Trump Says His Past Accusers Influence Thinking on Kavanaugh

US President Donald Trump praised his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh but said he was open to withdrawing his nomination if allegations of sexual assault against him prove credible

Also speaking to RFA, a source in North Pyongan province, bordering China, said that he had recently spent an entire day talking with relatives from Pyongyang about South Korea's president and the speech that he gave.

President Donald Trump, who is in NY this week for the United Nations General Assembly, will speak this afternoon at a general news conference.

Wading into the #MeToo moment, Mr Trump said he views such accusations "differently" because he has "had a lot of false charges made against me".

"If I wasn't elected, you'd be in a war", Trump declared, seeking to bolster his claim by implying that Obama had "essentially" told him so directly.

"If we brought George Washington here, and we said we have George Washington, the Democrats would vote against him... and he may have had a bad past, who knows". Kavanaugh denies all of the allegations. Since then, two more women have come forward with abuse allegations.

While Trump has wondered if he was well-advised to choose Kavanaugh, he now believes that Republicans must fight back harder, mindful of the message it would send to his supporters if the GOP-controlled Senate can not help him get another conservative jurist on the high court. CNN notes at least 17 women have accused Trump of sexual assault. For while the matter assigned to special counsel Robert Mueller, to investigate any Trump collusion with Russian Federation in hacking the emails of the Clinton campaign and DNC, is serious, a far graver matter has gotten far less attention.

Meghan Milloy and Jennifer Pierotti, co-founders of Republican Women for Progress, which supports moderate Republican women, were particularly frustrated by the absence of Republican women on the Judiciary Committee.

She added: "I personally am very aggrieved for all of them, but we can not put decades of pent-up demand for women to feel whole on one man's shoulders". "This is a person, and this is a series of statements that's going to take one of the most talented, one of the greatest intellects from a judicial standpoint in our country going to keep him off the United States Supreme Court".

The duo of Aubameyang and Lacazette seem to be promising performers, helping the team register wins in recent games. I don't think Silva should be anxious about his future, but a good striker can mean a manager keeps his job.

Milloy called it a "cyclical issue".

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned council members - including his Chinese counterpart, Wang Yi, who sit across the table - that "enforcement of Security Council sanctions must continue vigorously and without fail until we realise final, fully verified denuclearisation".

When she learned Kavanaugh was picked for the Supreme Court, she contacted her local congresswoman and the Washington Post. Activists are urging the party to slow down.

Material from the Associated Press has been used in this report.

Trump said he rejected a one-on-one meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on the sidelines of the United Nations because he's annoyed by the country's trade negotiations.

While Trump has wondered if he was well-advised to choose Kavanaugh, he now believes Republicans must fight back harder, mindful of the message it would send to his supporters if the GOP-controlled Senate can not help him get another conservative jurist on the high court. Absolutely. Because I've had it many times. The disparity repeated itself for the first time in a midterm election in 1986, said University of Virginia professor Jennifer Lawless. He represented Democrats. Nobody ever talks about that.

In June, a week after his summit in Singapore with Kim, Trump suggested that the media would have named Obama a "national hero" if he too had "gotten along" with Pyongyang.

Among GOP women, the drop was 19 points since last week, with 68 percent approving and 26 percent disapproving.
