President Trump offers full support for embattled Republican Roy Moore

President Donald Trump restated his support for Roy Moore the besieged Republican Senate candidate for the senate seat in Alabama

"Democrats refusal to give even one vote for massive Tax Cuts is why we need Republican Roy Moore to win in Alabama", he tweeted. "Jobs are roaring back!" Jones and Moore are competing in the December 12 special election to fill Attorney General Jeff Sessions' former Senate seat.

Trump, who for weeks has expressed a preference for Moore, did not mention the allegations that Moore sexually assaulted and harassed girls as young as 14 years old when he was in his 30s and an assistant district attorney.

The president has repeatedly slammed Moore's Democratic opponent, former US attorney Doug Jones, but had previously backed Moore's former Republican rival Luther Strange in line with Senate Republicans.

Trump has taken another path, all but endorsing Moore last month when he told reporters that Moore "totally denies it". "Jones would be a disaster!" Luther Strange, whom the president campaigned for. "He shot way up in the polls but it wasn't enough". We don't need a liberal person in there, a Democrat, Jones.

"We need Republican Roy Moore to win in Alabama", Trump declared in an early morning tweet, leaving no question that he was supporting a Senate nominee that many other Republican leaders have repudiated and called upon to quit the race.

Flight crew witnessed North Korean nuclear missile test, airline says
Korean Air pilots on two different planes also reported seeing flashes of light believed to have been the North Korean missile. The operators insist the missile flew far from the flight's path and at no point posed a threat to the aircraft.

Electing Jones, Trump said, "would hurt our great Republican Agenda of low on taxes, tough on crime, strong on military and borders.& so much more". "Look, he denies it". He says it didn't happen.

Trump himself has been accused of misconduct by several women, ranging from groping to unwanted advances and kissing, though these did not prevent his election previous year. White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders has said the administration's position is that all of Trump's accusers are lying.

Short said Trump's point is that "when allegations arise 38 years later, when Roy Moore has been a very public figure for those 38 years, he's run multiple times statewide in Alabama, the people in Alabama have an opportunity to choose and make some decisions about Roy Moore's character".

The accusations against Moore - and national Republicans' near total-desertion of his campaign, apart from Trump - has made the Alabama Senate race unusually competitive.
