USA: Trump hails Kavanaugh hearing as 'really good' before confirmation

US President Donald Trump praised Judge Brett Kavanaugh moments before he was confirmed as a Supreme Court Justice as he spoke in Washington DC on Saturday. Trump, who was heading to a rally in Kansas, said that Kavanaugh was 'going to make us all very proud' and was 'an extraordinary person of great, great talent.' «I also feel very strongly that in the end maybe the process, it was really... Еще unattractive but the extra week was something that I think was really good,» Trump said of the hearings on Kavanaugh alleged sexual misconduct. «I think he's going to be a great, great Supreme Court Justice for many years. It's a very exciting time,» he said. Kavanaugh was later confirmed to the court in a narrow 50:48 vote in the Senate. The narrow confirmation follows weeks of controversy and debate after Kavanaugh was accused of sexual assault by Christine Blasey Ford, a research psychiatrist, who alleged Kavanaugh assaulted her at a high school party in 1982. The vote comes as a major win for Trump who continued to express his full support for Kavanaugh despite Ford's accusations.
