Trump leaves NJ (briefly) for Alabama

Anti-gay Senate candidate gets trolled over hilarious typo

He lashed out at North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, calling him a "madman". By the way, rocket man should've been handled a long time ago...but I'm going to handle it now because it needs to be handled. Trump also told the United Nations that if "forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea".

President Donald Trump explained and reaffirmed his support for Sen.

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson issued a statement Friday supporting Roy Moore's candidacy for the Republican Senate nomination in Alabama, breaking with President Trump's endorsement of the establishment-backed incumbent Sen. Said Trump, "We have to be loyal in life".

Trump said it might be better to build a "see-through" wall on the Southern border with Mexico to better monitor drug traffickers coming from Mexico.

"If Hillary had won", Trump said, "You'd be turning over your rifles", to which the crowd responded with chants of "lock her up, lock her up".

And in a week when a former National Football League player who had been convicted of murder and committed suicide was found to have brain damage, adding to the evidence that concussions are severely affecting players' brains, Trump argued that focusing on athletes' brain injuries is also "ruining the game".

As the speech went on, Trump went to great lengths to stress that Luther Strange is not part of the establishment, that he's beholden to no one, and that he "doesn't do quid pro quo". Time spent by Trump being Trump was time optimally spent from Strange's perspective.

Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin headlined a Thursday night rally for Moore.

Republican leaders fear that candidates who are too far to the right could lose to Democrats, who are seeking to wrest control of the House and the Senate in the 2018 midterm elections. "They are terrified of Roy Moore", Flynt said.

While Strange is now supporting the President's agenda, his true allegiance is with McConnell and the Republican Party establishment. Moore has attacked the Senate majority leader as a creature of the "swamp" that Trump wishes to drain while unusual has tried to distance himself from the Kentucky Republican.

While Trump emphasized his support for odd, his speech also delved into his White House agenda, as well as many of his campaign themes.

Trump went after the NFL for not taking a stronger stance against players kneeling during the National Anthem.

"No, Russia did not help me", Trump said.

Carson lauded what he called Moore's "Judeo-Christian values", and said "it is these values we must return to in order to make America great again", borrowing from Trump's own campaign slogan. The president insisted he was taking a political risk and said that if odd were to lose, the media are "going to go after me".

The network said that Matthew Boyle, Breitbart's Washington editor, told staff: "The only story that matters until next week is Alabama".

But if Moore ultimately wins, it could deliver an embarrassing blow to Trump - who often forces congressional Republicans into submission by reminding them of his ability to sic his base against those who defy his wishes.
