White House's New Defense Of Trump's Moore Silence: He Supported Strange!

Share

Ted Cruz (R) spoke out against Democrats on Friday for the double standard they have employed for assessing sexual misconduct allegations waged against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore (R) and those charged against Sen.

"To the people of Alabama, thank you for being smarter than they think you are", Kayla Moore said.

Moore won the Republican Senate primary on September 26.

Her story, which is remarkably similar to the accounts shared by at least six other women who said the former president groped them during photo-ops between 2003 and 2016, is significant, because it is the first time a woman has come forward to accuse Mr Bush of unwanted touching while he was in office.

"I certainly have no reason to disbelieve any of them", Ivey said.

The president's relative silence on Moore and the national conversation on the pervasiveness of sexual harassment in America has drawn renewed attention to women who made their own allegations against Trump previous year during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The accusations sent a shockwave through the Senate race in Alabama, where Republicans typically have a lock on statewide election.

Mulvaley said he believes the accusations "are credible", but he still doesn't know "who to believe".

One woman after another trooped to the microphone on Friday to sing the praises of Roy Moore, including his wife Kayla.

"Is the President not being a hypocrite in tweeting about Al Franken and saying nothing about allegations about the Republican, Roy Moore?" she asked.

Moore has ignored mounting calls from Washington Republicans concerned that if he stays in the race against Democrat Doug Jones he may not only lose a seat they were sure to win but also may do significant damage to the party's brand among women nationwide as they prepare for a hard midterm election season.

Short continued: "The President, even when he was traveling overseas, put out a statement that says, 'If these allegations are true, he should step aside.' So the President's been very clear on this".

Moore has pledged to fight the accusations against him as the state GOP in Alabama reaffirmed its support for the embattled candidate. Her cousin was a Republican governor.

Trump has not addressed the allegations directed at Moore on Twitter.

"I do not recognize the man these ladies are describing", Ann Eubank, a fixture in Alabama Republican politics, said of the accusers. "At some point I think you ought to let the voters have a say here".
