Trump was questioned by the media today about GOP support for Roy Moore. The press probably didn’t like the answer but it was the blunt truth and straight to the point.
Mediaite has the details:
Trump Triples Down on Moore Support: We Don’t Want a Liberal Democrat in Alabama
President Trump reiterated his support for Roy Moore once again by attacking the beleaguered senate candidate’s opponent during a White House event today.
As Trump held a GOP luncheon to discuss the final steps for pushing tax reforms through Congress, he was asked whether he still supports Moore despite the lingering controversy of his alleged sexual misconduct towards minors. Trump said he expects Moore to do “very well” in next week’s senate race, and he proceeded to trash Doug Jones.
“We don’t want to have a Liberal Democrat in Alabama. Believe me,” Trump said. “We want strong borders and stopping crime. We want to have the things that we represent and we don’t want a Liberal Democrat that is controlled by Nancy Pelosi and controlled by Chuck Schumer. We don’t want to have that for Alabama.”
That’s the simple truth. With so much at stake, having a Democrat win this race would be awful.
