Roy Moore: Trump defends Alabama candidate in misconduct claims

President Trump on Tuesday said it was a good thing that so many women are coming forward to talk about the sexual harassment and assault they've suffered at the hands of powerful men.

Even if you don't think it's been proven that Moore is a "pedophile", the authorities in Gadsden, Alabama, clearly thought he was a threat to the safety of minors peacefully shopping at a local mall.

In the same appearance, Trump appeared to throw his support behind Moore, despite the allegations of sexual misconduct against the Alabama Senate candidate.

President Donald Trump speaks to reporters before leaving the White House, Tuesday, Nov. 21, 2017, in Washington for a Thanksgiving trip to Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Fla.

Several women have come forward and accused Moore of pursuing romantic relationships with them when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s, and several others also have accused him of assault.

"Doug Jones in Alabama, folks, don't be fooled", Conway said. We don't need a liberal person in there, a Democrat.

"Judge Moore will help President Trump get done what needs to be done", Young added.

A number of Senate Republicans, including majority leader Mitch McConnell, have called on Moore to quit the race, but he has adamantly refused to do so. "I can tell you one thing for sure". More women have since spoken out with allegations of their own. But he has waded into other sexual assault allegations that have come to light recently against Democratic politicians, tweeting criticism of Sen.

"He denies it", Trump told reporters at the White House.

"We believe Judge Moore", Moore campaign strategist Dean Young said. Ivanka Trump said there's a special place in hell for people who prey on children. While Speier did not say that he should have resigned, she did suggest that his accusers should have been treated differently. The Moore campaign attempted to cast doubt on her story last week by calling on her lawyer, Gloria Allred, to release a yearbook with an inscription Nelson said Moore wrote shortly before the assault.

One of them, Leigh Corfman, said she was 14 years old when Moore, then 32, initiated sexual contact with her.

The campaign quoted two former restaurant employees and a former customer who said they did not remember Nelson working there or Moore eating there.
