President Trump did say he's open to changing his mind on Supreme Court nominee if the evidence at Thursday's Senate committee hearing is compelling. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said on morning talk shows that the "process could take place on Thursday", when Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, who has separately accused him of assaulting her in high school, are scheduled to testify. "Facts matter", said McConnell, who like other Republicans, has rejected Democratic calls for the FBI to investigate the allegations. "They know him very well", Trump said. Trump, who has defended Kavanaugh at length, said he did not want to miss Ford's testimony.
The president said it "wouldn't have mattered" to Democrats "if the Federal Bureau of Investigation came back with the cleanest score" if they had investigated the veracity of the claims of sexual assault and more against Kavanaugh.
"I like them a lot", Trump said.
"It's a con game that they're playing", Trump said.
"[Democrats] are actually con artists because they know how quality this man is and they've destroyed his reputation", Trump told reporters at the U.N. General Assembly in NY.
And if he believes the charges against Kavanaugh are ultimately true, he would consider withdrawing the high court nomination. And he said he may delay their highly anticipated Thursday meeting to avoid distracting from the Kavanaugh hearing.
That answer - comparing his own accusers to those of Kavanaugh - surely made Senate Republicans who are desperately trying to confirm the judge groan.
In a prepared written testimony shared by the committee on Wednesday, Kavanaugh repeated his denial of the allegations against him, accusing those who have come forward with accusations of "obvious character assassination". "I think it's important, no matter what side you're on on this, whether you want him or you don't want him, don't you want to have the facts?"
European Union to SNUB Trump and continue trading with Tehran
The EU, US allies, and the global nuclear watchdog, IAEA, maintain that Iran continues to abide by the terms of the agreement. The US administration reintroduced the previous sanctions while imposing new ones on the Islamic Republic.
"I heard smiles... They weren't laughing at me, they were laughing with me".
The sensational claims have thrust Judge Kavanaugh into a media storm as the allegations continue to pile up.
"I'm going to be watching, you know, believe it or not", Trump said Wednesday.
Donald Trump, 72, has been president for over 20 months, but in all of that time he's only given four press conferences.
"Just when you think we've hit rock bottom, Donald Trump finds a way to go even lower. They expect this to be treated seriously and addressed promptly", McConnell said in a speech on the Senate floor.
Trump also applauded his work in North Korea and highlighted his positive relationship with dictator Kim Jong Un. Speaking at the United Nations earlier, Trump said a time and location for the talks would be announced in the near future, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is set to travel to Pyongyang in October to discuss the matter further. "People want fame, they want money, whatever". "We will never surrender America's sovereignty to an unelected, unaccountable, global bureaucracy". He said he did not remember being at a party with her.
Trump called on reporters at will, often taking time to malign or praise their respective news outlets.
