President Donald Trump tweeted Tuesday that a recent report claiming he considered "rescinding" his nomination of Neil Gorsuch is "fake news."

The Washington Post reported Monday that "earlier this year, Trump talked about rescinding Gorsuch's nomination" to the Supreme Court after Gorsuch criticized "the president's escalating attacks on the federal judiciary in private meetings with legislators," according to an unnamed source.

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.

Gorsuch declined the Post's request for comment, but White House spokesman Raj Shah did provide a statement.

"The president's nomination of Neil M. Gorsuch was among his first and most important accomplishments during his first year in office, and delivered on a major campaign promise," he said in a statement. "At no point did the president consider withdrawing Justice Gorsuch's nomination. He is very proud of the accomplishment."
