Dates on Trump File reflect when something happens, not when it’s first reported.
Less than two weeks before Alabama’s special Senate election, Donald Trump and the Republican National Committee endorse alleged child molester Roy Moore.
Trump’s support for Moore comes despite numerous women who say that Moore pursued relationships and sexual encounters with them when he was in his 30s and they were teenagers. One woman told the Washington Post that she was 14 when Moore sexually assaulted her. Moore denies the allegations, but pressed in an interview on Nov. 10 about whether he dated teenagers, he answered “not generally, no.” He has since been more emphatic in his denials.
Many Republicans in Washington, including Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan, say they believe the accusations against Moore and that Moore should drop out of the race before election day.
