WASHINGTON – Neil Gorsuch on Monday became the 101st associate justice of the Supreme Court and President Trump’s first high court appointment.

Justice Anthony Kennedy administered the judicial oath to Gorsuch in White House Rose Garden, which was soaked in sun shortly after 11 a.m. Hours earlier, Chief Justice John Roberts administered the constitutional oath in a private ceremony in the justices' conference room at the court.

Kennedy said the oath Gorsuch took "reminds us that we as a people are bound together, that we as a people find our self definition, our respect, our heritage and our destiny in the Constitution."
