With Kavanaugh nomination, Trump faces #MeToo

US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh speaks on the second day of his confirmation hearing in front of the US Senate on Capitol Hill in Washington DC

US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh speaks on the second day of his confirmation hearing in front of the US Senate on Capitol Hill in Washington DC

World leaders, in a stunning and awkward rebuke, laughed at President Donald Trump on Tuesday.

Trump said that he grew up hearing the phrase "innocent until proven guilty", suggesting that it was the proper application of justice in America.

During a rare press conference Wednesday, President Trump defended his embattled his Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh from multiple allegations of sexual misconduct. Trump said. "Because I've had a lot of false charges against me".

"They weren't laughing at me, they were laughing with me", Trump said on Wednesday during his press conference in NY.

"And you know what, I could be persuaded, also", he said.

Trying to illustrate his point that Democrats had made up their minds about Kavanaugh's appointment, the president said even Washington wouldn't garner votes.

Trump began what was billed by his top aides as a major foreign policy address targeting Iran and setting the stage for new talks with North Korea by touting what he sees as top domestic accomplishments. It's happened to me many times. Trump spoke to advisers inside and outside the White House on Sunday about the report and it did not shake his support for Kavanaugh, said a person with knowledge of the conversations who was not authorized to speak publicly.

Trump acknowledged that he is sensitive to false allegations because he has been the target of them.

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".

"In fact, when I walked out here to do this, it was still going on", Colbert quipped.

"My preference would be to keep him and let him finish up - you know, I called it a witch hunt, and it is a witch hunt", he said.

The allegations from the woman, identified as Julie Swetnick, come on the eve of a special session of the judiciary committee, in which both Kavanaugh and another accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, will appear separately. "It's a very tough situation for a woman; there's no question about it", he said.

Trump, however, did not spare Democrats - or lawyer Michael Avenatti, for that matter.

"I don't want to be in a position where people say, 'No, thanks".

Trump, who has long loved sparring with the media, seemed especially engaged on Wednesday, bashing the "fake news" with one breath and praising reporters with another.

Ford, who has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her at a party in their high school years, is due to testify first.

Trump allowed that he'd heard "a little rustle" as he began reciting US economic gains under his watch, but he insisted: "They weren't laughing at me. A couple more, I don't care".

The remarks left many people on Twitter puzzled. And on Wednesday (Thursday NZT), a woman represented by Avenatti - who shot to fame as the attorney taking on the president for porn actress Stormy Daniels - made another accusation of misconduct. "Elton John said when you hit that last tune and it's good, don't go back".
