Trump Blasts 'Con Artist' Dems He Says 'Laugh' at Kavanaugh Allegations

"Who knows, you know?" He finished by saying that the allegations against him that appeared in the New York Times were "fake news".

Rosenstein's discussion of wearing a wire into the Oval Office lends credence to that charge, but there is much more to it. CNN's Jim Acosta - no stranger to seeking the spotlight himself in his self-appointed role as Trump antagonist asked him if, after he was done, whether the president might call on a female reporter. Create more jobs. So I'm anxious about the fact that they seem to like raising interest rates.

Donald Trump attacked China and Canada, praised North Korea and defended his embattled Supreme Court nominee during a rare news conference in NY. He raised the canard that "four or five women who got paid a lot of money" accused him of sexual harassment and implied that he could determine himself whether people accused had actually committed the acts.

Trump brushed them all off, for example dismissing the "grab 'em" remark as harmless "locker room talk".

Appearing to offer support for the deputy attorney general, Trump said Rosenstein told him that he did not discuss invoking the 25th Amendment past year while offering to wear a wire to gather evidence of the president's erratic behavior following the abrupt dismissal of FBI Director James Comey.

He stood by his decision not to call on the FBI to reopen its background investigation of Kavanaugh, and repeated his insistence the parade of accusations against Kavanaugh amount to a "big fat con" orchestrated by Democrats.

But the Republican base will greet Trump's position as a breath of fresh air, Siegfried said.

During his news conference, Trump said he doesn't believe the accusations.

Weather Authority: Rain showers likely on Tuesday
Temperatures will cool by a few degrees Wednesday and Thursday with overnight lows reaching the 60s Thursday and Friday mornings. Wednesday will be mostly cloudy and warm (the mercury could hit 77 in Boston) with a chance of showers and thunderstorms.

"I will watch. I hope I can see".

For almost 90 minutes, the President wandered from topic to topic, often praising himself and resorting to his favorite material, including "the wall" and "if I wasn't elected, you'd be in a war".

Though Kavanaugh has been flabbergasted as the women have come forward, he has remained measured publicly, while Trump has become increasingly agitated and animated while discussing the allegations. The president says the heads of states and delegates in the audience "weren't laughing at me". Now it's possible I'll hear that and say hey I'm changing my mind.

Trump also announced he is leaning toward keeping Rod Rosenstein as deputy attorney general, a decision that would avoid a major crisis at the Justice Department related to the Russian Federation investigation at the same time the massive controversy swirls around his Supreme Court nominee.

The president has supported Kavanaugh repeatedly this week as the federal judge has worked to fend off allegations of sexual misconduct from the early 1980s.

The accuser - Dr. Christine Blasey Ford - has staunch supporters of her account from 36 years ago.

Mr Trump also criticised NAFTA, the deal between the US, Canada and Mexico, but refused to say if he would be pulling out of it. That tweet - he questioned why Ford did not report the alleged assault at the time - drew a fiery response from women online, with many posting first-person stories about their experiences with the Twitter hashtag #WhyIDidntReport.
