“Mr Trump’s remarks came as he reiterated his support for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who is currently facing sexual misconduct allegations by several women.
A vote to confirm Mr Kavanaugh has been delayed as the FBI investigates the claims, which he denies.
Asked about young women, the president said, however: “Women are doing great.”
“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,” Mr Trump told reporters. “This is a very difficult time.”
“You could be somebody that was perfect your entire life and somebody could accuse you of something – doesn’t necessarily have to be a woman – but somebody could accuse you of something and you’re automatically guilty.”

What is the boy crisis?
It’s a crisis of education. Worldwide, boys are 50 percent less likely than girls to meet basic proficiency in reading, math, and science.
It’s a crisis of mental health. ADHD is on the rise. And as boys become young men, their suicide rates go from equal to girls to six times that of young women.
It’s a crisis of fathering. Boys are growing up with less-involved fathers and are more likely to drop out of school, drink, do drugs, become delinquent, and end up in prison.
It’s a crisis of purpose. Boys’ old sense of purpose—being a warrior, a leader, or a sole breadwinner—are fading. Many bright boys are experiencing a “purpose void,” feeling alienated, withdrawn, and addicted to immediate gratification.
So, what is The Boy Crisis? A comprehensive blueprint for what parents, teachers, and policymakers can do to help our sons become happier, healthier men, and fathers and leaders worthy of our respect.
