Trump backs Roy Moore: 'He denies it'

'Then he moves his hand to my butt': Second Al Franken accuser speaks out as HALF of Americans say he should resign

He was leaving the White House for a Thanksgiving vacation and was asked about Roy Moore, the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Alabama, a man who has now been repeatedly accused of hitting on, flirting with, attempting to date and sexually assaulting teenage girls when he was in his 30s.

"We don't need a liberal person in there", said Trump, adding, "Jones: I've looked at his record, it's awful on crime".

"I've looked at his record, it's bad on crime, it's awful on the border, it's awful on the military", Trump said of Jones, ahead of the December 12 election.

Trump himself has faced more than a dozen allegations of various forms of misconduct, with most of the women coming forward during last year's campaign. If you look at what is really going on and you look at all the things that have happened over the past 48 hours, he totally denies it.

The Washington Post, earlier this month, reported detailed accusations against Moore of sexual misconduct and assault against minors, one of whom alleges the conduct occurred when she was just 14.

"He denies it. He totally denies it", Trump said of the accusations, noting the alleged incidents took place about 40 years ago. "He's run eight races, and this has never come up", he said. And you know you have to look at him also. Luther Strange (R-AL). Bannon endorsed and campaigned for Moore, who ended up thumping Strange.

Matt Moore nearly led Miami to another comeback win after entering the game at halftime with the Dolphins trailing 20-7. NOTES: Among Tampa Bay's seven inactives were QB Jameis Winston , CB Vernon Hargreaves III and DE William Gholston.

It's not surprising to see Trump join Republicans in Moore's state.

"Women are very special", Trump said.

Democratic candidate Doug Jones began airing a new ad that features statements made by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, U.S. Sen. That's all I can say. "Nobody ever says his name, and they pretend that he's some kind of conservative Democrat in Alabama, and he's not".

By saying he supports Moore's version of events, Trump is, de facto, saying that the women aren't telling the truth. He is weak on crime. White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders has said the administration's position is that all of Trump's accusers are lying. He's strong on raising your taxes. The special election is slated for December 12. And I think it's very, very good for women.

"When you're a star, they let you do it", Mr Trump said on the Access Hollywood tape.
