President Trump defends Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh during a press conference on the USMCA at the White House.
"I was surprised at how vocal he was about the fact that he likes beer, and he's had a little bit of difficulty, I mean he talked about things that happened when he drinks - this is not a man that said. that he was ideal with respect to alcohol". He talked about things that happened when he drank. "This is not a man that said ... he was ideal with respect to alcohol".
Added Trump: "Can you imagine if I had, what a mess I'd be?"
"I graduated from high school, and while I didn't drink, I saw people drinking", Trump, a famous teetotaler, said. "They drink beer, go insane. Does that mean that they can't do something they want to do in their life?"
Testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, Kavanaugh vehemently denied the sexual abuse allegations, and also aggressively challenged suggestions he had an alcohol problem at the time. "I never drank, OK?" "Sometimes I had too many beers", he told the panel.

"Yes, we drank beer. I liked beer. I still like beer", he said.
Trump again defended the conservative judge, who would help tilt the highest court to the right for years to come, saying that Kavanaugh had been open during Senate testimony about his liking for beer as a young man.
Trump said on Monday that he wants the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into his nominee to wrap up quickly because the accusations have been "so unfair" to Kavanaugh and his family.
"I think the Federal Bureau of Investigation should do what they have to do to get to the answer", Trump said.
