Trump discounts accusations against Senate candidate Moore

"I've looked at his record - it's bad on crime, it's awful on the border, it's awful on the military", Trump said of Moore's Democratic opponent, former U.S. Attorney Doug Jones.

The women who have accused Moore are "Trump voters", the president said, before again stating that Moore "totally denies it".

Trump also said he will announce next week whether he will campaign for Moore, who has been abandoned by the National Republican Senatorial Committee and the Republican National Committee in the wake of the accusations.

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.

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. That's some law-and-order guy all right.

"Women are very special", Trump responded. An appearance by the president did not work out too well for his original Alabama Senate candidate, Luther Strange.

Moore faces sexual misconduct allegations by a number of women who said Moore pursued them when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s. If there are any subjects on earth that Donald Trump should walk over hot coals to avoid, it is these. It's awful on crime. "Y'all can keep trotting them out if you want to, but we're not going to talk about that", Young said, referring to reporters' efforts to ask questions. "He denies it. And by the way, he totally denies it". Jeff Flake, who has been critical of Trump and is retiring in 2018, said Monday.

That's a horrifying excuse for throwing the weight of the US presidency behind a man like Roy Moore.

"By the way, he gives a total denial, and I do have to say 40 years is a long time. I'm very happy a lot of these things are coming out".

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

That's a huge break from where McConnell and the rest of the Republican establishment are on the Moore issue - and where they hoped Trump would be.

By saying he supports Moore's version of events, Trump is, de facto, saying that the women aren't telling the truth.
