He described Kavanaugh as "a man that did nothing wrong, a man that was caught up in a hoax that was set up by the Democrats, using the Democrats" lawyers'.

The president, speaking to reporters before boarding the Marine One helicopter on the White House south lawn, predicted the attack on Kavanaugh would cost the opposition party in next month's midterm congressional elections.

"I think there's no question that the tactics have energized our base like we were unable to do before this", the Kentucky Republican said.

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".

Although Kavanaugh was formally sworn in as a Supreme Court justice on Saturday evening after the final voting - while angry protesters banged on the huge front doors of the court building in Washington - there was due to be a ceremonial swearing-in at the White House on Monday evening where Trump himself will administer the oath of office.

Trying to bridge the gap between the roughly half of American women who opposed Kavanaugh's appointment to the court and the roughly half who either supported it or didn't have an opinion is probably impossible.

His appointment is for life and he will strengthen conservative control of the nine-judge court, which has the final say on USA law. "I think that the MS speech had great impact", he said, calling it "a very important thing". Kavanaugh was added to the list via the same process after Neil Gorsuch's confirmation, and attracted immediate support from orthodox members of the conservative legal establishment, where Roe v. Wade is nearly universally regarded as an abomination.

It drew the line under a bruising nomination process defined by harrowing testimony from a woman who says Kavanaugh tried to rape her when they were teenagers - and by his fiery rebuttal. "I still think that it gives us a lot of enthusiasm on our side because there are a lot of people out there that are really upset, not just with the testimony that came from Judge Kavanaugh but the way the president was even mocking (Ford) days ago". "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." The Arizona Republican, who is retiring, voted for Kavanaugh.

Mr Trump defended his candidate at a rally in Kansas at the weekend, and has now dubbed the sexual assault claims, made by two women including Christine Blasey Ford, as a "hoax".

The Supreme Court plays a critical role in pro-life policy and has for decades.

Although she is not up for re-election this year, a site raising money for her 2020 challenger crashed after her announcement to back Kavanaugh - so far, it's raised more than $3.5 million. She stated that she believes Ford was assaulted - but not by the man she remembers being Kavanaugh.
