The United State Senate has confirmed Brett Kavanaugh as a US Supreme Court Judge, following months of deliberations over sexual misconduct allegations made against him.

The voting in the Senate was consistently interrupted by protesters, but it came to a final vote of 50-48.

Kavanaugh will replace associate justice Anthony Kennedy who retired earlier in the year.

Trump has responded to the confirmation, writing on his Twitter:

I applaud and congratulate the U.S. Senate for confirming our GREAT NOMINEE, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, to the United States Supreme Court. Later today, I will sign his Commission of Appointment, and he will be officially sworn in. Very exciting!

      @didi, hope you are not one of those hoping for the prohibition of a woman’s right to choose what to with her own body and for the dismantling universal access to affordable healthcare in the world’s richest-ever country?! Smdh
