Donald Trump spoke to the press pool at the White House Wednesday morning, where he addressed a wide range of issues from the difficulties surrounding his embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, to the cooperation of his former campaign chair Paul Manafort with the Russia probe, to his criticism this morning of his own attorney general, Jeff Sessions.

Trump was effusive in his praise of Kavanaugh, whose nomination to the highest court has been delayed by accusations of sexual assault from Christine Ford, who claims the nominee attacked her at a party in the 1980s.

“I think he’s an extraordinary man. I think he’s a man of great intellect, as I’ve been telling you, and he had this unblemished record. This is a very tough thing for him and his family. And we want to get it over with,” Trump said.

The president also said it was “very hard for me to imagine that anything happened.”

President Donald Trump went to Walter Reed over the weekend, claiming that nothing was wrong, but CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta explained it wasn't a typical routine medical exam done every year for presidents.

Speaking Sunday, Dr. Gupta explained that medical issues are typically done by doctors on duty at the White House, and there isn't a need to go to the hospital.

"No question, this sounds a bit unusual," he said. "I mean typically even with this White House, we've gotten plenty of notice in the past that the president was going to be getting a physical exam, that it was going to take place at Walter Reed, which, it has in the past. Everyone institution-wide received noticed, and it doesn't seem like that happened in this case."
