Trump backs Roy Moore despite allegations Andy Puzder, America First Policies policy advisor and former CKE Restaurants CEO, on the NFL national anthem protests and the allegations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore.

President Trump gave his full backing Monday to Alabama Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore, telling voters “we need” him to tackle illegal immigration, tax reform and more — in his strongest statement yet in support of the embattled candidate.

With just one week left before voters head to the polls next Tuesday, the president tweeted that “we need” Moore, slamming his Democratic counterpart Doug Jones as a “puppet” for congressional Democratic leaders.

“Democrats refusal to give even one vote for massive Tax Cuts is why we need Republican Roy Moore to win in Alabama,” Trump tweeted. “We need his vote on stopping crime, illegal immigration, Border Wall, Military, Pro Life, V.A., Judges, 2nd Amendment and more. No to Jones, a Pelosi/ Schumer Puppet!”

Until now, Trump has kept a certain distance from Moore while making clear he opposes Jones — and refraining from condemning Moore in the same way some Senate Republicans have. Those GOP lawmakers have sought to ostracize Moore over explosive allegations he initiated sexual contact with teenage women decades ago, when he was an assistant district attorney in his early 30s. One of the women, Leigh Corfman, alleged Moore had sexual contact with her when she was just 14. The age of consent in Alabama is 16.

Moore has repeatedly denied the allegations.
