  • Trump attacks opponent of controversial Senate candidate Roy Moore

"So, you know, ultimately the decision is up to the people of Alabama, but it strikes me at least that it would be in their best interest and in the country's best interest and certainly the best interest of our agenda if the President would use his influence to try to get Roy Moore to step aside".

During the Alabama Republican primary, Trump endorsed Sen.

On Sunday, the president claimed that after he had supported odd, the candidate "shot way up in the polls" - a claim he also made in September - but "it wasn't enough". Can't let Schumer/Pelosi win this race. "Liberal Jones would be BAD!" he wrote.

He was referring to Democrat Doug Jones, who is running against Moore to fill the Senate seat left open when Trump named Jeff Sessions attorney general.

Trump wishes the media a happy Thanksgiving, tells them: 'You're fired'
Trump is telling followers in an early-morning holiday tweet that, "your Country is starting to do really well". Trump tells members of a Coast Guard station in Florida, "I always say, make ours a little bit better".

On Sunday, Trump redoubled his support for Moore, ignoring the allegations of sexual harassment plaguing the politician's Alabama campaign and branding his opponent as weak on crime, the military and immigration. One woman, Leigh Corfman, told the Washington Post in a November 9 article that Moore attempted to initiate sexual contact with her when she was 14. One accuser, Leigh Corfman, alleged that Moore molested her when she was 14 years old.

Senator John Thune, the No 3 Republican in the Senate, has said he would like to see Mr Trump reverse his backing of Mr Moore.

On Sunday, Sen. Lindsay Graham acknowledged Trump's tacit endorsement of Moore.

In a pair of tweets Sunday morning, Trump said "the last thing we need" in Alabama and the Senate is a "puppet" of the Democratic congressional leadership.

A source close to the deal told NFL Insider Ian Rapport that Revis agreed to a two-year deal that will pay him the league minimum. The Chiefs can surely use held in the secondary, which hasn't performed at a high clip in the absence of safety Eric Berry .

The doubling down on Moore comes a day after a report in the New York Times said the president is annoyed with his daughter Ivanka after she called out the Alabama Republican over the sexual accusations.

The Times cites three staff members confirmed hearing the comments, with Trump asking "Do you believe this?" to several aides in the Oval Office. Trump also apparently "vented" his annoyance at Ivanka to several advisers.

"The list is growing", the narrator in the ad said.

A retired Gasdsen, Ala. law enforcement officer says she and her fellow officers were told to keep Republican Senate Candidate Roy Moore away from the high school cheerleading team because it was known that Moore preferred young girls. "Now, they are women, witnesses to us all of his disturbing conduct".
