Roy Moore thanks Trump in new fundraising appeal

Roy Moore thanks Trump in new fundraising appeal

"It's about the character of our country", he said. The comments were later included in an ad by Moore's Democratic opponent, Doug Jones.

"The last thing we need in Alabama and the U.S. Senate 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", Trump tweeted on Sunday morning.

Moore and Jones are opponents in a special election to fill the Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions to become the USA attorney general.

McConnell reportedly has pleaded with Trump to stay out of the Alabama race, lest Moore's election sully the party's name ahead of next year's midterm elections. "It is not about electing Republicans vs. Democrats". At least five others have said he pursued romantic relationships when they were teenagers. Moore has denied the allegations.

While Trump has not officially sided with Moore, he noted that Moore has denied the accusations of sexual misconduct against teens.

Trump has no campaign events for Moore schedule at this time, said White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters.

Trump's position stands in stark contrast to that of the Republican establishment, including the Senate leadership, many of whom have called on Moore to drop out of the race. "I would like to see the president come out and do what we've done, saying Moore should step aside", Thune said.

But Graham said when it comes to Moore, it's unclear "what winning looks like".

"We were advised that he was being suspended from the mall because he would hang around the young girls that worked in the stores and, you know, really got into a place of where they say he was harassing".

Meanwhile, the Democrat in the Senate race is spotlighting Moore's accusers in a new ad.

In an interview with John Catsimatidis on AM 970 in New York, Ms McDaniel said the claims against Mr Moore are concerning - but that Alabama officials have maintained he can not be replaced on the ballot. But other party leaders have made a different choice.

Trump backed incumbent Sen.

UPDATE 9:35 AM ET: The president sent out an additional tweet noting that he originally endorsed Luther Strange in the GOP primary while reiterating that he wanted Jones to be defeated.

The president also told amid a scrum of cameras that he isn't ready to announce whether he'll campaign for Moore as the December 12 special election looms.
