‘Why didn’t someone call the FBI 36 years ago?’: Trump targets Kavanaugh accuser at Vegas rally

Published

on

While at his Thursday rally in Las Vegas, President Donald Trump insulted the testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who accused Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault.

During a live interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, Trump said there should be no more delay in Kavanaugh’s hearing.

“I think is a sad situation, he is an outstanding person,” Trump said.

Trump continued, “Frankly, Sean, to see what is going on is very, very sad. Why didn’t somebody call the FBI 36 years ago? You could also say when did this all happen, what is going on? To take a man like this — with that being said, let her have her say and let’s see how it all works out.”

Watch his rally live below.

After smearing Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) as anti-Semitic—-and letting the crowd at his Greenville, North Carolina rally roar "send her back!" for more than 10 seconds -- President Donald Trump was forced to distance himself from the chant.

He falsely claimed that he'd continued his speech immediately after the crowd started yelling. On Friday, the New York Times reported that Trump was under intense pressure by his daughter, Ivanka, and Vice President Mike Pence, to disavow the chants.

Writing in the Washington Post, columnist Greg Sargent lays out why "send her back" makes Republicans so nervous, when they seem perfectly fine with radical immigration policies like zero-tolerance and the separation of kids from their parents, which are applied to non-white asylum seekers.

Human rights advocates said the Trump administration would be making a "catastrophic" and "grave error" if it followed through on a newly-reported proposal to slash refugee admissions to zero next year.

"It is beyond shameful and a new low, even for this administration, to even consider accepting no refugees to the U.S.," said Ryan Mace, grassroots advocacy and refugee specialist for Amnesty International USA.
