Trump celebrates confirmation of Kavanaugh
US President Donald Trump on Saturday celebrated the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh at a political rally in Kansas and condemned Democrats for what he called a "shameless campaign of political and personal destruction" against Kavanaugh. To cheers of supporters in Topeka, Trump said he called Kavanaugh to congratulate him upon his ascendency to the high court. Kavanaugh was sworn in as a justice on Saturday evening in Washington. His nomination was marked by allegations of sexual misconduct when he was a high school and college student. He denied the allegations, but nearly all Senate Democrats voted against his confirmation. Trump said "radical Democrats" had become "an angry, left-wing mob" and "too dangerous and extreme to govern". He urged Kansas voters to send Republicans to Congress.
