Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell, who led the fight for Kavanaugh's confirmation and for other conservative judges to lower courts, called the effort "the most important thing that the Senate and an administration of like mind. could do for the country".

"The democrats have become too extreme and too risky to govern", Trump said.
Ultimately, every Democrat voted against Mr Kavanaugh except for Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia. "Women will feel much more confident in the court when their fundamental rights are protected and their equal dignity is respected in the rulings handed down by the justices". "A total coward."
