President Donald Trump all but endorsed Ten Commandments Judge Roy Moore on Tuesday in an exchange with reporters, casting doubt on the allegations against the legendary former Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, a Christian conservative constitutionalist.
The President blasted Judge Moore’s liberal Democrat opponent, Doug Jones:
“I can tell you one thing for sure, we don’t need a liberal person in there, a Democrat — Jones — I’ve looked at his record. It’s terrible on crime, it’s terrible on the border, it’s terrible on the military…bad for the Second Amendment.”
Reporters pressed Trump on whether he believed the various allegations against Moore that have been orchestrated less than a month away from the December 12, Alabama U.S. Senate election.
The President repeated that Judge Moore “totally denies” the claims, revealing that Moore told him that himself and that he’s a “very special guy.”
Trump would not say whether he planned on campaigning for Moore and declined to weigh in on the whether Democrats John Conyers and Al Franken should resign.
