President Donald Trump told Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) to 'go nuclear' in the case of gridlock by Democrats on Neil Gorsuch's confirmation to the Supreme Court. Trump suggested the Republicans invoke the nuclear option to prevent a filibuster by Democrats in an attempt to block the nomination.
