    President Donald Trump defended his widely criticized mocking of Christine Blasey Ford, who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, in an interview on "60 Minutes" Sunday, NBC News reported.

    "If I had not made that speech, we would not have won," he said.

    The Senate narrowly confirmed Kavanaugh to the court last week after an extraordinarily bitter battle. Ford testified that Kavanaugh assaulted her when they were in high school during the 1980s, telling the Senate Judiciary Committee that she thought she would "accidentally be killed." Kavanaugh strenuously denied the allegation.

    "I was just saying she didn't seem to know anything," Trump said in the CBS interview, having described at a rally how she didn't remember key details of the decades-old allegation.
