Amid Kavanaugh allegations, Trump says it is 'scary time' for young men
"Can you imagine if I had?" he said to laughs. But now, you're guilty until proven innocent.
The fight over Kavanaugh's nomination to a lifetime job on the top USA court comes against the backdrop of the #MeToo movement fighting sexual harassment and assault that has toppled a succession of powerful men. Kavanaugh's truthfulness with the Senate goes to the very heart of whether he should be confirmed to the court.
The nomination has become a politically explosive issue ahead of November 6 elections, when control of Congress is at stake.
While he defended Kavanaugh, Trump said that the appeals court judge has had a "bit of difficulty" with alcohol.
"I don't think he did", Trump said.
In last week's hearing, Blasey Ford said Judge witnessed Kavanaugh's alleged assault and jumped on top of them as it happened, sending all three tumbling and allowing her to escape.
"What neighbourhood was it in?"
Kavanaugh dodged the question when asked what he considers to be "too many" beers. "Whatever that means, according to the senators and the Republicans and the Republican majority, I want them to do that", Trump said at a White House news conference.
"And a man's life is in tatters", he added.
The news comes amid a controversial FBI investigation that aims to uncover more information revolving around the sexual assault allegations made by several women against Kavanaugh.

But "this case is even weaker than that", Mitchell wrote to Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
President Donald Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court is under investigation by the FBI for allegations of sexual misconduct when he was in high school and college.
"I was very troubled by the tone of the remarks".
Kavanaugh struck an angry and defiant tone at the hearing. The SCOTUS nominee has categorically denied the accusation, calling it a "political hit" supposedly orchestrated by the Democratic Party. As he praised Kavanaugh, Trump said that there had apparently been no complaints about the SCOTUS nominee and his drinking habits "in many, many years".

Judge's interview started but "has not been completed", his attorney said in a statement quoted by Fox News. Judge has previously denied any memory of such an incident. "Dr. Ford identified other witnesses to the event, and those witnesses either refuted her allegations or failed to corroborate them".
The FBI was also due to question Leland Keyser and P.J. Smyth, two people who Ford said were at the gathering of teenagers where Kavanaugh allegedly assaulted her. A third accuser, Julie Swetnick, alleged misconduct at a high school party.
