Trump backs Roy Moore: 'He denies it'

Two have accused him of assault or molestation; he vehemently denies it. Majority are Trump voters. The president added that "we don't need a liberal person in there, a Democrat".

He pointed to Mr Moore's assertions that he did nothing wrong.

Trump also criticized Moore's Democratic rival, Doug Jones, in the special election December 12 to fill the seat held by Jeff Sessions before he became Trump's attorney general. "Look, he denies it". "He says it didn't happen".

Trump, McConnell and the NRSC backed Moore's primary opponent, appointed Sen. "Because the people of Alabama don't go for what you're trying to sell", Young said. "He's bad for property owners".

"If you look at what is really going on, and you look at all the things that have happened over the last 48 hours, he totally denies it", said the president.

Republican Roy Moore's campaign is lashing out again at the news media and accusations of sexual misconduct, but refusing to answer reporters' questions. The campaign says former restaurant employees and a former customer don't remember Nelson working there or Moore eating there.

"Women are very special..." "I think it's a very special time because a lot of things are coming out and I think that's good for our society".

"I want y'all to talk about it Sunday night after church, and I want y'all to think in your brain - Judge Moore that we've known for 25 years".

But the White House signaled on Monday that its position was shifting away from the mainstream of Republican leaders, as White House counselor Kellyanne Conway signaled the need for Moore's vote on tax reform was more important in the administration's calculation than the sexual misconduct allegations leveled against him. The October 2016 release of the "Access Hollywood" tape revealed that Trump bragged in in 2005 that he could grope and forcibly kiss women without their consent.

Alone with Corfman, Moore chatted with her and asked for her phone number, she says.
