President Trump announced a new trade deal between the United States, Mexico, and Canada that would replace the 1994 NAFTA trade agreement. He said it was a great deal that would benefit the U.S. and North America as a whole, but that he did not rule out potential push-back from Congress, whose approval is required in order to ratify the agreement. After opening up the press conference to questions, the topic shifted to the confirmation process of Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh. The president answered questions about reported White House guidance of a week-long FBI investigation into sexual assault allegations against Judge Kavanaugh, as well as statements the judge made during his confirmation hearings about his drinking habits in high school and college.
