President Donald Trump expressed his alarm over the Brett Kavanaugh allegations on Wednesday, saying that the new standard set by the media, Democrats, and the left was “dangerous.”
“This has everything to do with our country,” Trump said. “When you are guilty until proven innocent, it’s just not supposed to be that way.”
The president commented on the Kavanaugh accusations during a press conference at the United Nations in New York City.
Trump said that he grew up hearing the phrase “innocent until proven guilty,” suggesting that it was the proper application of justice in America.
He said that the allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh set a different standard by his enemies because he was nominated to the Supreme Court.
