Cory Booker campaigns for Democrat in Alabama

       Time for a #TrumpToo movement liberals say

The president is still incredibly popular in Alabama, a state he won by almost 30 points in November.

Trump highlighted familiar themes from his political rallies: criticism of violence in Chicago, which he suggested was less safe than Afghanistan, as well as his commitment to improving United States border security and to crack down on immigration.

"If you look at the positions I've got on health care, if you look at the positions I got on jobs, you should look at the support I have from the business community, I think I'm pretty mainstream", Jones said in a recent interview with Fox News.

Several women have accused Moore of sexual misconduct, and pursuing them when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s.

"We can not afford, the future of this country can not afford to lose the seat", Trump said referring to his party's narrow 52-48 advantage in the Senate. The election could have major implications for the balance of power in the Senate, where Republicans have a slight edge. Alabama voters pick between Republican Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones on Tuesday. But she told Ellis that she plans to vote for Jones anyway.

"Roy Moore is the guy we need to pass our "Make America Great Again" agenda", Trump adds.

Shelby says he had to vote Republican as a party officeholder, but he was swayed by a woman's claims that Moore sexually assaulted her when she was 14.

US Senator Al Franken said on Thursday he would resign in the coming weeks after allegations of sexual misconduct.

He's also drawing headlines with the help of President Donald Trump, who came to the Florida Panhandle on Friday night and has lined up a recorded telephone call from the president that will start being delivered to Alabama voters on Monday.

Jones needs to energize the state's Democratic base, which consists primarily of black voters and white progressives in urban areas, and also peel away some votes that would typically go to a Republican. In addition to celebrating himself and how well his presidency is going, Trump predicted that he would be hard to defeat in the next election and ranted about the usual topics and suspects, from the Paris Accord and chain migration to people who won't say "merry Christmas" and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

"Did you see what happened today?" You know, the yearbook? Richard Shelby says he instead wrote in the name of another Republican when he voted by absentee ballot. "Frankly, I don't think the people of Alabama want me, any national politician, or the national news media telling them what to think or how to vote", Byrne said in the statement.

Nelson's attorney Gloria Allred said on Friday a handwriting analysis had concluded that Moore had signed the yearbook. Moore has denied all of the accusations, painting the women's stories as a liberal smear campaign. "We find these allegations to be troubling and concerning, and they should be taken seriously".

Trump concluded his riff by saying, "Get out and vote for Roy Moore..."
