Donald Trump Just Basically Endorsed Alleged Pedophile Roy Moore

Trump says Republican Roy Moore must be elected in Alabama

President Donald Trump spoke publicly about embattled Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore for the first time Tuesday, saying of the Republican accused of multiple acts of sexual misconduct: "You have to listen to him also" and "he totally denies it".

The long and short of it is this: Everything Trump said Tuesday afternoon about Moore and the Alabama Senate race runs directly opposite of what the leaders within the national GOP have said in recent weeks.

On Thursday afternoon, November 9, The Washington Post had published a report detailing allegations that Moore, the Republican nominee, pursued sexual relationships with teenagers when he was in his early 30s.

That's disgusting. And it's worse coming from a president repeatedly accused of sexual misconduct, a president who thinks his denial of those charges - like Moore's denial of the charges against him - is good enough.

Chalian said Trump "doesn't want to be crosswise with his base" because Trump knows that all of the energy is with the "Bannon wing", which has "not abandoned Moore".

Trump said he will announce next week whether he will campaign on Moore's behalf.

Young called the accusations against Moore "fake news", but wouldn't take questions.

"If the allegations are true, then he should step aside", Sanders emphasized at the time, adding that Trump did support the RNC's decision to withdraw resources from Moore's campaign.

Later in the gaggle, he reiterated Moore "denies" the claims made against him. "Plus 53% of white women love me!" he denies it, he had a lot to say about his major Democratic opponent, Doug Jones.

More than a dozen women came forward in the waning days of the 2016 presidential election to say that Trump had sexually assaulted or harassed them over the years.

He was also caught on tape in 2005 boasting that he could grab women's private parts. "It's awful on military", Trump said, CNN reports.

DuPré sought to cast doubt on Leigh Corfman, who has said Moore molested her when she was 14 years old. The ad began airing Monday night.

She said she had considered confronting Moore twice before, but did not do it, once because her school-age children were afraid that "they would be castigated in their group".

Moore's camp has begun firing back at the media and one of the accusers.
