WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump and Republican allies are using the swirl of sexual misconduct allegations around Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to try to stoke support among men — and counter energized Democratic women.

With his Supreme Court nominee under threat from a sexual assault allegation that has triggered painful national soul-searching about gender politics and sexual consent, Trump is siding firmly with men, declaring this "a scary time" for them.

His comments come as Republicans stare down a challenging midterm election cycle powered by Democratic women energized by the #MeToo movement and opposition to Trump's presidency.
