Trump Urges Vote for Roy Moore, Cites Candidate's Denial of Allegations

Melania Trump Donald Trump Georgina Chapman and Harvey Weinstein

US President Donald Trump on Tuesday offered a political lifeline to an embattled Alabama Republican accused of preying on teenagers, echoing the would-be senator's denials and attacking his Democratic rival.

President Trump speaks before pardoning the National Thanksgiving Turkey, Drumstick, during a ceremony in the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington on November 21.

When asked about the allegations that Moore pursued multiple teenage girls while he was in his 30s and an assistant district attorney in Alabama, Trump responded that Moore "totally denies it" and pointed out that the allegations are from roughly 40 years ago.

The issue puts the president in a potentially awkward position, given that the "Access Hollywood" recording almost derailed his campaign and that more than a dozen women have accused him of sexually inappropriate behavior.

"There are so many shows centered around this very true fact that people reproduce", she said. I fucking love that show, and I cried when it ended because I couldn't handle not seeing it.

Yesterday, Benham was interviewed by Alabama radio hosts Matt Murphy and Andrea Lindenberg on their "Matt & Aunie" show about the press conference and the allegations against Moore, and to say that the interview was a debacle would be an understatement.

Trump also said he will announce next week whether he will campaign for Moore, who has been abandoned by the National Republican Senatorial Committee and the Republican National Committee in the wake of the accusations. Moore, who initially appeared to be headed for an easy victory in a reliably Republican state, has trailed Jones in recent polls ahead of the December 12 election. I think it's a very special time because a lot of things are coming out, and I think that's good for our society. I've looked at his record.

"I've looked at his record - he's bad on the border", Trump claimed. It's awful on the border. "You have to listen to him also". "I can tell you for a fact we do not need somebody that's going to be bad on crime, bad on borders, bad with the military, bad for the Second Amendment". Asked whether he would actively campaign for Moore, Trump said he would let reporters know next week. I mean, Roy Moore denies it.

Before the allegations came to light, Moore was heavily favored to defeat Democrat Doug Jones, a former federal prosecutor, in the special election on December 12.
