Trump Calls Kavanaugh Accusations ‘All False’ in Rambling Press Conference

Trump Calls Kavanaugh Accusations ‘All False’ in Rambling Press Conference

President Trump is doubling down on his assertions that the allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh are a "con job" by Democrats during a Wednesday afternoon press conference, but seemed to leave open the possibility of withdrawing Kavanaugh's nomination should he become convinced the allegations are true. And the world leaders there to hear his message agreed.

The Arizona senator added: "How many times do we have to marginalize and ignore women before we learn that important lesson?"

"But when I saw the South Korean president speak so sincerely and hold hands with Kim Jong Un with smiles on his face, I could feel the affection of us having the same ethnic roots". His counterparts were laughing. The global leaders added spirited applause, seemingly impressed by Trump's willingness to be mocked in his own hometown.

The second part of Fallon's genius plan comes in November: "If Democrats are able to win back the Senate, we'd have a path to blocking Trump from picking any of the archconservatives on his short list". The address also included warnings to Iran to cease both its nuclear arms ambitions and its destabilizing actions in the region.

"It's happened to me many times", he said, claiming he had been accused - falsely - by "four or five women".

The hall-wide laughter returned later when Trump turned to global energy prices.

In July, Russia and China delayed a US push for the council's sanctions committee to order a halt to refined petroleum exports to North Korea, asking for more detail on a USA accusation that Pyongyang breached sanctions, diplomats said. "Now Trump gets laughed at".

As he and other Republicans have said before, Trump today said that "a con game being played by the Democrats" with regard to the accusations against his nominee Kavanaugh. Trump said: "If I thought he was guilty of something like this. yeah, sure". He may have had, I think, accusations made.

Trump also turned his fire directly on Avenatti, tweeting that he was a "third rate lawyer" pushing "false accusations" against Kavanaugh and himself.

"But many of those who participated say that they applauded from their heart after hearing [Moon's] humble and heartfelt speech", he said.




"Now a new charge comes up".

But Suga also said he would refrain from disclosing what the two foreign ministers discussed.

"No meeting was requested", she said.

Trump's comments about his accusers drew swift reaction from an attorney for Summer Zervos, a former contestant on Trump's reality TV show "The Apprentice", who says Trump made unwanted advances toward her, then defamed her by saying she lied about it.

China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi, whose country is North Korea's main ally, agreed that the sanctions "remain valid", but he said the resolutions provide for them to be modified based on North Korea's compliance and the council should consider doing so. "That is obstruction and con".

Trump questioned why the woman - who all accuse Kavanaugh of misconduct when he was in high school or college - didn't come forward sooner.

The Republican Party's woman problem began long before Trump's rise.

Kavanaugh and his chief accuser Christine Blasey Ford, who says Kavanaugh assaulted her in high school, are set to testify Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee. She admits that she was drunk.

Ford and Kavanaugh are both scheduled to testify to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday (local time).

"Unfortunately, it appears that Republican leaders have pre-judged the outcome of Thursday's hearing", the email read. "What are they hiding?"
