Trump wants three times the $1.6 billion the Senate is considering for the wall in a bill funding the Department of Homeland Security. Trump said. "Now was that the worst body language".

On the campaign trail Trump insisted Mexico would pay for the wall.

The Kentucky Republican told The Associated Press in an interview Wednesday that that it would be "very, very hard to unseat the president in the primary".

While their chances in the House are still seen as good, Republicans are feeling better about the upper chamber. Jeff Flake of Arizona, are considering challenging Trump in 2020.

McConnell said that "would be a waste of time frankly". Shortly afterwards, the U.S. high court came to order with the traditional call of "Hear ye, hear ye, hear ye".

Two other women accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct dating to the 1980s. Kavanaugh emphatically denied the allegations.

"Seriously, Hillary?" was the reaction of Republican Congressman Steve Scalise, who was seriously wounded previous year when a shooter - who was a registered Democrat - targeted a Congressional Republican baseball practice in Virginia.

Lisa Murkowski for voting against Brett Kavanaugh.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has declined to blame Democratic Sen.

Ford had asked for confidentiality in a letter to Feinstein. Feinstein has denied that she or her staff leaked the accusation.

He has already hired four women to serve as his Supreme Court clerks, something that he noted Monday evening was a first, and has studied the legal briefs for the cases on deck.

The president repeatedly touted the lifting of the ethanol restrictions during his hour-long rally and reiterated his support for the farmers of Iowa.

At Northwestern University, associate general counsel Sarah Wake said that since the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings, she has observed a significant increase in student reports of past sexual misconduct to the Office of Equity. "She's about as strong as you can possibly be in Alaska". "Nobody's gonna beat her".

In similar news, a national survey conducted October 1-2 by Rasmussen found that 65 percent of likely US voters thought the Senate's handling of Kavanaugh's nomination was "poor". She voted "present" in the actual confirmation vote.
