Trump told reporters he would announce next week whether he plans on going to Alabama to campaign for Moore. "I've looked at his record, it's bad on crime, it's awful on the border, it's awful on the military".

"That's why you saw Kellyanne come out yesterday and say we've got to have somebody like Judge Moore", Young said, adding: "You know, Kellyanne does talk for the White House".

The allegations against Mr Moore come amid a national reckoning over misdeeds by powerful men in media, business and politics. That's some law-and-order guy all right.

"We don't need a liberal person in there, a Democrat", Trump said as he departed for a five-day holiday in Florida. An appearance by the president did not work out too well for his original Alabama Senate candidate, Luther Strange.

The Washington Post, earlier this month, reported detailed accusations against Moore of sexual misconduct and assault against minors, one of whom alleges the conduct occurred when she was just 14. If there are any subjects on earth that Donald Trump should walk over hot coals to avoid, it is these. "And look, you have to look at him also".

He declined to answer questions about recent accusations lodged against Sen.

When asked about the allegations that Moore pursued multiple teenage girls while he was in his 30s and an assistant district attorney in Alabama, Trump responded that Moore "totally denies it" and pointed out that the allegations are from roughly 40 years ago.

A reporter asked Trump if an "accused child molester" was better than a Democrat.

Young appeared to be referring to statements Jones made last month, saying he would not support legislation that would ban abortion after the 20th week of a woman's pregnancy and criticizing the Trump administration for rescinding Obama-era guidance on transgender students' access to bathrooms and locker rooms in public schools. "The women are Trump voters".

Sessions said he had no reason to doubt Moore's accusers.
