President Trump said in an exclusive interview with Judge Jeanine Pirro that he was "shocked" to see Alaska Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski fail to vote 'yea' on the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

In what is known as a "pairing" in Congressional jargon, Murkowski voted "present" to honor the would-be "yea" vote of Sen. Steve Daines (R-Mont.), who was instead attending his daughter's wedding.

"I think it will go down as a sad day for her because he's going to become a great Supreme Court justice," Trump said of Murkowski.

He called her vote "disgraceful" and added that he appreciated West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin crossing the aisle and becoming the only Democrat to support Kavanaugh's nomination.

"The people of Alaska -- I had tremendous success in Alaska," Trump said.

He added that he worked with Alaskan lawmakers to approve natural resources drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge or ANWR.
