President Trump told reporters that the Senate Democrats demanding answers for the accusations of sexual assault against Brett Kavanaugh are not “angels,” but would not go much farther into what he knows about them.
Trump made the comments when he was asked about his embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh during a press conference on the new trade agreement reached between the United States, Mexico and Canada at the White House Monday.
“I watch those senators on the Democrat side, and I thought it was a disgrace,” Trump told reporters gathered at the White House for a press conference on the new trade agreement reached between the United States, Mexico and Canada. “Partially because I know them. I know them too well. You know what? They are not angels,” Trump said of the Senate Democrats.
Trump was asked by a reporter what he meant by his “angels” comment: “You just said that some Senators are not angels, and you’ve seen them in compromising situations.”
Trump responded, saying “I would say some of them, yes.”
The reporter continued, “Can you tell us who and exactly what situation —”
President Trump scoffed at the question, saying, “I think I will save it for a book like everybody else. I will write it. I won’t give it to you.”
Trump later hit Sens. Richard Blumenthal, Cory Booker and Dianne Feinstein for various lies and sexually explicit activity.
