Montgomery, AL - President Donald Trump endorsed embattled Republican Roy Moore in the Alabama Senate race on Monday, looking past sexual misconduct allegations against the GOP candidate to argue that his vote is needed in Congress.

Trump tweeted early Monday that “Democrats refusal to give even one vote for massive Tax Cuts is why we need Republican Roy Moore to win in Alabama.”

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. Many national Republicans have called on Moore to step aside in the wake of multiple sexual assault and harassment allegations.

Trump also assailed Moore’s Democratic rival Doug Jones, tweeting that “Putting a Pelosi/Schumer Liberal Puppet Jones into office in Alabama would hurt our great Republican Agenda of low on taxes, tough on crime, strong on military and borders…& so much more.”

Trump for weeks was silent after the allegations against Moore surfaced, and the White House has said he had no plans to make campaign appearances before the Dec. 12 election. But Trump in recent days has raised doubts about the allegations against Moore, and he has agreed to headline a campaign-style rally in Pensacola, Florida — less than 20 miles from the Alabama border — just four days before the Alabama election.

And Trump tweeted of Moore on Monday: “We need his vote on stopping crime, illegal immigration, Border Wall, Military, Pro Life, V.A., Judges 2nd Amendment and more. No to Jones, a Pelosi/Schumer Puppet!”

White House legislative director Marc Short told CNN that Trump was “making the case to the people of Alabama that it’s a factor to consider that not one Democrat has been able to find time to say they support” the GOP tax plan.

Short said Trump’s point is that “when allegations arise 38 years later, when Roy Moore has been a very public figure for those 38 years, he’s run multiple times statewide in Alabama, the people in Alabama have an opportunity to choose and make some decisions about Roy Moore’s character. Putting all that together, he’s encouraging the people of Alabama to make the right decision.”

Very different accusations and not similar

1) this is with minors
2) not in the porn industry where flirting and touching is the norm
3) Moore went out seeking his victims . They were not in his office
4) touching is not as bad as the actual action although both very bad .

I still hope Moore wins as a victory is always good . I then hope that after his win he is removed and another republican takes his place . That's the best outcome

Judge Moore is innocent and deserves to win!

Though I have still not yet made up my mind regarding Mr. Conyers, neither of these two has been accused of felony sexual assault of a minor.This is not a political issue. This is decency issue. Party affiliation has absolutely nothing to do with this.

If not for the democratic shmutz your mayflower descendant from russia or another small town in poland would not have been born because your mayflower ancestor would have marched in birkenau and inhaled zyklon B. The Republican or rather the conservatives wanted Jews in america as much people want cockroaches and in 1939 a fine conservative specimen in switzerland U.S. consul placed every obstacle for Jewish immigrants.

That’s because you keep on calling for it even when the subject matter does not remotely call for parallel equivalence or distinction. You got us all covered.

You remind me of Republican spinsters who feel it’s important to keep in reminding the African community that the Democrats were the party of slavery. It makes no different how the party defined itself decades ago. What matters is how they currently and reliably define themselves.

Moore is an ol-fashioned evangelical white supremicist bigot. The likes of him went inro the sewer when George Wallace had his segregationist 'careet' ended by a neo-nazi. Why even an alt-yid would even consider this bum is electable is disgusting.

You do know that tax payer money was used to pay off his settlement of sexual harassment. If that doesn't say guilty I don't know what does.

Fresh out of the morning news, more women accuse Conyers. So I ask again, when will he resign?
