Donald Trump Endorses Roy Moore, Citing Dem. Obstruction on Tax Reform

Mitt Romney in 2016

Moore's campaign had $636,046 on hand.

Moore is running up against Democratic candidate Doug Jones, who Trump has attacked on social media in recent weeks instead of addressing Moore's situation.

"The President had a positive call with Judge Roy Moore during which they discussed the state of the Alabama Senate race and the President endorsed Judge Moore's campaign", White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah said in a statement.

In the initial aftermath of the report, Trump remained mum in public and his staff suggested the President did not support Moore because he was not campaigning in Alabama.

This comes as the Republican has been targeted by Democrats and the mainstream media for unverified allegations from almost 40 years ago, but Moore is fighting back. She made her decision after hearing Moore categorically deny knowing any of his accusers, including herself.

Mr Trump initially backed incumbent Luther Strange, 64, in the race but he lost the primary to Mr Moore, sending shockwaves through Washington. "Jones, I've looked at his record".

Romney tweeted, "Roy Moore in the US Senate would be a stain on the GOP and on the nation".

Is there anybody who is surprised that Trump, who has been accused by over a dozen women of sexual harassment, endorsed the degenerate judge? After the report, another woman came forward to accuse Moore of sexually assaulting her when she was 16. But last week, the White House announced that Trump will hold an event in Pensacola, Florida - just 25 miles from the Alabama border - later this week. He says it didn't happen.

"(Trump) is making the point that in one of our best opportunities for significant tax relief. we couldn't muster any support from Democrats", he said.

Jones had a lead of 3 percentage points over Moore among likely voters - within the margin of error - according a poll released December 2 by the Washington Post and the Schar School of Policy and Government at George Mason University.

Trump's move runs counter to many other Republican leaders who have repudiated Moore and called on him to exit the race.
