Trump backs Roy Moore: 'He denies it'

"I'll be letting you know next week", he told reporters before jetting off to his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida where he and his family will spend Thanksgiving.

"I can tell you one thing for sure, we don't need a liberal person in there", Trump said. If you read the reporting done by newspapers in Alabama, it sounds like Moore's predilection for young girls was common knowledge when he was an assistant district attorney in Etowah County.

Donald Trump finally has some words about Roy Moore amid all the allegations coming out against him - but they're as disappointing as you might have thought.

Moore has denied it all and has vowed to carry on with his campaign.

White House panel discussion on Trump's endorsement of Moore, MSNBC analyst John Heilemann explained that there was no "moral consistency or ethic consistency" to Trump's decision to toss his support behind Moore because all Trump "cares about is himself". Of course not and let's not forget that Moore has denied the allegations even though many have claimed that Moore's pursuit of underaged women was widely known throughout the state. "Plus 53% of white women love me!" he denies it, he had a lot to say about his major Democratic opponent, Doug Jones.

Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner, who chairs the Senate Republican campaign arm, went so far as to suggest that if Moore managed to win the race, he would be expelled from the chamber soon after being seated.

Several allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced during the 2016 presidential campaign against Trump, who has denied them. "Forty years is a long time", Trump said, pointing to the amount of time that has passed since the alleged behavior.

Trump's Tuesday remarks put space between him and the Republican establishment, which has backed away from Moore.

Alone with Corfman, Moore chatted with her and asked for her phone number, she says. Ivanka Trump said there's a special place in hell for people who prey on children.

Stan Cooke, a spokesman for Moore, disputed the account of Beverly Young Nelson, who said Moore had sexually assaulted her when she was 16. The campaign says former restaurant employees and a former customer don't remember Nelson working there or Moore eating there.

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