President Trump holds rare solo news conference

The Republican Party's woman problem is in the spotlight

And he warned that the country was adopting a new, "dangerous standard" of justice, in which "you are guilty until proven innocent".

Pompeo said the USA has evidence that United Nations sanctions, particularly those restricting North Korean oil imports and coal exports, are being violated and he demanded that United Nations members ensure they are respected.

Ford and Kavanaugh are both scheduled to testify to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday (local time). Not a very good one. but he's a Democrat lawyer.

Fed raises rates for 3rd time this year with another expected
The U.S. central bank is now forecasting another rate hike in December, three more in 2019 and possibly even one more in 2020. With risks described as roughly balanced, the statement left the Fed on a steady course for the next year.

And a year after warning that North Korea's Kim Jong Un was on a "suicide mission" by pursuing his own atomic agenda, Trump instead said this phrase ahead of a planned second summit with the youthful leader: "I would like to thank Chairman Kim for his courage and for the steps he has taken".

Asked whether the three women accusing Kavanaugh of sexual assault are lying, he said, "I won't get into that game", saying instead that he would make up his mind upon hearing the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford before the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday. "I can only say that what they've done to this man is incredible".

There's no sense of what the president may address, but the conference follows Trump's first time as cahir of the U.N. Security Council meeting, where he reiterated his heavy criticism of Iran and accused China of "attempting to interfere" with the 2018 USA midterm elections.

Trump began his Tuesday address to the United Nations by ticking off a list of his administration's domestic accomplishments and statistics about the USA economy typical for a campaign rally in rural America but an unusual approach at the UN. After Kavanaugh appeared on Fox News to plead his case Monday, Trump expressed concerns that he did not defend himself more vigorously.

"But since they later told their close family members and friends that they were able to feel the sincerity of the South Korean president's speech, the North Korean authorities are concerned about this", he said.

"Republican senators have delayed this for weeks now", Trump said. But in recent days, Trump has steadily ramped up his rhetoric about the accusers - much more than the Senate Republicans who will ultimately decide Kavanaugh's fate. "It's a very tough situation for a woman; there's no question about it", he said.

Trump insisted he was never ridiculed by leaders on the world stage, dismissing reports that he was laughed at during his address to the U.N. General Assembly as "fake news". "They were laughing with me".

Trump allowed that he'd heard "a little rustle" as he began reciting US economic gains under his watch, but he insisted: "They weren't laughing at me". We were doing it together.

As he builds a case for his innocence, Mr Kavanaugh plans to turn over to the committee calendars from the summer of 1982. Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington , U.S., September 4, 2018.

Trump, who has long loved sparring with the media, seemed especially engaged on Wednesday, bashing the "fake news" with one breath and praising reporters with another.
