Trump Demands Vote on Kavanaugh, Praises Senate Testimony

(Bloomberg) -- President Donald Trump demanded a Senate vote on confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and praised his performance minutes after a hearing on sexual assault allegations against him.

Kavanaugh’s testimony “was powerful, honest, and riveting,” Trump said in a tweet. “Democrats’ search and destroy strategy is disgraceful and this process has been a total sham and effort to delay, obstruct, and resist. The Senate must vote!”
