Credit The Hill Only in America Trump backs Republican candidate accused of sexual assault 0

It also contrasted with comments from his daughter, Ms Ivanka Trump, who said there was a "special place in hell for people who prey on children".

The 30-second spot, titled 'Immoral, ' names seven women who have accused Moore, a Republican former judge, of a range of sexual misconduct offenses when they were in their teens.

Stopping short of a full-throated endorsement of Moore-Trump did endorse Moore's opponent Luther Strange in the Republican primaries-the president said he'd reveal more information about campaigning with the candidate next week.

Moore's campaign, meanwhile, wasted little time yesterday promoting Donald Trump's apparent support for the GOP candidate, voiced from the White House's South Lawn yesterday. When the allegations against Moore first surfaced, the president was preoccupied with a 12-day tour of Asia, leaving staffers to offer minimal but firm statements that Moore should withdraw-if the charges prove true.

'You have to listen to him also.

"I am on record saying I rather vote for a right end Republican, I rather keep that seat Republican", Flake added, "but if the choice was between Roy Moore and a Democrat, I would vote for the Democrat if I lived in Alabama". "We don't need a liberal person in there, a Democrat, Jones", said the president.


The candidate who spends the most doesn't always win the race, but I was amazed to see Politico report yesterday that Jones' campaign has "outspent Moore on television advertising by a 14-to-1 margin".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan, both Republicans, have both called on Moore to leave the race in light of the accusations.

Other Republican senators have also disavowed Moore, who was also reportedly banned from his local mall because of the behavior.

Sen. Orrin Hatch's (R-Utah) on-again, off-again re-election plans are apparently back on again.

The allegations against Moore come amid a national reckoning over misdeeds by powerful men in media, business and politics. More women have since spoken out with allegations of their own. His remarks to the press followed days of conversations in which he vented about Moore's accusers, questioned the veracity of their accounts, and used the obtuse, repeated refrain of sexual assault skeptics: why did these women only speak up now? He told reporters: "I'll be letting you know next week".
