President Trump on Roy Moore: 'He totally denies it'

The White House wants to see a Republican elected to the U.S. Senate from Alabama to help pass a tax overhaul bill, a senior adviser said on Monday, indicating a possible shift toward supporting candidate Roy Moore, who has been accused of pursuing teenage girls when he was in his 30s.

"We don't need a liberal person in there, a Democrat, Jones".

At first Trump offered a standard attack on Jones as "terrible on borders, bad on the military". "And by the way, he totally denies it". Two have accused him of assault or molestation, accusations that he has vehemently denied.

Trump said he would tell reporters next week whether he planned to campaign with Moore. "He's run eight races, and this has never come up", he said.

"I have no reason to doubt these young women", Attorney General Jeff Sessions said last week in his testimony to the House Judiciary Committee. Luther Strange (R-AL). Bannon endorsed and campaigned for Moore, who ended up thumping Strange.

George HW Bush said to have called Trump a 'blowhard'
Criticism between the Bush family and President Trump has gone both ways. "George Bush grew up thinking about the greater good". He went on to say that the current president is driven by a "certain ego" rather than civic duty.

Trump has been mum on Moore because he's been busy handling issues of interest; like arguing with a college basketball player's father, and major defense issues like whether everyone in the NFL stood for the national anthem.

Putting aside Trump's sudden decision to defend Moore and go after his opponent, it's much more surprising that he suggested he might be headed south to campaign for the Ayatollah of Alabama (it's hard to imagine why he would say that's a topic he would be "letting you know [about] next week" if he's not).

Dean Young, Moore's campaign adviser, said that Alabamiams can not elect Doug "the liberal Democrat" Jones because he will back judges who support partial-birth abortions.

"By the way, he gives a total denial, and I do have to say 40 years is a long time. Nobody ever says his name, and they pretend that he's some kind of conservative Democrat in Alabama, and he's not". He's weak on crime, weak on borders. Richard Shelby of Alabama, who said he would "absolutely not" vote for Moore. "He is awful for property owners". "The women are Trump voters". Republicans have a slim 52-48 majority in the Senate.

I mean, Roy Moore denies it. And I think it's very, very good for women. "Forty years is a long time", Trump said, pointing to the amount of time that has passed since the alleged behavior.
