Trump will have an additional opportunity to celebrate the confirmation Monday evening when he and Kavanaugh participate in a ceremonial swearing-in ceremony at the White House at 7:00 p.m. Protests grew following numerous allegations against the judge regarding sexual assault as well as evidence that he committed perjury during his confirmation hearings and a partisan tirade in which he claimed "the left" orchestrated the allegations and threatened, "What goes around comes around".

This week alone, he's expected to hold rallies in Iowa, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Kentucky. Chris Coons, D-Del., on NBC's "Meet the Press".

Democrats had fought tooth and nail to stop Kavanaugh's candidacy, claiming that the accomplished, conservative-minded judge was not suited to the Supreme Court.
