Trump Praises Kavanaugh as Senate Approves Supreme Court Nomination

WASHINGTON – United States President Donald Trump has praised Brett Kavanaugh, his nominee for the Supreme Court who was sworn in to his new position on the country’s top court on Saturday after a Senate vote.

Speaking to reporters before departing the White House for a rally in Kansas, Trump reiterated his support for Kavanaugh, who has been accused by multiple women of sexual assault.

“He will be a great justice of the Supreme Court,” Trump said shortly before the vote. “People have thought that for 10 years, they thought he’s just an extraordinary person, a great talent. And I think he’s going to make us all very proud.”

Kavanaugh, who was sworn in to the vacant position on the Supreme Court in a private ceremony later on Saturday, angrily denied accusations by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who accused him of sexually assaulting her when the pair were in high school during a dramatic Senate committee hearing on Sept. 27.

The dramatic testimony led to the FBI reviewing the case, while hundreds of people protested in Washington DC last week to protest against the Republican Party and the president for their continued support of Kavanaugh despite the allegations against him.

“In the end, maybe the process, it was really unattractive, but the extra week was something that I think was really good,” Trump said. “I think a lot of very positive things happened in the last week. It didn’t look that way but, in the end, that’s what happened.”

“It was uncorroborated, it was so many different things,” Trump said, again apparently doubting Blasey-Ford’s allegations.

At a rally in Mississippi last week, Trump had ridiculed her testimony for failing to recall specific details of the alleged assault, as well as questioning the length of time it took her to publicly make the allegation.

The president also implied that she had been paid by Democrats to sabotage his nomination of a conservative justice to the Supreme Court.
