Washington: US President Donald Trump publicly mocked Christine Blasey Ford, the professor who has alleged that she was sexually assaulted by his Supreme Court nominee Justice Brett Kavanaugh some 36 years ago.

Impersonating Ford, who testified before a Senate Judiciary Committee last week with her allegations, Trump on Tuesday said that the woman accuser only remembered that she had one beer and nothing else.

Trump, in his address to his supporters in Mississippi raised doubts over the allegations of Ford, as a result of which the lives of Kavanaugh is in tatters, he said.

"36 years ago, this happened," said the president as he was referring to the alleged party in a house in Maryland where Ford alleges she was sexually assaulted by Kavanaugh. Thereafter Trump imitated Ford's question and answer session at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing last week.

"How did you get home? I don't remember. How'd you get there? I don't remember. Where is the place? I don't remember. How many years ago was it? I don't know," Trump said mocking Ford.

"What neighbourhood was it in? I don't know. Where's the house?' I don't know. Upstairs, downstairs, where was it?' I don't know, but I had one beer. That's the only thing I remember," Trump said amid cheering and laughter from his supporters

The allegations, he said, had a great impact on Judge Kavanaugh. "A man's life is in tatters. His wife is shattered," he said and alleged that the Democrats are behind this. "They destroy people. They want to destroy people. These are really evil people," Trump said.
