Trump defends Moore against charges

Huh? Trump Reportedly Suggested Access Hollywood Tape 'Was Not Authentic'

Republicans hold a slim 52-48 majority in the Senate. On Tuesday, the president indicated that he did not accept the accusations against Moore.

"Forty years is a long time. And we were also told to watch him at the ball games and make sure he didn't hang around the cheerleaders. where the cheerleaders would be". Just 9 percent of GOP respondents said Moore "definitely did it" regarding the reported inappropriate sexual conduct with high school students when Moore was a prosecutor in his thirties. A lot of them are Trump voters.

Meanwhile, the Democrat in the Senate race is spotlighting Moore's accusers in a new ad.

She said she had no reason to doubt the women's accounts. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who has established a rapport with Trump.

The comments represented a shift in strategy for the White House, which previously tried to keep its distance from the controversy sparked by a Washington Post report detailing accusations by four women that Mr Moore pursued them when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s. Trump has repeatedly told his aides he does not believe Moore would ever quit. 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".

Moore will face Democrat Doug Jones in a special election for Alabama's U.S. Senate seat on December 12.

But something deeper has been consuming Trump.

Mr Moore, 70, has denied any wrongdoing.

President Trump reportedly told a senator earlier this year that the infamous recording in which he can be heard boasting about groping and kissing women without their consent may not be authentic, and repeated that claim recently to an adviser. In the hours after it was revealed in October 2016, Trump acknowledged that the voice was his, and he apologized.

Some 26 percent of the Republicans said Moore is "probably" responsible for the alleged acts, while the remaining population either thinks he did not do it or is unsure about what happened. They considered recruiting another Republican to run a write-in campaign against Moore and Jones, but two private polls showed such a candidacy would have no chance of success.
