US President Donald Trump has mocked the #MeToo movement as he intensified his criticism of the campaign against sexual harassment and assault, which almost hit his Supreme Court pick Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Instead, Trump changed the expression to "The person who got away". Trump was likely referring to a Frank Sinatra song titled The Gal That Got Away, which was his cover of a song called The Man That Got Away from a 1954 film, according to HuffPost.

The president commented that Pennsylvania was considered the state that Republicans always tried to win in presidential elections, reminding supporters that they helped him win the state.

Trump defended his presence at the rally, saying there were "thousands of people" lined up and waiting to hear him speak. "They would say 'Did you hear what President Trump said?' 'Did you hear what he said?'"
