“We will need his vote”: Trump tweets that Republicans can’t afford another Democrat in the Senate.
After weeks of tacit support, President Donald Trump has explicitly called for Alabamans to elect Republican senate candidate Roy Moore, who has eight allegations of child molestation and assault and inappropriate sexual behavior against him.
“Democrats refusal to give even one vote for massive Tax Cuts is why we need Republican Roy Moore to win in Alabama,” Trump tweeted Monday morning.
Democrats refusal to give even one vote for massive Tax Cuts is why we need Republican Roy Moore to win in Alabama. We need his vote on stopping crime, illegal immigration, Border Wall, Military, Pro Life, V.A., Judges 2nd Amendment and more. No to Jones, a Pelosi/Schumer Puppet!

Moore is facing one of the toughest races for Republicans in recent years — polls have him with an edge, but he is running neck and neck with Democrat Doug Jones.
Perhaps worried about losing a seat with a bare two-vote majority in the Senate, Trump has hinted support of Moore in past weeks. He previously told reporters that Republicans “don’t need a liberal person in there,” referring to the Senate, and pressing that Moore denies all allegations.
Moore has been accused of pursuing and assaulting 14- to 18-year-old women while he was in his 30s, in addition to sexually assaulting a 28-year-old woman. The former Alabama judge has aggressively denied that accusation, and tried to discount the stories.
In addition to being accused of child molestation, Moore has questioned Rep. Keith Ellison’s (D-MN) standing in government for being a Muslim, said he believes homosexuality should be illegal, and has twice been removed from his seat on Alabama’s top court.
