Trump Defends Roy Moore Amid Sexual Assault Allegations: 'He Totally Denies It'

He says of the Alabama race: "We don't need a liberal person in there".

He pointed out that Roy Moore "totally denies" sexual misconduct with a string of teenage girls, including a 14-year-old, when he was in his 30s. "He says it didn't happen and you have to listen to him, also".

Trump signaled his support for Moore by saying he has looked at Democrat Doug Jones' record and, "it's bad on crime, it's awful on the border, it's bad on the military". "We don't need somebody who's soft on crime like Jones".

Asked if she was favoring a vote for Moore, Conway said: "We want the votes in the Senate to get this tax bill". Top Republicans have called for Moore to leave the race, and initially the White House indicated Moore should step aside if the allegations were true. That's some law-and-order guy all right.

Trump additionally failed to rule out the possibility that he might campaign for Moore. An appearance by the president did not work out too well for his original Alabama Senate candidate, Luther Strange. Two have accused him of assault or molestation; he vehemently denies it.

He continued, "But Donald Trump didn't seem to see a problem of being on the side of neo-Nazis and now he apparently doesn't see a problem with being on the side of the accused child predator". And I think it's very, very good for women. "I just want everybody to know Doug Jones". "But I think all of us are grateful now that there is a new day for women in the workplace where they do not have to put up with sexual advances that are unwanted, that they do not have to live and work in a hostile environment and that's going to be good for all of us in the workplace". Speaking on Sunday, Speier said that an investigation into Franken needs to run its course before making any decision on whether he should be expelled.

"40 years is a long time", President Trump said, questioning why it took so long for Mr Moore's accusers to come forward.

Trump's position is a break from that of other national Republicans. That if Moore says he didn't do these things, then he must not have. Jeff Flake, who has been critical of Trump and is retiring in 2018, said Monday.

After having been burned by backing the establishment-endorsed candidate in the Alabama Senate primary over Roy Moore, Donald Trump isn't making the same "mistake" twice.
