President Donald Trump stated what political observers already knew, that he prevailed in the uphill battle to get Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch confirmed, and was able to accomplish the task "in the first 100 days."

Trump made the remarks in the White House Rose Garden following Gorsuch's second swearing-in ceremony of the day, Politico reported.

"I've always heard that the most important thing that a president of the United States does is appoint people, hopefully great people like this appointment, to the United States Supreme Court, And, I can say, this is a great honor," Trump said.

"And, I got it done in the first 100 days. You think that's easy?" he added, as those in attendance laughed.

Gorsuch took the oath the first time in a private ceremony, followed by the public Rose Garden event that included family and supporters. The second swearing in was televised.

Trump called Gorsuch "a man of great and unquestioned integrity," "a man of unmatched qualifications" and "a man who is deeply faithful to the Constitution of the United States." He also referenced Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for "all that he did to make this achievement possible."

McConnell oversaw the Senate as it used the "nuclear option" to make a change in rules allowing for Gorsuch's confirmation based on a majority vote rather than by 60. The Senate confirmed Gorsuch Friday.
