After President Trump met with the United Nations for three days in New York City, he held a news conference to address just days before his Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, faced a hearing about an allegation of sexual assault. During the conference, Trump said claimed the media agreed that the accusations were false. His encapsulation of the media's opinion was misleading. No member of the media had said anything of the sort because it was impossible to know if the accusations were false, based on the available facts.
Quote | He defended his nominee by saying even the media agreed the accusations were false.
"I only tell you this — this is one of the highest quality people that I’ve ever met. And everybody that knows him says the same thing, and these are all false to me. These are false accusations in certain cases, and certain cases even the media agrees with that. I can only say that what they’ve done to this man is incredible," Trump said at a news conference, defending his Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.
