Attorney Gloria Allred (R) and Beverly Young Nelson hold up a picture showing a message and a signature of Roy Moore during a press conference on November 13, 2017, in NY, alledging that Roy Moore sexually assaulted Nelson when she was a minor in Alabama without her consent. There was a little mistake made.
Friday's campaign rally was Trump's first since September, when he went to Alabama to campaign for Senator Luther Strange, who lost the Republican run-off election to Mr Moore.
Commenting on one of his accusers, Beverly Young Nelson, who presented an inscription that she alleges Moore wrote in her years, Moore conceded that "I have written cards, graduation cards".
"We can not afford - this country, the future of this country - can not afford to lose a seat in the very very close United States Senate", Mr Trump said to the approving crowd.
"We can not afford - this country, the future of this country, can not afford to lose a seat in the very, very close United States Senate". Senate Republicans want nothing to do with Moore after The Washington Post published allegations that Moore inappropriately touched a 14-year-old when he was 32, and five other teenagers who say he made advances on them. We can't afford it, folks.
If Moore wins, Shelby said, the Senate will have to weigh his "fitness to serve".More news: Did Kim Kardashian And Kris Jenner Accidentally Confirm Khloé and Kylie's Pregnancies?
"We need somebody in that Senate seat who will vote for our Make America Great Again agenda, which involves tough on crime, strong on borders, strong on immigration", Mr Trump continued.
"I couldn't vote for Roy Moore, I didn't vote for Roy Moore, but I wrote in a distinguished Republican name, and I think a lot of people could do that", Shelby said.
That's why it was so notable when the White House said the president wouldn't explicitly campaign for Moore.
The White House said Trump's Pensacola rally was on the books long before Moore's race got complicated. The US Senate's top Republican on Monday urged scandal-hit conservative Roy Moore to end his Senate campaign, saying he believes the women who have accused the Christian evangelical candidate of sexual misconduct.
