'We don't need a liberal:' Trump discounts Moore accusations

'We don't need a liberal:' Trump discounts Moore accusations

With votes for the GOP tax bill getting harder to whip, Donald Trump has voiced support for Roy Moore in the race for Alabama's Senate seat, defending the Republican candidate against charges of sexual misconduct.

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", President Trump said of Mr Moore's rival, Democrat Doug Jones.

In the same appearance, Trump appeared to throw his support behind Moore, despite the allegations of sexual misconduct against the Alabama Senate candidate.

Trump additionally failed to rule out the possibility that he might campaign for Moore.

Trump has been mum on Moore because he's been busy handling issues of interest; like arguing with a college basketball player's father, and major defense issues like whether everyone in the NFL stood for the national anthem. It's the first direct assault by the Jones camp against Moore on the allegations. No matter what the women - none of whom know each other and virtually every one of whom has put their names to the accusations they made against Moore - say.

Trump trades grade school insults with Kim Jong
Shortly after that speech, North Korean officials told CNN, "We don't care about what that mad dog may utter", referring to Trump. Also on the trip, Mr Trump met with Russian President Vladimir Putin several times on the margins of a summit in Vietnam.

But given the evidence we've seen - much of it coming from Trump supporters in Alabama - shouldn't it disqualify Moore from serving in the U.S. Senate? "A lot of things are coming out and I think that's good for our society and I think it's very, very good for women".

He was also caught on tape in 2005 boasting that he could grab women's private parts. "Forty years is a long time", Trump said, pointing to the amount of time that has passed since the alleged behavior.

In the Alabama GOP Senate runoff, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and his anti-Trump establishment allies somehow convinced Trump to back D.C. establishment Sen.

"We believe Judge Moore", Moore campaign strategist Dean Young said. Ivanka Trump said there's a special place in hell for people who prey on children.

The campaign says two former restaurant employees and a former customer don't remember Nelson working there or Moore eating there and disputed other details of her account such as the placement of the restaurant's dumpsters.

Moore's camp on Tuesday continued an offensive against the media and two of the female accusers.
