Alabamians attending the Friday night rally were united in support of Trump, but divided over who should be the state's next senator. Luther Strange, who was appointed in February to temporarily fill the seat that opened up when Jeff Sessions became attorney general. "I gotta get your vote on health care.' He said, 'You got it, '" Trump said, sounding as if he was still amazed at how easy it was to whip unusual.
Luther Strange, against a conservative firebrand in Roy Moore - whom Republican Party leaders have spent millions against in an effort to defeat him.
Carson doesn't expressly urge people to vote for Moore, but it's clear that he supports the former Judge. Luther Strange in Tuesday's primary runoff. He has received Trump's endorsement, and the president was persuaded to come to Alabama to hold a rally for him. The President later asserted that unusual "didn't know" the Senate majority leader.

While his campaign platform focuses on a variety of issues, such as the repeal of President Barack Obama's health care overhaul and increased military spending, his signature issue through the years has always been the "acknowledgement of God". Trump called that a "bum rap". He also chided the Arizona Republican for what he saw as hypocrisy.
As exciting as a presidential visit is for the residents of Northern Alabama, Trump's visit is expected to wreak havoc on local roadways.
Trump also returned to some of his favourite topics.
Trump noted that a wall extending across the entire border is not necessary. "We're going to do it eventually", he said.
"If Hillary had won", Trump said, "You'd be turning over your rifles", to which the crowd responded with chants of "lock her up, lock her up". Quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who started the trend previous year when he played for the San Francisco 49ers, hasn't been signed by an National Football League team for this season.
Moore has led odd in the polls, although the gap has closed.
Carson lauded what he called Moore's "Judeo-Christian values", and said "it is these values we must return to in order to make America great again", borrowing from Trump's own campaign slogan.
