Sitting beside the President of Colombia, Iván Duque Márquez, President Donald Trump said the two on-record accusations of sexual assault and misconduct made against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh were “a con game being played by the Democrats.”

“As the President of a great country, Colombia, you must say, ‘How is this possible?’” Trump asked the Colombian president.

“Thirty-six years ago and nobody ever knew about it, nobody ever heard about it?” Trump continued. “And now a new charge comes up and she said, well, it might not be him, and there were gaps, and she said she was totally inebriated and she was all messed up and she doesn’t know it was him, but it might have been him? Oh gee, let’s not make him a Supreme Court judge because of that?”

“This is a con game being played by the Democrats.”
