Trump Formally Backs Roy Moore
”Go get ’em, Roy!” That’s what embattled Senate candidate Roy Moore claims President Trump told him during a call today offering his endorsement ahead of the Dec. 12 vote. Confirmed by the White House, it was joined by a morning tweet from Trump saying, “We need Republican Roy Moore to win in Alabama.” It’s his clearest show of support for the controversial Republican, who faces allegations that he sexually assaulted teenagers earlier in his career. Moore has denied the claims. The Republic National Committee, which initially halted their fundraising for Moore, has also resumed their support.
