Trump attacks opponent of controversial Senate candidate Roy Moore

Donald Trump Dan Coats Ryan Zinke Jim Mattis Rex Tillerson

Moore, a Republican, has faced a litany of sexual misconduct allegations. "I think that'd be better for the country and, you know, the election's in a few weeks here, or in a couple weeks maybe, and, you know, there is a possibility for folks to do write-in candidates, so we'll see but, no, I think it'd be best if he stepped aside", he said. Another woman has accused him of attempted rape when she was 16.

Trump, who has all but endorsed Moore in the special election to fill the seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, slammed Moore's Democratic opponent, Doug Jones, in a tweet early Sunday morning.

If Moore wins the December 12 special election, for the old seat of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has said that the Ethics Committee will investigate the allegations and the Alabamian could face an expulsion vote.

Ronna Romney McDaniel, the chairwoman of the Republican National Committee, said Alabama voters will have to be the "judge and jury" on whether Mr Moore is elected.

"The moral of the story is don't nominate someone like Roy Moore who can actually lose the seat any other Republican could win", the South Carolina Republican told anchor Dana Bash. Because he "is a Schumer/Pelosi puppet who is WEAK on Crime, WEAK on the Border, Bad for our Military and our great Vets, Bad for our 2nd Amendment, AND WANTS TO RAISES TAXES TO THE SKY". "He's run eight races, and this has never come up", Trump said on Tuesday. He totally denies it.

In another tweet, he lamented the defeat of Senator Luther Strange, who Trump endorsed in the September primary vote against Moore. Trump reminded his followers of that fact in a tweet Sunday morning.

Moore has lost almost all support within the party, but Trump appears to be sticking by his man, despite campaigning for his opponent, incumbent Senator "Big Luther" Strange, in the runoff Republican primary.

On Sunday, the president claimed that after he had supported odd, the candidate "shot way up in the polls" - a claim he also made in September - but "it wasn't enough". Why would Jones be worse than an accused sex offender?

Thune said, however, if Moore wins his race "there's going to immediately be an ethics investigation which is going to be a cloud that he'll be operating in". But last week, as he left the White House for Thanksgiving weekend, Trump told reporters that Moore "denies" the allegations and defended his campaign. It's bad on crime. "We get the baggage of him winning and every day the story is a question of whether you believe the women", he said.
