Graham rues Trump's support for Roy Moore

27 November 2017

With a little more than two weeks until a special election for the Senate in Alabama, President Donald Trump on Sunday doubled down on his criticism of the Democratic nominee, Doug Jones, and reiterated his support for Roy Moore, the Republican candidate, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by a number of women.

If Moore wins the December 12 special election, for the old seat of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has said that the Ethics Committee will investigate the allegations and the Alabamian could face an expulsion vote. Trump was annoyed by his daughter's comments and said to Oval Office aides, "Can you believe this?" according to The New York Times. "The moral of the story is don't nominate somebody like Roy Moore who could actually lose a seat that any other Republican could win". Trump writes in one tweet, adding in another that "Liberal Jones would be BAD!"

Trump has repeatedly refused to use Moore's name in a series of effective endorsements of the candidate.

"We were advised that he was being suspended from the mall because he would hang around the young girls that worked in the stores and, you know, really got into a place of where they say he was harassing". Trump claims Jones is itching to raise taxes "TO THE SKY" and would be "a disaster". "And we were also told to watch him at the ball games and make sure he didn't hang around the cheerleaders. where the cheerleaders would be". "And by the way, he totally denies it". But last week, as he left the White House for Thanksgiving weekend, Trump told reporters that Moore "denies" the allegations and defended his campaign.

Jones is a former U.S. attorney and is known for prosecuting two KKK members behind the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church. The seat opened up after Republican Jeff Sessions was tapped as USA attorney general.

In the wake of the allegations, Republican leaders scrambled to find a way to block Mr Moore as a candidate.
