Trump says it’s ‘a very scary time for young men in America’

Five days after an extraordinary Senate hearing watched by millions of people in which university professor Christine Blasey Ford detailed her sexual assault allegation against Kavanaugh, Trump raised the issue of false accusations against men.

He said on CBS Sunday that Democrats had "betrayed" and "victimized" Blasey Ford during their "search-and-destroy" mission for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, adding that the breach in confidentiality would decrease the likelihood that women will come forward with sexual assault allegations in the future.

Ford alleges that a drunken Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed, groped her and placed his hand over her mouth to silence her when both were teenagers in Maryland in the early 1980s.

"I mean, right now, I'd say my sons", Trump Jr. said in the interview. 'I don't remember.' How did you get there? "Sometimes I had too many beers", he told the panel. I don't know. I don't know.

"I happen to know some United States senators, one who is on the other side, who is pretty aggressive".

John Clune said Ms Ramirez was interviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Sunday and provided agents with the witnesses' contact numbers.

Mr. Trump said "a man's life is shattered", referencing Kavanaugh, and "these are really evil people". Kavanaugh was also given a chance to respond to the allegations, which he angrily denied. "I respect her position very much", Trump said to reporters on Monday.

Trump also said he believes Kavanaugh is "doing very well right now", but added that the judge's fate will depend on the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

With Republicans defending majorities in the House and Senate next month, officials cast Mr. Trump's visit as an attempt to get ahead of a potentially perilous situation.

From his point of view, America of today is a place 'where you can be guilty of something you may not be guilty of...

A vote to confirm Mr Kavanaugh has been delayed as the FBI investigates the claims, which he denies.

But earlier, the Senate Democratic leader claimed there was "mounting evidence that Judge Kavanaugh is just not credible".

President Donald Trump received some serious backlash on Twitter after he called out Dr. Christine Blasey Ford for not remembering many details about her alleged sexual assault by Brett Kavanaugh. So far, no Democrat has announced support for Kavanaugh and no Republican has declared opposition to him. Many Republican senators have said they view the accusations and subsequent questions as desperate delay tactics on the part of Democrats.

"She's always had my back", Trump said.

As the fresh review unfolded, the prosecutor who was brought in by Republicans to handle questioning at last week's hearing outlined in a new memo why she did not believe criminal charges would be brought against Kavanaugh if it were a criminal case rather than a Supreme Court confirmation process.

During the 2016 campaign, at least 15 women accused Trump of misbehavior ranging from sexual harassment and sexual assault to lewd behavior around women.
