President Donald J. Trump Congratulates Judge Neil M. Gorsuch on his Historic Confirmation

The United States Senate today voted to confirm Judge Neil M. Gorsuch as the next Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. Judge Gorsuch replaces the late Justice Antonin Scalia. President Donald J. Trump released the following statement on Judge Gorsuch’s confirmation:

“It is a great honor to announce the historic confirmation of Judge Neil M. Gorsuch as Associate Justice to the Supreme Court of the United States. Judge Gorsuch’s confirmation process was one of the most transparent and accessible in history, and his judicial temperament, exceptional intellect, unparalleled integrity, and record of independence makes him the perfect choice to serve on the Nation’s highest court. As a deep believer in the rule of law, Judge Gorsuch will serve the American people with distinction as he continues to faithfully and vigorously defend our Constitution.

“I would also like to thank Justice Scalia and his wife Maureen for their immeasurable service to this country. Justice Scalia’s legacy of fidelity to our laws and our Constitution will never be forgotten.”

Judge Gorsuch will be sworn into office on Monday, April 10, 2017, in two ceremonies. The Chief Justice of the United States will administer the first oath of office in a private ceremony at 9:00 a.m. at the Supreme Court. At 11:00 a.m., Justice Anthony M. Kennedy will administer the second oath of office in a public ceremony at the White House. Further guidance will be provided.
