Trump Offers Full Support for Embattled Republican Roy Moore

posted on December 1, 2017

The Associated Press’s Nancy Benac reports, “President Donald Trump formally endorsed embattled Republican Roy Moore in the Alabama Senate race on Monday, looking past sexual misconduct allegations against the GOP candidate to argue that Moore’s vote is needed in Congress.” Trump tweeted Monday morning, “Democrats refusal to give even one vote for massive Tax Cuts is why we need Republican Roy Moore to win in Alabama.” Benac writes, “It was Trump’s strongest show of support for Moore since allegations surfaced that the candidate had sexually assaulted teenage girls decades ago, including one who said he molested her when she was 14 and he was in his 30s.”
