Trump Open to Changing Mind on Kavanaugh

During his press conference, Trump also lambasted the Democratic Party for highlighting accusations against Kavanaugh.

Sen. Susan Collins of ME, a critical vote that Republicans need to get Kavnaugh's nomination through confirmation, has said she wants to hear from Ramirez under oath. Here are the best takeaways. "I want to help them". "I can't tell you if they're liars until I hear them". Minutes later he would forcibly deny that he ever said this.

Arguing that "false accusations of all types are made against a lot of people", Trump defended Judge Brett Kavanaugh on Tuesday against allegations of decades-old sexual abuse.

Trump declined to call the women who have made accusations against Kavanaugh liars, but said he empathizes with the judge given that multiple women came forward with allegations against him during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Twitter liberals were immediately there to confirm it. "What does he mean by that?"

President Donald Trump addresses the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly, at U.N. headquarters, Tuesday, Sept. 25, 2018.

His cautious performance reassured some White House officials, but also left lingering concerns about how he would stand up under questioning from Democrats at a Judiciary Committee hearing on Thursday, where one of his accusers, Christine Blasey Ford, is expected to appear.

Ashley Kavanaugh was asked whether she wondered if her husband was telling the truth about the allegations against him. Trump answered at length about how he believes those allegations came to be.

She continued: 'No one is trying to hide from this. He said he did not remember being at a party with her. He didn't say who he believed was throwing cash around to smear him.

Asked by host George Stephanopolous why not let the Federal Bureau of Investigation get involved, she said: 'Because we have a process in place.

Kavanaugh said Monday on Fox News Channel, "I've never sexually assaulted anyone".

"My preference would be to keep him and to let him finish up".

"We're not playing the time game". North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, for example. "They know him very well", Trump said.

There was room for the freaky in the global part of the briefing, of course.


Trump at one point referred to a reporter from Kurdistan TV as "Mr. Kurd". Trump spoke to advisers inside and outside the White House on Sunday about the report and it did not shake his support for Kavanaugh, said a person with knowledge of the conversations who was not authorized to speak publicly. "The girls from the schools I went to and I were friends". CNN has not independently confirmed The New Yorker's reporting.

"What we are probably going to do is call it USMC..."

"No meeting was requested", she said.

But Trudeau spokeswoman Eleanore Catenaro said that never happened.

"People want fame. They want money".

"There are riots in the streets, you can't buy bread, you can't buy anything, it's a disaster".

The most important thing is that Iranians are having it much worse now than they were "during the green period with President Obama".

While Trump has repeatedly weathered allegations from women, the Kavanaugh controversy presents the biggest challenge yet for Trump in the #MeToo moment.

'And a number of other Democrats should have the same type of scrutiny, ' said Sanders.

"Many years after. I'll leave it at that", Kavanaugh said. "I can only say that what they've done to this man is incredible". "I'm a facilitator. I want to see if I can get a deal done so that people don't get killed anymore". "We only ask that you honor our sovereignty in return". One of the moves that caused the most outrage was his moving the USA embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, which derailed talks and caused Arab protests worldwide.

Trump once again claimed China has tried to meddle in the upcoming midterm elections in retaliation for Trump's tough trade policies - but declined to offer proof.

"If I wasn't elected, you would have had a war", he said, adding, "You know how close he was to pressing the trigger for war?"

The administration says China is hurting farmers and workers in pro-Trump states and districts. Or "maybe he's not anymore".
