Trump offers support for Moore in Alabama Senate race despite misconduct allegations

But he was unusually quiet when it came to the scandal enveloping Alabama Republican Roy Moore's Senate campaign, only addressing it directly a week after returning to the USA - on Tuesday afternoon - when he told reporters outside the White House he was standing by the GOP nominee.

In her first televised interview since the Post detailed her allegations, Leigh Corfman told NBC's "Today" show on Monday that Moore "basically laid out some blankets on the floor of his living room and proceeded to seduce me, I guess you would say" on her second visit to his home when she was 14 and he was 32.

"We don't need a liberal person in there, a Democrat, Jones".

Trump criticized Moore's opponent, Democrat Doug Jones, as being "terrible on crime, bad on borders".

Moore is facing several allegations of gross sexual misconduct involving minors, from incidents that allegedly happened almost 40 years ago. "I mean, if you look at what is really going on and you look at all the things that have happened over the last 48 hours, he totally denies it". While Trump did not go as far as to say he didn't believe the women accusing Moore of misconduct, his emphasis on Moore's denials amount to the same thing.

The brand pulled in $112.5 million in revenue over the past year and UL believes that there is room for more growth. Starbucks said that, by selling Tazo, it would "sharpen its focus on its up-level tea strategy with Teavana".

Asked whether he might campaign for Moore in advance of the December 12 special election, Trump left the door open to the possibility. He's run eight races and this has never come up. "And you know, we were advised that, you know, he was being suspended from the mall because he would hang around the young girls that worked in the stores", the retired cop said.

Asked whether he would actively campaign for Moore, Trump said he would let reporters know next week.

When asked if he thought Trump was thinking about tax reform with this move, Heilemann explained that Trump was likely very anxious about it because he wants a victory because he's staring down a year in office without any major legislative wins. "We don't need somebody who's soft on crime like Jones". "Nobody ever says his name, and they pretend that he's some kind of conservative Democrat in Alabama, and he's not". "He will be a vote against tax cuts". The October 2016 release of the "Access Hollywood" tape revealed that Trump bragged in in 2005 that he could grope and forcibly kiss women without their consent.

Sessions said he had no reason to doubt Moore's accusers. "He's awful for property owners".

"'We are in trouble as a party if we continue to follow both Roy Moore and Donald Trump", Arizona Sen.
