private criticism in a meeting with a Democratic senator about Trump's tough rhetoric against federal judges.
"He is very proud of the accomplishment", spokesman Raj Shah said in a statement to The Post.

Richard Blumenthal of CT that he found the president's heated attacks on judges blocking implementation of his travel ban "disheartening" and "demoralizing". That should have been enough of a clue that this was all part of a political strategy, and according to the Post, advisers told Trump that Gorsuch needed to demonstrate his independence from the president to secure enough votes in the Senate. "I see daily their love of country and our Constitution, and know it is a tribute to you and your leadership for policy is always about personnel".
This person also said that Trump told aides he was concerned that Gorsuch wouldn't be "loyal", and that he was thinking of cutting the judge loose.
