Trump Will Not Campaign for Roy Moore

President Donald Trump will not be campaigning for Alabama Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore ahead of his election against Democrat Doug Jones on December 12. Moore has been accused of sexual misconduct with numerous teenage girls. 

The special election was called to fill the Senate seat previously held by now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions. 

Moore has denied all of the allegations against him and has said that the women are lying.

Despite not officially campaigning for Moore, Trump has not been quiet in his opposition to Jones. On Twitter, Trump said that Jones was a "Schumer/Pelosi puppet" who is "WEAK" on issues such as crime, the military, Second Amendment, and border security. Trump said that Jones would be a "disaster" and "BAD" for the Senate.

Since the allegations against Moore surfaced in early November, he has steadily dropped in the polls. Despite this, he has insisted that he will remain in the race.
