President Donald Trump says he would have preferred a faster confirmation process for his Supreme Court nominee.

Speaking to reporters at the United Nations Wednesday, Trump says Senate Republicans "could not be nicer" in their treatment of the woman who claims Judge Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in high school.

Said Trump: "They could have pushed it through two and a half weeks ago and you wouldn't be talking about it right now, which is frankly what I would have preferred."

Senate Republicans are bringing in a veteran Arizona prosecutor to handle questioning about the allegations. Asked about the move, Trump said the lawmakers "could not be nicer" and "could not be more respectful."

Trump said he was "OK with that," but again defended Kavanaugh as a "gem."
