            Donald Trump won this Saturday a hard-fought victory with the confirmation of his candidate for the Supreme Court,
Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who will satisfy his conservative electorate to a month of risky elections.

Short majority

The US Senate approved Saturday the appointment of Conservative Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court after a chaotic confirmation process marked by accusations of sexual assault against the magistrate when he was young.

Brett Kavanaugh, who categorically denied these accusations, won a narrow majority (50-48), offering a major political victory to President Donald Trump who should put progressive judges in the minority for many years in the highest court.
