A Texas judge identified by Donald Trump on Wednesday as one of 11 people he would consider nominating to the US Supreme Court has repeatedly mocked the presumptive Republican presidential nominee on social media.


Texas Supreme Court Justice Don Willett last month likened Trump to "Star Wars" villain Darth Vader in a Twitter post.


"'We'll rebuild the Death Star. It'll be amazing, believe me. And the rebels will pay for it.' -Darth Trump," Willett tweeted last month with a photo of the Death Star, the giant spherical spaceship built to carry a planet-destroying weapon in the first "Star Wars" movie.


Willett also linked Trump to liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.


"Can't wait till Trump rips off his face Mission Impossible-style & reveals a laughing Ruth Bader Ginsburg," Willett posted on Twitter last August.


Last June he mocked Trump's judgment on picking a nominee to the high court.
