(Bloomberg) -- President Donald Trump said demonstrators protesting against Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination at Senate office buildings are “paid professionals’ backed by financier George Soros.

“The very rude elevator screamers are paid professionals only looking to make Senators look bad,” Trump wrote in a tweet Friday.“Don’t fall for it! Also, look at all of the professionally made identical signs. Paid for by Soros and others. These are not signs made in the basement from love! #Troublemakers.”

Trump didn’t provide any evidence to back up his assertion.
