Trump Defends Roy Moore Amid Sexual Assault Allegations: 'He Totally Denies It'

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

President Donald Trump is not pulling his support from Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore.

Trump spoke to reporters Tuesday at the White House before leaving for a Thanksgiving break at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida.

On Thursday afternoon, November 9, The Washington Post had published a report detailing allegations that Moore, the Republican nominee, pursued sexual relationships with teenagers when he was in his early 30s.

Several allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced during the 2016 presidential campaign against Trump, who has denied them.

Trump, repeatedly pressed on the accusations against Moore, said he took the GOP candidate at his word, when it came to his denials of the accusations.

Moore, 70, has denied the accusations and has said he is the victim of a witch hunt.

Trump also hit at Moore's rival Doug Jones - a 63-year- old US Attorney who is now ahead 47 per cent to 42 per cent in the polls.

The White House previously said Mr Trump thought the Moore allegations were "extremely troubling".

Clooney to return to TV
Clooney will direct and star in the six-episode series, based on U.S. author Joseph Heller's darkly comedic 1961 novel "Catch-22". The Academy Award-winning actor is set to direct and star in a new limited series, his first since leaving ER in 2009.

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".

But Trump on Tuesday left the door open to campaigning with Moore.

Republican U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other prominent lawmakers have pressed Moore to quit the race. He's run eight races and this has never come up.

Alone with Corfman, Moore chatted with her and asked for her phone number, she says.

The other argument Trump made in his comments about Moore, essentially, is this: Moore is a Republican. "I can tell you for a fact we do not need somebody who's going to be bad on crime, bad on borders, bad for the military, bad for the Second Amendment".

Asked whether that meant Republicans should vote for Moore, Conway responded: "I'm telling you that we want the votes in the Senate to get this tax bill through". "Now he's looking at the situation and thinking there's a chance that Roy Moore can win, and if Roy Moore can win, that's ultimately in his interest because all he cares about is getting a big legislative win".

I mean, Roy Moore denies it.

A reporter shouted a follow-up in response: "Is an accused child molester better than a Democrat?" Jeff Flake, who has been critical of Trump and is retiring in 2018, said Monday.
