Trump backs Roy Moore: 'He denies it'

The Washington sex-scandal that’s being overlooked

U.S. President Donald Trump defended embattled U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore on Tuesday, saying the Alabama Republican had denied allegations of sexual misconduct and emphasizing that he did not want Moore's Democratic opponent to win.

He spoke to reporters at the White House before leaving for a Thanksgiving break at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida.

Asked if he would speak about Moore, President Trump said, "I can tell you one thing for sure, we don't need a liberal person in there, a Democrat, [Doug] Jones". Moore has denied the allegations against him and blamed the media and his enemies in the Republican establishment for the backlash against his campaign.

Trump, repeatedly pressed on the accusations against Moore, said he took the GOP candidate at his word, when it came to his denials of the accusations.

The sheriff later backed down after District Attorney John Healey said he didn't think it would have been a prosecutable case. He asked for tips on the identity of the truck's owner and said he would "like to discuss it" with the owner.

Trump additionally failed to rule out the possibility that he might campaign for Moore.

Asked if voters should back Moore instead in the December 12 special election, Conway said, "We want the votes in the Senate to get this tax bill".

"He says it didn't happen, and you know, you have to listen to him also", he added. The campaign arm for Senate Republicans and the Republican National Committee have also severed ties with Moore.

"If you look at what is really going on, and you look at all the things that have happened over the last 48 hours, he totally denies it", said the president.

Drew Brees and the ascendent New Orleans Saints were having a decidedly "meh" game for most of the day against Washington. Klein and safety Keny Vaccaro - and then lost top cornerback Marshon Lattimore after the opening drive to an ankle injury.

In a Tuesday news conference, campaign strategist Dean Young and two other longtime associates of the Alabama GOP Senate nominee insisted allegations against Moore are false.

"When you're a star, they let you do it", Mr Trump said on the Access Hollywood tape. I mean, Roy Moore denies it. He's run eight races and this has never come up.

Young said he advised Moore not to lend credence to the questions either and dismissed the allegations - which range from inappropriate behavior to pursuing teenage girls while he was past the age of 30 to sexual assault - as "Jerry Springer stuff".

Funding for sports programs at question in new tax bill
The elimination of some deductions is needed, while curtailing or ending many others can be argued convincingly. The statement from Rogers added that the bill is expected to create almost 13,000 new jobs for Kentuckians.
