WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump said on Friday he had not thought “even a little bit” about alternatives if the Senate does not approve his nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh.

He called the hearing an incredible moment in the history of the country, but suggested he was not involving himself in the Senate’s negotiations. “I’m going to let the Senate handle that. They’ll make their decisions,” Trump told reporters at the White House.
