Alabama Democrat shrugs off Trump's criticism

He told reporters that we didn't need a "liberal Democrat" in that Senate seat and said that Moore "totally denies" the allegations that he had pursued sexual relationships with teenage girls when he was in his 30s.

The Republican, who has been accused of child sex abuse, is running against Democrat Doug Jones to fill Alabama's Senate seat. This morning Trump tweeted a scathing attack on Moore's Democratic rival, Doug Jones, calling him a "Schumer/Pelosi puppet who is WEAK on Crime, WEAK on the border", the Hill reports.

Conway did say that Trump won't be joining Moore on the campaign trail in Alabama, so ... that's something. Robert Bentley, in the primary, moving to support Moore only after odd lost. In the tweet, Trump criticized Jones as "WEAK" and "a disaster" and claimed Jones would raise taxes "TO THE SKY".

Many members of Trump's Republican Party have withdrawn support for Moore, with some Republicans suggesting that Moore is elected to the US Senate, he should be removed.

"I would like to see the President come out and do what we've done, saying Moore should step aside", he said. Moore has denied the allegations. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), said "that's a political decision by the president and he's definitely trying to throw a lifeline to Roy Moore".

Trump said he was "very happy" that women are speaking out about their experiences. He denied it. A tape was also released catching him boasting in 2005 that he could grab women's private parts with impunity.




On Saturday, the New York Times reported that Trump has expressed his frustration that his daughter, top White House aid Ivanka Trump, publicly denounced the embattled Senate-hopeful. Moore, however, has insisted that he is innocent of the charges.

But Graham said when it comes to Moore, it's unclear "what winning looks like". "Forty years is a long time", Trump said, pointing to the amount of time that has passed since the alleged behavior.

The following day, he advised that he'd spoken to Moore for the first time.

The allegations, including claims that the 70-year-old Moore sexually assaulted or molested two teenage girls while he was in his 30s, have made the December 12 election a referendum on "the character of the country" that transcends partisan politics, said GOP Sen.

The campaign quoted two former restaurant employees and a former customer who said they did not remember Nelson working there or Moore eating there.
