Trump chooses legislative agenda over GOP repulsion of Moore

Brynn Anderson  AP

In a pre-dawn tweets Sunday, Trump repeated his argument implying Moore's election in Alabama's special election December 12 would be better than that of Democrat Doug Jones.

The comments were later included in an ad by Moore's Democratic opponent, Doug Jones. 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.

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.

A White House official clarified to The Times that Trump believes Moore should exit the race if the allegations are true. In the tweet, Trump criticized Jones as "WEAK" and "a disaster" and claimed Jones would raise taxes "TO THE SKY".

Meanwhile on NBC's Meet the Press, fellow Republican Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio), said that the best thing for the country would be if Moore dropped out. Tim Scott (R-SC) said on ABC.

He also pointed out that Moore "totally denies" the accusations against him and that the media "has to listen to him also".

Ahead of his arrival at the Trump International Golf Club in Florida, his 81st visit to a golf club and 103rd at a Trump property since assuming the presidency, Donald Trump doubled down on his advocacy for Roy Moore. Faye served as a Gadsen police officer for 37 years and says she worked as a juvenile detective, explaining that every day her department "waited for a complaint to come in" about Roy Moore.

Trump said he was "very happy" that women are speaking out about their experiences. Ivanka Trump said there's "a special place in hell" for people who prey on children. Moore, however, has insisted that he is innocent of the charges. His campaign held an afternoon news conference to vigorously question the account of Beverly Nelson, who said Moore assaulted her when she was a 16-year-old waitress.

Graham noted Republicans are in a lose-lose position when it comes to Moore. The seat opened up after Republican Jeff Sessions was tapped as US attorney general.

Moore wasn't the President's first choice for the nomination.

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