The Republican, who has been accused of child sex abuse, is running against Democrat Doug Jones to fill Alabama's Senate seat.

Trump has faced criticism from others within his party for his tepid response to the allegations against Moore, with the President telling reporters "he denies it," and "you have to listen to him also".

The president later suggested that Republicans "can't let Schumer/Pelosi win this race", not mentioning Moore by name in either tweet but each time criticizing Jones in a way that made clear that Trump supported the controversial Republican nominee. "I can tell you for a fact we do not need somebody who's going to be bad on crime, bad on borders, bad with the military, bad for the Second Amendment".

"He's definitely trying to throw a lifeline to Roy Moore", Sen.

Mitch McConnell, the Senate Republican leader, has called for Moore to drop out, saying: "I believe the women". Trump wrote in one tweet. The Republican National Committee and the National Republican Senatorial Committee have pulled their support for his campaign. Long before he defeated incumbent Sen.

In another tweet, he lamented the defeat of Senator Luther Strange, who Trump endorsed in the September primary vote against Moore.

"Doug Jones is continuing to focus on finding common ground and getting things done for real Alabamians", the statement said. Sessions has resisted pleas to mount a last-minute campaign for his old seat. Moore has denied all wrongdoing.

"From the beginning", explained Republican state Rep. Jack Williams, "there was talk that if Moore fell short maybe he'd run for governor".

It has been widely reported that unusual did not advance in the polls after Trump's endorsement.

"A lot of things are coming out, and I think that's good for our society and I think it's very very good for women, ' he said".

More than a dozen women came forward in the waning days of the 2016 presidential election to say that Trump had sexually assaulted or harassed them over the years. "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". "A lot of them are Trump voters", Trump said.

Trump, who has said all of his accusers lied, declined to answer Tuesday when asked why he does not believe Moore's accusers. Moore, however, has insisted that he is innocent of the charges.
