Donald Trump tweeted a message on Wednesday evening that he has “heard” about a Republican senator’s plans to vote against Kavanaugh.
He wrote that he will “take action” on the Senate’s decision.
He did not say when the vote will take place.
It was not clear whether he meant the senator’s position on the case or his support for Trump.
But he wrote: “I heard about it.
I will act on it.”
It is the first time Trump has spoken publicly about the case in nearly a week, and his comments follow a flurry of news that has raised questions about whether his administration can continue to govern on Capitol Hill.
Trump has repeatedly accused the media of leaking his plans, which have been called into question by the media.
“We are being targeted,” he told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Wednesday.
“You can call it what you want.
It’s a very big problem.”
The White House and Republicans have long dismissed Trump’s concerns about the news media, calling it a Democratic plot to undermine Trump’s presidency.
But the president has now come out against the idea that Republicans should be able to block the nomination.
On Wednesday, Trump told Fox that Republicans would try to stop the nomination from going forward.
“I’m sure they’re going to try to obstruct, because I think that’s a good thing, because they’re not going to get it done,” he said.
“And we’re going get it right.
But I think it’s a pretty good thing.”
Republicans have said they will oppose any effort to filibuster a nomination.
Sen. Thom Tillis, a North Carolina Republican who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, tweeted that he is opposed to the Republican leader’s actions.
“President Trump needs to be more clear about his actions in the Senate, and what they mean for the future of his presidency,” he tweeted.
The tweet came after Sen. Bob Corker, a Tennessee Republican who is the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, announced on Twitter that he would oppose the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh.
The Senate Judiciary committee will hold a hearing on the nomination next week.
Corker has come under fire from the left, who said he did not speak out against Kavanaugh’s nomination because he was concerned that it would lead to another Trump confirmation.
He also said he believed Trump had the right to fire him, though the president is not under oath.
