Trump Defends Roy Moore Amid Sexual Assault Allegations: 'He Totally Denies It'

Moore who has been accused of pursuing romantic relationships with teenagers while in his 30s said he first noticed his future wife eight years

The president spoke to reporters before heading to Mar-a-Lago, where he'll be spending Thanksgiving.

"We don't need a liberal Democrat in the seat", Trump said before boarding Marine One.

Six women have accused the Republican Moore of pursuing romantic relationships with them when they were teenagers and he was an assistant district attorney in his 30s.

President Trump on Tuesday said it was a good thing that so many women are coming forward to talk about the sexual harassment and assault they've suffered at the hands of powerful men.

Moore strategist Dean Young said Moore's accusers, the news media, and establishment Republicans were making up the allegations against Moore.

Martinez's partner radioed that the pair needed assistance. "His partner remains in the local hospital in serious condition". Trump says a second officer injured Sunday was "brutally beaten and badly, badly hurt" but "looks like he'll make it".

Trump also said he will announce next week whether he will campaign for Moore, who has been abandoned by the National Republican Senatorial Committee and the Republican National Committee in the wake of the accusations. Top Republicans have called for Moore to leave the race, and initially the White House indicated Moore should step aside if the allegations were true. Leigh Corfman told the Washington Post she was 14 years old - Moore was 32 - when he approached her outside of a courtroom and asked for her phone number while her mother was busy at a child custody hearing.

"I'll be letting you know next week", he said, when asked whether he will campaign with Moore. He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear. He pointed to Moore's assertion that the candidate did nothing wrong.

Trump did not answer questions about whether he believes Moore's denials.

"Let me just tell you: Roy Moore denies it". "I think it's a very special time because a lot of things are coming out and I think that's good for our society".

Moore, 70, has denied any wrongdoing. The October 2016 release of the "Access Hollywood" tape revealed that Trump bragged in in 2005 that he could grope and forcibly kiss women without their consent.
