Trump Slams Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh

Clearly, former President Donald Trump now regrets having nominated Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court.


Former President Donald Trump, in a book out Tuesday by Michael Wolff, says he is ‘very disappointed’ in votes by Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, his own hard-won nominee, and that he ‘hasn’t had the courage you need to be a great justice,'” according to Axios.

“‘There were so many others I could have appointed, and everyone wanted me to,’ Trump told Wolff in an interview for the cheekily titled “Landslide.”

Trump stated, “‘Where would he be without me? I saved his life. He wouldn’t even be in a law firm. Who would have had him? Nobody. Totally disgraced. Only I saved him.’… [emphasis added]

“Wolff writes that Trump feels betrayed by all three justices he put on the court, including Neil Gorsuch and Amy Coney Barrett, but ‘reserved particular bile for Kavanaugh.’ [emphasis added]

“Recalling the brutal confirmation fight, Trump said: ‘Practically every senator called me … and said, ‘Cut him loose, sir, cut him loose. He’s killing us, Kavanaugh.’ … I said, ‘I can’t do that.’

“‘I had plenty of time to pick somebody else,’ Trump continued. ‘I went through that thing and fought like hell for Kavanaugh — and I saved his life, and I saved his career. At great expense to myself … okay? I fought for that guy and kept him.’…

“‘I can’t even believe what’s happening. I’m very disappointed in Kavanaugh. I just told you something I haven’t told a lot of people. In retrospect, he just hasn’t had the courage you need to be a great justice. I’m basing this on more than just the election.'” [emphasis added]
