Trump said ‘we need Republican Roy Moore to win in Alabama’



President Trump on Monday urged Alabama’s voters to elect Roy Moore, arguing the controversial GOP candidate is needed in the Senate.

“Democrats refusal to give even one vote for massive Tax Cuts is why we need Republican Roy Moore to win in Alabama,” he tweeted.

“We need his vote on stopping crime, illegal immigration, Border Wall, Military, Pro Life, V.A., Judges 2nd Amendment and more,” Trump added of Moore, a former justice for Alabama’s Supreme Court.

Trump also criticized Alabama’s Democratic Senate candidate Doug Jones ahead of the state’s Dec. 12 special election.

“No to Jones, a Pelosi/Schumer Puppet!” he wrote, referencing House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY).

“Putting Pelosi/Schumer Liberal Puppet Jones into office in Alabama would hurt our great Republican Agenda of low on taxes, tough on crime, strong on military and borders…&so much more,” Trump continued. “Look at your 401-k’s since Election. Highest Stock Market EVER! Jobs are roaring back!”

Monday’s tweets from Trump mark the president’s most full-throated endorsement of Moore since sexual misconduct allegations emerged against the Senate candidate last month.

Multiple women last month accused Moore of sexual misconduct, with one woman alleging he initiated a sexual encounter with her in 1979 when she was 14 and he was 32.

A second woman has accused Moore of sexually assaulting her when she was 16, and several other women have claimed he pursued them in his 30s while they were in their teens.

Moore has fiercely denied the allegations against him, insisting that they are politically motivated attacks upon him and his campaign.

Several top Republicans have called on Moore to abandon his campaign, however, and he has also lost fundraising support from the Republican National Committee (RNC).

Jones and Moore are competing over the seat vacated by Jeff Sessions when Trump made him attorney general earlier this year.
