Trump doubles down on support for alleged child sex predator Roy Moore

He tweeted that "the last thing" Republicans need in the closely divided Senate is a Democratic "puppet who is WEAK on Crime, WEAK on the Border".

"From a Republican point of view, I don't know what winning looks like with Roy Moore", he added. Initially following the Post's reporting, the White House said in a statement that Moore should step aside from the race if Corfman's allegations were true.

Trump said, "Roy Moore denies it, that's all I can say".

Moore's Senate campaign has been mired in recent weeks with allegations of sexual harassment involving young girls.

The allegations, including claims that the 70-year-old Moore sexually assaulted or molested two teenage girls while he was in his 30s, have made the December 12 election a referendum on "the character of the country" that transcends partisan politics, said GOP Sen.

The president later suggested that Republicans "can't let Schumer/Pelosi win this race", not mentioning Moore by name in either tweet but each time criticizing Jones in a way that made clear that Trump supported the controversial Republican nominee.

At least nine women have accused Moore of making sexual or romantic advances toward them as teenagers.

This ultra-pragmatic view contradicted her own words from last week, when she said "there is no Senate seat worth more than a child".

With a growing number of high-profile Republicans speaking out against Moore as additional allegations surfaced, Republican strategist Scott Jennings called the election a "no-win scenario", for the party, according to the Times report.

Trump has still not said if he believes Moore's accusers are lying and he has not formally endorsed the former judge's campaign. "We get the baggage of him winning and every day the story is a question of whether you believe the women", he said.
