During the conference, Trump detailed an upcoming trade deal and following his speech, opened up the podium for the press to ask him questions.
Trump then said, "That's OK".
One the reporters on the receiving end of Trump's ridicule was Cecilia Vega of ABC.
When she continued to ask her question about Mr Kavanaugh, he dismissed her and said, "Excuse me, don't do that, don't do that, be nice" before turning to another reporter and ignoring her. She's in a state of shock. Vega waited to be handed the microphone, and either said "I'm not - thank you, Mr. President" or "I'm not thinking, Mr. President" as she stood up and glanced at her notes.
He then adds, "That's OK, I know you're not thinking, you never do".
Asked if the Federal Bureau of Investigation should interview Kavanaugh himself, Trump pronounced that "fine if they do; it's up to them".
Vega asked a question about the confirmation process of Brett Kavanaugh.

Trump also asked cut off another female reporter who asked him about the failure to follow through with a ban on bump stocks. "Mr. President, just to wrap up, do you promise to release the Federal Bureau of Investigation report'".
Again, there isn't a good time for Trump to mock women professionals like this, but after last week's Senate Judiciary Committee hearing - a discussion in which Republicans weren't even comfortable asking questions of a Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, so they brought in a woman do to "assist" them - the president really ought to understand that antics like these rankle for a reason. "You've had enough", he yelled before turning to another reporter.
It's against this backdrop that the president hosted a press conference this morning on the revised NAFTA agreement. She's in a state of shock. One who is on the other side who is pretty aggressive. I've seen that person in very bad situations. "You never do", the president muttered. I " ve seen that person in very, very bad situations", Mr Trump said, in response to a question about whether Kavanaugh should be interviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
He did not name the senator or provide any evidence.
"I think I'll save it for a book like everybody else", he said. Can you imagine if I had?
