President Donald Trump has shifted positions toward Roy Moore. He endorsed Sen. Luther Strange in the GOP primary, and after the allegations came out, the White House said Trump felt Moore should quit the race if the accusations were true.
But later, he seemed to change his mind, criticizing Moore’s Democratic opponent, former U.S. attorney Doug Jones. He also told reporters in late November that Moore “says it didn’t happen” and “you have to listen to him also,” in reference to allegations that Moore molested a 14-year-old girl when he was in his 30s.
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.
