President Donald Trump boasted Tuesday night that he has appointed “more circuit judges than any new administration in the history of our country,” judges who “will interpret the Constitution as written.”

Trump also praised Neil Gorsuch, “a great new Supreme Court justice,” as he delivered his first State of the Union address before an audience that included Gorsuch and three other justices: Chief Justice John Roberts Jr., Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan. Gorsuch was stone-faced as Trump mentioned his name.
