Former President Trump said Monday that he's "very disappointed" with recent votes by Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett to uphold ObamaCare. 

Trump nominated Kavanaugh and Coney Barrett to the high court during his presidency and maintained unwavering support for Kavanaugh during a bitterly contested partisan confirmation battle. 

"I fought very hard for them," Trump told Just the News' "Water Cooler" in an exclusive interview on Real America's Voice. "But I was very disappointed with a number of their rulings."  

The court's nine justices voted 7-2 on June 17 to uphold the health care law in a case brought by Republican governors challenging the constitutionality of the law's individual mandate in light of the 2017 elimination of the plan's individual penalties for not purchasing insurance.

Trump also told show host David Brody that he's not indulging second thoughts about having nominated the conservative justices to the court.  

"Second guessing does no good," he said. "But I was disappointed with a number of rulings that they made."
