President Trump discounts accusations against Roy Moore

President Trump discounts accusations against Roy Moore

Trump, speaking to reporters at the White House before leaving Washington for Florida, left open the possibility of campaigning for Moore, saying he would make an announcement on that next week. "We don't need a liberal person in there, a Democrat, Jones", said the president.

Six women have accused Mr Moore of pursuing romantic relationships with them when they were teenagers and he was an assistant district attorney in his 30s.

That's disgusting. And it's worse coming from a president repeatedly accused of sexual misconduct, a president who thinks his denial of those charges - like Moore's denial of the charges against him - is good enough.

Trump said he will announce next week whether he will campaign on Moore's behalf.

But that's not what's impacting Trump's decision to maintain his support for Moore. Of course not and let's not forget that Moore has denied the allegations even though many have claimed that Moore's pursuit of underaged women was widely known throughout the state.

Regardless of those details, the president was clear in his statement of support for Moore, in light of the possibility of losing Alabama's Senate seat to the Democrats.

Trump's comments come the day after his senior adviser Kellyanne Conway appeared on Fox News to say pretty much the same thing.

More than a dozen women came forward at the end of the 2016 presidential election to say that Mr Trump had sexually assaulted or harassed them over the years. He denied it. He was also caught on tape in 2005 boasting that he could grab women's private parts.

That's a huge break from where McConnell and the rest of the Republican establishment are on the Moore issue - and where they hoped Trump would be. Jeff Flake, who has been critical of Trump and is retiring in 2018, said Monday. Ivanka Trump said there's a special place in hell for people who prey on children. White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders has said the administration's position is that all of Trump's accusers are lying.

One of them, Leigh Corfman, said she was 14 years old when Moore, then 32, initiated sexual contact with her. The Moore campaign attempted to cast doubt on her story last week by calling on her lawyer, Gloria Allred, to release a yearbook with an inscription Nelson said Moore wrote shortly before the assault.
