Trump: Democrats Have Shifted ‘So Far Left’ That U.S. Will ‘End Up Being Venezuela’


President Trump on Monday said that he expects “a lot of Democrats” to vote Republican in the upcoming midterm elections because of the way Senate Democrats handled Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation proceedings.

“I think a lot of Democrats are going to vote Republican,” Trump said to reporters on the South Lawn before leaving the White House for an event in Orlando, Fla. “The main base of the Democrats have shifted so far left that we’ll end up being Venezuela.”

“I think a lot of Democrats will be voting Republican on November 6,” he said.

Trump called the sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh "a hoax that was set up by the Democrats."

“It was all made up, it was fabricated, and it’s a disgrace,” said the president.

In response to calls to impeach Justice Kavanaugh, Trump replied, "I think it’s an insult to the American public.”

“I think you’re going to see a lot of things happen on Nov. 6 that would not have happened before," he said.

Kavanaugh was confirmed to serve on the Supreme Court on Saturday after the Senate voted 50-48. He is expected to take his seat on the bench on Tuesday.
