The nomination has become a politically explosive issue ahead of November 6 elections, when control of Congress is at stake.

While the president and other conservatives have suggested that countless young men will now be falsely accused of sexual assault due to the allegations against Kavanaugh, a 2012 study showed that only about two percent of rape accusations are found to be false. "'I don't remember, '" he continued.

Later, when asked by a reporter if he had a message for young women across the country, the president responded by saying that "women are doing great", according to a pool report on his comments.

He dismissed accusations that Democrats were trying to delay the vote, noting that it was moderate Republicans in the Senate who slowed the Kavanaugh confirmation process in the past week. "Trump said. "'I don't remember.' 'How did you get there? "'I don't remember, '" Trump said, mocking Ford's voice. "There's been a lot of people over the a year ago that have lied to Congress", Trump said.

Republicans control the Senate by a 51-49 margin.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has said a vote will take place this week after the FBI wraps up its supplemental investigation into claims against Kavanaugh, which now includes allegations of drinking problems.

"But here's what we know. one thing for sure".

Lawyers for two of the accusers meanwhile said Tuesday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is not interviewing witnesses or following leads that would support their allegations.

In addition to Ford's allegations, Deborah Ramirez, a former classmate of Kavanaugh's at Yale, has accused Kavanaugh of exposing himself at a drunken party during the 1983-84 academic year.

The presumption of innocence, Trump noted, seems to erode at a moment's notice once somebody brings sexual assault allegations against an individual, as in the case of Judge Kavanaugh, who is being accused of misconduct that allegedly occurred over three decades ago. Trump said, characterizing Ford's testimony about her level of intoxication as a teenager when she says she was attacked at a small get-together in Montgomery County, Md., in the early 1980s.
