Kavanaugh and his law clerks already have been at the Supreme Court preparing for his first day on the bench Tuesday, when the justices will hear arguments in two cases about longer prison terms for repeat offenders.
Mr Kavanaugh's elevation to the high court had been considered safe until California university professor Christine Blasey Ford went public with explosive allegations that he had sexually assaulted her in 1982, while they were in high school.
Kavanaugh's confirmation gave the Republican president a major political victory ahead of crucial November 6 congressional elections, with Trump's second selection for the nation's highest judicial body. Conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch joined the court past year.
The high court now has five conservative justices and four liberals.
With all the sitting justices in attendance, along with Kavanaugh's family and top admiration officials, Trump said Kavanaugh had been the victim of a "campaign of political and personal destruction based on lies and deception".
He also thanked Senate Majority LeaderMitch McConnell and Senator Chuck Grassley for their unwavering support and strong leadership during the confirmation process.
"Everybody just smiled because they knew if it had been a Republican president and a Democratic Senate, they wouldn't have filled a vacancy", he said.
Kavanaugh, in turn, attacked the Dem senators on the Senate Judiciary Committee for what he called an orchestrated "hit" meant to exact revenge for the Clintons, warning the Dems on the committee "what goes around comes around".
McConnell's remarks were viewed as a signal that he would be open to filling a potential Supreme Court vacancy in 2020.

But Ford gave an emotional and what people on both sides called credible testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Kavanaugh's wife and two daughters were in seats reserved for justices' guests, along with retired Justice Anthony Kennedy.
After an extra Federal Bureau of Investigation probe－which media reports say was drastically curtailed by the White House－also found nothing new, Kavanaugh was finally voted into the coveted post.
