Highlights from what he said about Kavanaugh (and everything else)

With #MeToo firing up millions of women against sexual abuse by male bosses and President Donald Trump routinely weighing in on the side of the accused, America faces an all-out war of the sexes ahead of November elections.

The comments came as Trump blasted the numerous accusations that have come against Kavanaugh in recent days and added that he would be watching the hearing where Dr. Christine Blasey Ford will testify on Thursday. Because I've had a lot of false charges made against me.

The press conference stretched to an hour and 20 minutes, his longest since February, 2017, and touched on an array of issues including trade with Canada, claims of Chinese interference in the USA elections, and his relationship with Kim Jong-un of North Korea.

"It's possible I'll hear that and say, 'hey, I'm changing my mind, ' " Trump said of the anticipated testimony.

"They know it's a big fat con job, and they go into a room and I guarantee you they laugh like at hell at what they pulled off on you and on the public", he said. "He's a tremendous man".

He said: We are very unhappy with the negotiating style from Canada.

Still, President Trump is not ruling out withdrawing Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination.

Trump's struggle to win Kavanaugh's confirmation is all the more hard because of his own personal record of saying very bad things about women and the multiple allegations of sexual harassment made against him during the 2016 campaign.

When asked if he intends to fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein during a planned Thursday meeting, he said, "I would certainly prefer not doing that".

At one point, Trump even mused that "didn't George Washington have some allegations against him?"

Some Democratic lawmakers have accused Trump of seeking Rosenstein's removal as part of a plan to shut down the Russian Federation inquiry.

Fusion swiftly hired retired British spy and Trump hater Christopher Steele, who contacted his old sources in the Russian intel community for dirt to help sink a USA presidential candidate.

The president refused to say whether he believed the women accusers of Kavanaugh were liars, dismissing the question as a "game" set up by reporters.

"That's probably the nicest phrase I've ever used", Trump said.

A major first battle will erupt Thursday, when the Senate, controlled by Trump's Republicans, meets in the bitter confirmation process for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. He smiled and said, "I didn't expect that reaction, but that's OK".

As he gave a master class in changing the topic and misdirection, Trump tried to charm by joshing with reporters and tossing off observations about how the Kurdish people are "great fighters". "I think that is a very unsafe standard for our country", Trump said. I've been a famous person for a long time ...

"I was accused by four or five women who got paid a lot of money to make up stories about me", Trump told a journalist. Ahead of the President's arrival in NY last weekend, aides hoped an intensive schedule might deter him from further inflaming the precarious confirmation proceedings back home, which most Republicans concurred was best played out without Trump's intervention.
