Donald Trump: 'Scary time for young men' in US

Trump Don't think Kavanaugh lied

The FBI is investigating, lawmakers are sniping and the nation is watching.

Trump's oldest son, Donald Trump Jr, told the Daily Mail this week, "I've got boys, and I've got girls. This is a very, very, very hard time", he said.

Speaking to reporters at the White House on Tuesday, Mr Trump said: "My whole life I've heard, "you're innocent until proven guilty", but now you're guilty until proven innocent". Depending on how Republicans perform on November 6, the eyes of the nation could fall on a November 27 MS runoff in what could become an expensive and high-profile race to determine control of the Senate.

The ridicule of Blasey cut against the grain of the Republican strategy until that point of trying to gingerly question her account without seeming to attack her. Senate Republicans have emphasized their respect for Blasey and have praised her bravery in coming forward even as they accepted Kavanaugh's adamant denials.

The commander in chief praised his Supreme Court pick, calling Kavanaugh "one of accomplished most legal minds of our time a juris with a sterling record of public service".

"Somebody could accuse you of something, and you're automatically guilty", he said.

"What his handsome children are going through is not describable, it's not fair", Trump said.

The comments came days after the Federal Bureau of Investigation opened a Senate-requested probe into allegations by 3 women that a drunken Kavanaugh sexually abused them or engaged in sexual misconduct while they were students in the 1980s. Kavanaugh has denied Ford's allegations. They also have criticized Kavanaugh for his angry testimony about the allegations - which include being present at a gang rape - when he testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

He had previously called her a "very credible witness". 'I don't remember.' How did you get there? "Now I am not saying that this is the same situation, because I don't think Dr. Ford is lying". He called himself the victim of "a calculated and orchestrated political hit" by Democrats, lashing out at Democratic senators and frequently interrupting them. Trump subsequently ordered the investigation.

Senator McConnell said a vote would happen on Mr Kavanaugh's nomination by the end of the week.

"Hm, I guess the president is really feeling the pressure tonight because what he says about Professor Ford is just not true, okay?" The race is one of the most contentious (and expensive) in the country for this year's midterm elections, seen as an opportunity for Republicans to grab a seat held by a vulnerable Democrat. Stopping nomination long enough for Dems to take control of Senate.

At the Senate, meanwhile, Republicans accused Democrats of doing everything in their power to delay a confirmation vote. "'I had one beer, '" Trump began. "The Senate will vote on Judge Kavanaugh here, on this floor, this week", McConnell told the chamber. Flake said lying to the Senate Judiciary Committee would be an immediate dealbreaker on the nominee for him.
