Brett Kavanaugh hearings: Trump challenges Supreme Court nominee's accuser

Our panel of journalists look at the US president questioning the credibility of the woman who accuses his Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, of sexually assaulting her while they were teenagers. Donald Trump asks why the FBI wasn’t called at the time if the sexual assault was "as bad as she claims", and feels they should just get on with the nomination. We also discuss the South Korean president's visit to Pyongyang for an historic inter-Korean summit, and Turkey and Syria’s deal on Idlib.
