Roy Moore thanks Trump in new fundraising appeal

Roy Moore’s Communications Director Resigns

President Donald Trump is again coming to the side of embattled Republican Roy Moore by bashing the Democratic nominee in the hotly contested Alabama Senate race. Beverly Young Nelson alleged in a press conference days later that Moore attempted to rape her when she was 16.

"In my opinion, and in the opinion of many Republicans and conservatives in the Senate, it is time for us to turn the page because it is not about partisan politics". Across the networks Sunday morning, Republicans echoed that call. This is about the character of our country.

"We don't need a liberal person ... a Democrat" in that seat, Trump told reporters as he left the White House for a Thanksgiving trip to Palm Beach, Florida, adding that Moore "totally denies" the allegations against him.

"Doug Jones is continuing to focus on finding common ground and getting things done for real Alabamians", the statement said.

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

Nine women have accused Moore of sexual misconduct, including one who was just 14 when Moore, then in his 30s, approached her. At least five others have said he pursued romantic relationships when they were teenagers and he was a prosecutor.




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.

On CNN, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was asked about Trump's support for Moore, saying, "That's a political decision by the president".

Even as GOP leaders and Congress members have fled from Moore and called for his defeat in the Alabama race, Trump has seemed to stand by the candidate while arguing that anything would be better than seeing a Democrat win.

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC, who has also called for Moore to step down, said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" that Trump is "definitely trying to throw a lifeline to Roy Moore".

Mr Moore has said he has "not been guilty of sexual misconduct with anyone". "If you lose, you give the senate seat to a Democrat". (R-Colo.), who serves as the chairman of the Senate GOP's campaign arm, said the Senate should expel Moore if he wins the election. But other party leaders have made a different choice. Long before he defeated incumbent Sen.
