Trump: “…in This Realm, You’re Truly Guilty Until Proven Innocent”

President Trump speaks out for his Supreme Court justice nominee, as Brett Kavanaugh struggles through a new FBI investigation. What President Donald Trump and everyone involved, thought was going to be an easy nomination from the Republican party, has turned into an unfortunate nightmare for Brett and the Kavanaugh family.

It can be seen on the news and read on site after site, how the allegation alone has caused the emotional tragedy that it has to these people. It makes one wonder- how would I feel if it were me? What would I do? What could I say to disprove an allegation from 30+ years ago in my life? It was a lifetime ago. It is hard to deny how unfair it is that such agony be endured by an entire family, so publicly, based on an allegation.

Trump Has Kavanaugh’s Back

It is exactly this reason that prompted President Trump on October 2, 2018, while boarding the Marine One to say of Kavanaugh, “guilty until proven innocent.” This prompted one reporter to ask, “What would you say to young men in America?” In which Donald Trump replied, “Well, I’d say that it’s a very scary time for young men in America when you can be guilty of something you may not be guilty of. This is a very difficult time.”

He went on to say, “What is happening here has much more to do than even the appointment of a Supreme Court justice. It really does. You could be somebody who was perfect your entire life, and somebody could accuse you of something. Doesn’t necessarily have to be a woman, as everybody says, but somebody could accuse you of something, and you’re automatically guilty. But in this realm, you’re truly guilty until proven innocent. That’s one of the very, very bad things that’s taking place right now.”

Trump Concerned for American People

While President Donald Trump is concerned about his appointment of Brett Kavanaugh to be a Supreme Court justice, he is indeed more concerned about the young men of our time. In turn, though overlooked, he voices his concern for everyone - man or woman - being accused of a crime and being found guilty without due process.

When a simple, unsubstantiated, accusation against a person can mark you as guilty before truly being proven guilty, it is “a scary time.”
