Trump endorses Roy Moore: We don't want a liberal Democrat

President Donald Trump formally endorsed Alabama's Roy Moore for Senate, saying "I think he's going to do very well. We don't want to have a liberal Democrat in Alabama." He made the comments during a lunch with Republican senators.

“We don’t want to have a Liberal Democrat in Alabama. Believe me,” Trump said. “We want strong borders and stopping crime. We want to have the things that we represent and we don’t want a Liberal Democrat that is controlled by Nancy Pelosi and controlled by Chuck Schumer. We don’t want to have that for Alabama.”

Moore has a solid chance of winning the election since most polled Republican state voters don’t believe the claims against him, and also because the RNC is once again providing support for his campaign.

Early Monday morning, Trump tweeted that "we need Republican Roy Moore to win" in order to push through the president's agenda. Later, Trump called the Senate candidate directly to endorse his campaign, principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah said, and he has a rally planned later this week just over the state line in Pensacola, Florida. Some Alabamians have been receiving robocalls urging them to travel to the neighboring state for the rally.
