President Donald Trump on Monday branded sexual assault allegations threatening to bring down his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as "totally political."

Trump reaffirmed his support for Kavanaugh at the United Nations in New York, calling Kavanaugh "outstanding," and adding, "I am with him all the way."

He spoke as Kavanaugh's nomination appeared in peril after The New Yorker published the account of a second woman who says he exposed himself to her while they were students at Yale. The woman said Kavanaugh forced her to come in contact with his penis while both were inebriated at a party.

"There's a chance that this could be one of the single most unfair, unjust things to happen to a candidate, but I am with Judge Kavanaugh," Trump said. "In my opinion, it's totally political."

The first accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, has said Kavanaugh assaulted her in high school. She says he covered her mouth and tried to remove her clothing. Ford and Kavanaugh are expected to testify on Thursday.

Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.
