Roy Moore thanks Trump for endorsement amid underage sexual assault accusations

Roy Moore thanks Trump for endorsement amid underage sexual assault accusations

Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, whom multiple women have accused of sexual misconduct, claimed in an interview published Monday that "immorality" in politics has "sunken to a new low". Colorado Republican Cory Gardner, who is heading Senate Republicans' 2018 campaign efforts, has said that if Moore wins he should be expelled from the Senate.

Trump tweeted early Monday morning that the "Democrats refusal to give even one vote" for the GOP's Tax Bill is the reason for supporting the much-maligned Moore. "We need his vote on stopping crime, illegal immigration, Border Wall, Military, Pro Life, V.A., Judges 2nd Amendment and more", Trump tweeted in support of a candidate the Republican National Committee pulled its funding from.

"In a statement, the White House said that Mr. Trump and Mr. Moore spoke on the phone and that the president endorsed Mr. Moore's campaign".

The schoolgirl-chasing pervert reveled in Trump's endorsement, bragging that the president called him a "fighter" and told him, "Go get 'em Roy". "Because there are groups that don't want me in the United States Senate", Moore said, before accusing the Democratic Party and the Republican establishment of working together, in November. After the report, another woman came forward to accuse Moore of sexually assaulting her when she was 16. He did note, however, that Moore has "totally" denied the allegations against him. Donald Trump has been hinting for some time that Moore is not only not guilty of child molestation, but that he is the best thing for Alabama and America.

She said: "There are a couple of issues, some differences do remain which require further negotiation and consultation". Officials said he was preparing to call round European Union leaders to get agreement on trade negotiations.

"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".

The full-throated support from the president comes with just eight days until the state's special election to fill the seat left empty when Jeff Sessions became attorney general.Trump defended Moore last month against the allegations of sexual misconduct.

Trump's move runs counter to many other Republican leaders who have repudiated Moore and called on him to exit the race. But on Sunday, he said the people of Alabama should "make the call" on Moore.
