(ReliableNews.org) – President Donald Trump took a lot of heat when he appointed Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. The judge had been accused of sexually assaulting a woman many years before and his confirmation hearing was reminiscent of Clarence Thomas’ in the early 1990s. Despite the allegations against him, Trump stood by his side. According to a new book, the former president isn’t sure he did the right thing.
According to author Michael Wolff, he interviewed Trump in the final days of his administration for a book entitled “Landslide.” The book, which was released on July 13, details an alleged conversation the two men had about Kavanaugh. The former president reportedly said the justice “hasn’t had the courage” needed to become great. Wolff says the 45th POTUS told him that he could have appointed many people, but he chose Kavanaugh. Trump allegedly asked, “Where would he be without me?”
Trump unloads on Brett Kavanaugh for his Supreme Court votes: "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." https://t.co/Y1AGAkYLMK

That conversation has not been confirmed by Trump. In fact, Wolff makes some other claims in the book that could be best described as outlandish. However, it is no secret that Conservatives are disappointed by some of the Supreme Court’s recent rulings. It wouldn’t be shocking if the former president was one of those who expected more from the six right-leaning justices.
