During this historic Supreme Court justice swearing in-cum-Dem-smackdown, Trump said "In our country a man or a woman must always be presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty" adding, "And with that, I must state that you sir, under historic, scrutiny were proven innocent".
But after being sworn in, Kavanaugh struck a markedly more conciliatory tone.
"The Supreme Court is an institution of law".
During a ceremonial swearing-in at the White House this evening, Kavanaugh described the confirmation process as "contentious and emotional" but said he has "no bitterness". That process is over.
"I've always been told it's the biggest thing a president can do and I can understand that", he said yesterday upon returning from the brief Florida trip.
He said: "Although the Senate confirmation process tested me as it has tested others, it did not change me".
Mr Trump says Democrats will lose in the 6 November congressional elections, which will shape the remainder of his presidency. However, Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan did not offer remarks during their respective swearing-in ceremonies, opting, instead, to speak at receptions with then-President Barack Obama regarding their appointments. "I'm proud that all four of my newly hired law clerks at the Supreme Court are women".
Kavanaugh's confirmation process exploded in controversy after California university professor Christine Blasey Ford went public with allegations that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in 1982, while they were in high school. "That is who I am". Democratic lawmakers, like Booker, are hoping to channel that anger into votes.
As he departed the White House, Trump lauded Kavanaugh as a "brilliant jurist" and blamed Democrats for the focus on decades-old allegations of sexual misconduct that dominated debate in the weeks before the nominee's Senate confirmation at the weekend.
Democrats have said that an FBI investigation into the allegations that Trump ordered was too limited in scope to be useful.
"It was a disgraceful situation brought about by people that are evil".
"False charges. False accusations", the president said at a convention for police chiefs in Orlando.
Mr Kavanaugh was voted into the Supreme Court on Saturday. Joe Manchin of West Virginia. The main base of the Democrats has shifted so far left that we'll end up being Venezuela. "Pursuant with the data practices act, we are limited to providing additional information regarding this matter", Zuzek said in a statement. McConnell called the current partisan divide a "low point", but he blamed Democrats. But when asked again Sunday about it, he said different rules might apply if the same party controls the Senate and White House.
