The Kavanaugh topic dominated the news conference, however. But when he does, President Trump lets 'er rip.
Trump's skepticism was only bolstered by a piece published in The New Yorker on Sunday recounting a second allegation against Kavanaugh, this time about college-era sexual misconduct.
During a meeting with Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, President Donald Trump doubled down on his tweet dismissing the latest sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Trump called Kavanaugh was "one of the highest quality people" he's ever met.
President Trump said "until denuclearization occurs", global sanctions on the North must remain intact, . including those on ship-to-ship transfers which he previously said are being breached by certain nations.
Pompeo, who chaired the meeting of the 15-member council, said the USA had evidence that sanctions restricting North Korean oil imports and coal exports were being violated, though he did not name any alleged violators, and he demanded that United Nations members ensure their enforcement. He added: "I could be convinced of anything". Their plan, Fallon says, is to make sure President Donald Trump is similarly deprived of a SCOTUS pick, and they'll do what they have to in order to keep Kavanaugh off the bench.
Kavanaugh's opening statement was also released with him continuing to deny the allegations and saying he would not be intimidated into withdrawing. So far the White House and Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee have declined to ask for the FBI to investigate the decades-old allegations against Kavanaugh - all of which the federal appeals court judge has denied. "They are giving the women a major chance to speak".
He said that he would "certainly prefer" not to fire Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, and added that he may delay a scheduled meeting with him on Thursday to not distract from the Kavanaugh hearing.
And he warned that the country was adopting a new, "dangerous standard" of justice, in which "you are guilty until proven innocent".
Still, she said the Republican Party has moved sharply in the wrong direction with women by embracing Trump. In her opening statement for the hearing, she said a drunken Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in a locked room at a high school party in 1982. Now it's possible I'll hear that and say hey I'm changing my mind.
"President Obama thought you had to go to war".
He said Wednesday night that "the Department of Defense always looks at contingencies" but that the administration believed diplomacy was the only viable option in the Korean Peninsula.
China and Russian Federation said the council should reward Pyongyang for the "positive developments" this year with U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un having met in June and Kim pledging to work toward denuclearization.
"Republican senators have delayed this for weeks now", Trump said.
"I've had a lot of false charges against me", the president said, " so when I see it, I see it differently than from someone sitting at home".
"No meeting was requested", she said.
And Wednesday morning as he spoke during a meeting of the U.N. Security Council, Trump accused China of trying to interfere in upcoming USA midterm elections because of the hard line he has taken on trade. "It will come out", he teased. "It's a very tough situation for a woman; there's no question about it", he said.
Trump insisted he was never ridiculed by leaders on the world stage, dismissing reports that he was laughed at during his address to the U.N. General Assembly as "fake news". "I'm going to be watching, believe it or not".
Trump had appeared briefly flustered by the reaction Tuesday morning.
"I don't want to be in a position where people say, "No, thanks".
Addressing world leaders and top diplomats Tuesday, the president drew laughter when he boasted that he's accomplished more during his time in office than nearly any previous administration. We were doing it together.
Yet, as The Wall Street Journal wrote Monday, "As for the allies, sometimes US democratic accountability has to take precedence over the potential embarrassment of British intelligence". "It doesn't matter to me".
Rosenstein's discussion of wearing a wire into the Oval Office lends credence to that charge, but there is much more to it.
