President Donald Trump on Monday offered his most explicit endorsement to date of Roy Moore, the embattled Republican Senate candidate in Alabama who stands accused of making unwanted sexual advances on teenagers when he was in his 30s. Moore's campaign had $636,046 on hand. "We need his vote on stopping crime, illegal immigration, Border Wall, Military, Pro Life, V.A., Judges 2nd Amendment and more". One woman told the Washington Post that she was 14 when Moore initiated sexual contact with her.
The schoolgirl-chasing pervert reveled in Trump's endorsement, bragging that the president called him a "fighter" and told him, "Go get 'em Roy". "We don't need a liberal person in there, a Democrat", Trump said.
This comes as the Republican has been targeted by Democrats and the mainstream media for unverified allegations from almost 40 years ago, but Moore is fighting back.
President Trump and Moore also spoke over the phone this morning, with the president expressing "enthusiastic support for Judge Moore's candidacy" according to a statement released by the campaign following the call.
President Donald Trump endorsed Moore Monday.
Even before the allegations surfaced, Moore was a controversial far-right candidate. Beverly Young Nelson accused Moore of sexually assaulting her when she was 16 years old.
"Putting all of that together", Short continued, "(Trump) is encouraging the people of Alabama to make the right decision and also acknowledging that there was not a single Democrat in the United States Senate who supported massive tax relief for the American people, and that would put (Democratic candidate) Doug Jones in a very hard position".
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in mid-November that he believes the women accusing Moore, and that the candidate should step down and let another Republican enter the race.
Fundraising by Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore is lagging behind that of his Democratic rival Doug Jones as Democrats flood the race with money in hopes of stealing a victory as the special election campaign for the seat enters the final stretch.
