The President said that Republicans need to win Moore’s election to the Senate in Alabama
The US President Donald trump on Monday endorsed Republican Roy Moore, who came under a barrage of criticism due to accusations of sexual harassment ahead of next week’s elections on a post of the Senator from Alabama.
As trump wrote on Twitter, Moore need the Republicans to provide a sufficient number of votes during the discussion of such key issues as immigration. “Because the Democrats give up at least one vote to support massive tax cuts, we need to get in Alabama defeated Republican Roy Moore,” said the President.
Tramp for the first time so strongly expressed support for Moore since last month there were accusations against the latter. Moore denies the allegations, thanked trump for his support.
The President has repeatedly acted with criticism of Moore’s opponent, Democrat Doug Jones, but in the Republican primaries he supported the opponent of Moore, Senator Luther, Strange.
Although the White house claim that trump will not agitate in support of Moore, on Friday, he will hold the event in Pensacola, near the Alabama.
On Monday, trump said that the victory of a Democrat in Alabama “will be detrimental to our great Republican agenda.” “We need his voice when discussing the fight against crime and illegal immigration, a wall on the border, the armed forces, abortion, second amendment and other issues. No Jones, a puppet of Pelosi and Schumer”, – he wrote.
Alabama Republicans also support Moore, although some members of the Republican party in Congress trying to distance themselves from him. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell last month said that he believes the accusations against Moore, and together with other senators urged him to drop out of the race. However, on Sunday, McConnell said that ultimately the issue should be resolved by voters in Alabama.
According to the results published in the Sunday poll by CBS News, Moore pariet Jones at six percent, and the majority of Alabama Republicans believe the allegations against him are fabricated.
We will remind, several women stated that they had experienced sexual harassment on the part of Moore, when they were teenagers. He at that time was 30 years.
