An aide to McConnell says the Kentucky senator and President “speak all the time” but he “doesn’t have any read-outs” of their conversations.
Kavanaugh has categorically denied Ford’s allegations of assault.
“This is a completely and totally false allegation,” he said after Ford came forward last week. “I have never done anything like what the accuser describes — to her or to anyone.”
Friday evening at a rally in Missouri, the President also said Republicans have to fight for Kavanaugh, and that women will back that approach.
“We have to fight for him, not worried about the other side,” he said. “And by the way, women are for that more than anyone would understand.”
Trump has not tweeted criticism of Ford since Friday.
