President Donald Trump threw his support behind controversial Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore on Monday morning, tweeting that “we need Republican Roy Moore to win” in order to help push through the president’s agenda.
Trump has previously weighed in on the Alabama Senate race by strongly criticizing Moore’s Democratic opponent. He also told reporters in late November that Moore “says it didn’t happen” and “you have to listen to him also,” in reference to allegations that Moore molested a 14-year-old girl while he was in his 30s.
Multiple women have accused Moore of making passes at them while they were teenagers and he was much older and several have alleged he acted sexually inappropriately with them. A slew of Republicans have called on Moore to drop out of the race.
Democrats refusal to give even one vote for massive Tax Cuts is why we need Republican Roy Moore to win in Alabama. 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!

Full throated presidential endorsement for @MooreSenate, who has been credibly accused by Alabama women of sexually molesting a 14 year old and of sexually assaulting a 16 year old. https://t.co/GsQeO2rcuH
