Kavanaugh accusations ‘all false to me,’ but I could change my mind

  • White House sees no problem with second Kavanaugh accuser testifying before Senate panel

Nineteen women have claimed that Trump had extramarital affairs with them or accused him of sexual misconduct.

"I never sexual assaulted anyone", he said.

Blasey Ford, who accuses Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her at a party when they were both teenagers, has agreed to testify Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, followed by Kavanaugh. So when I see it, I view it differently than somebody sitting home watching television where they say oh, Judge Kavanaugh this or that.

"My preference would be keeping him", Trump said, announcing he may delay the Rosenstein meeting so it does not take away from the Kavanaugh-Ford hearing.

"Judge Kavanaugh showed America exactly why I nominated him", Trump tweeted after the emotional hearing that left the process begging for an FBI investigation. "He's a tremendous man. They're obstructionists", he said.

Trump added that his experience negatively impacted his disposition to believe the multiple women with last minute allegations against his Supreme Court pick.

Finishing the rant off in style, Trump claimed he had declined to meet Canada PM Justin Trudeau at the UN.

Kavanaugh says neither incident happened and Trump has not only stood by his nominee, but cast him as the true victim - and the women bringing accusations as political pawns, insinuating that they lied.

China's says it will cut import tariffs for some products
The overall tariff level will be reduced to 7.5 percent in 2018 from 9.8 percent in 2017 as a result, the state cabinet said. Essentially cutting tariffs for non-US goods will act as a release valve for some of the pressure from the trade war.

Embittered at how a once-assured confirmation process for Kavanaugh has unraveled, Trump was hoping to regain back control during the early evening appearance in NY.

By the end of the press conference, though, Trump had returned to a defense of Kavanaugh and didn't respond to a question about what kind of signal he was sending to young men by possibly dismissing Kavanaugh's behavior. "I was accused by four or five women who got paid a lot of money to make up stories about me".

She softly detailed how Kavanaugh allegedly pinned her to a bed, "grinding his hips into me".

And he warned that the country was adopting a new, "dangerous standard" of justice, in which "you are guilty until proven innocent". Ahead of the President's arrival in NY last weekend, aides hoped an intensive schedule might deter him from further inflaming the precarious confirmation proceedings back home, which most Republicans concurred was best played out without Trump's intervention.

Trying to illustrate his point that Democrats had made up their minds about Kavanaugh's appointment, the president said even Washington wouldn't garner votes. He knows nothing about me or my client.

But Trump has been fixated on the Supreme Court confirmation battle as he shuttles between meetings with world leaders and wields the gavel at Wednesday's meeting of the United Nations Security Council. "And they go into a room and I guarantee you, they laugh like hell at what they've pulled off on [the media] and on the public".

Trump said he would like Rosenstein to continue overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller's probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible coordination with the Republican nominee's campaign. The reporter, to his credit, quipped back immediately, "I think I'll stop short of that".

Trump, when asked about sexual misconduct allegations against him, said he has had "many false charges".
