President Trump made his first public comments on Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore earlier today, telling reporters “We don’t need a liberal Democrat in that seat.”
Moore, who is running to fill the vacant seat left by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, is embroiled in multiple allegations of sexual misconduct lodged about a month before the December 12 election.
President Trump told reporters:
“Well he denies it, Roy Moore totally denies it. And by the way, he gives a total denial. And I have to say, 40 years is a long time. He’s run eight races and this has never come up. The women are Trump voters, most of them are Trump voters. So I guess you have to do what you have to do,” Trump said.
“I can tell you one thing for sure. We don’t need a liberal person in there, a Democrat. I looked at his record he’s terrible on crime terrible on borders,” Trump added. “We don’t need somebody who’s soft on crime like Jones.”
Deflecting questions about his own accusers, Trump said he believes the current national conversation about sexual harassment and assault in the workplace is “great for women,” and that he’s glad they’re speaking up.
“Women are very special. I think it’s a very special time because a lot of things are coming out,” said Trump.
