UNITED NATIONS, - US President Donald Trump on Tuesday questioned the credibility of the second woman to accuse Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, saying she admitted she was drunk at a dormitory party where the alleged behavior occurred.

The woman, Deborah Ramirez, accused Kavanaugh in an article published in the New Yorker magazine on Sunday of exposing himself to her at a drunken party during the 1983-84 academic year at Yale University.

"He was so truthful," Trump said about the judge’s interview on Fox News on Monday in which he denied the accusations. "He’s a high quality person, he’s a great intellect," Trump said in remarks to reporters at the United Nations, accusing Democrats of portraying Kavanaugh as someone he is not.
