President Trump said in this world you are truly guilty before proven innocent at a media availability before he departed the White House for a rally in a Mississippi.
REPORTER: What do you say to young men in America?
PRESIDENT TRUMP: Say it.
QUESTION: What do you say to young men in America at this moment, and the women?
TRUMP: Well, I say that it's a very scary time for young men in America, when you can be guilty of something that you may not be guilty of. This is a very, very -- this is a very difficult time.
What's happening here has much more to do than even the appointment of a Supreme Court Justice. It really does. You could be somebody that was perfect your entire life, and somebody could accuse you of something. It doesn't necessarily have to be a woman, as everybody say -- but somebody could accuse you of something, and you're automatically guilty.
But in this realm, you are truly guilty until proven innocent. That's one of the very, very bad things that's taking place right now.
QUESTION: Is there a message about this moment in our culture?
TRUMP: Say it.
QUESTION: Is there a message about this moment in our culture for men and women?
TRUMP: There's not a message now, but you might have a message by the end of the week. You may have a message. You're going to see. You're going to see.
But he's an outstanding person. He's an outstanding man. And for his sake and for the sake of his family, I hope he does well. I think he's been very -- I think he's been very brutally treated.
