President Trump on Monday stood by his embattled Supreme Court nominee amid accusations of sexual assault, calling Brett Kavanaugh one of the “finest people that I have ever known” while acknowledging a "little delay" may be necessary before the nomination is voted on in the Senate.

In his first public comments on the controversy, the president also criticized Democrats over the timing of the allegation.

“I wish the Democrats could have done this a lot sooner because they had this information for many months," Trump told reporters at the White House. "And they shouldn't have waited until literally the last days. They should have done it a lot sooner.”

The president indicated he’s open to delaying the confirmation proceedings in Congress while the allegations are investigated.

"If it takes a little delay it'll take a little delay," Trump said. "It shouldn't certainly be very much."

The Senate Judiciary Committee has been scheduled to vote on Kavanaugh’s confirmation Thursday, but Democrats have called for that to be postponed.

Trump called it a “ridiculous question" when asked if Kavanaugh has offered to withdraw his nomination.

"You’re talking about an individual who is as high a quality individual as you will ever see," Trump said.
