Trump: I Was Right About Roy Moore

In a much-anticipated tweet early Wednesday morning following the Alabama election, President Trump wrote, “The reason I originally endorsed Luther Strange (and his numbers went up mightily), is that I said Roy Moore will not be able to win the General Election. I was right! Roy worked hard but the deck was stacked against him!” Democrat Doug Jones ultimately pulled off a hard-fought victory on Tuesday night in Alabama’s U.S. Senate election, stunning the nation with the unexpected results. Moore faced numerous sexual-misconduct allegations during the course of his campaign, including from women who were underage when they were reportedly targeted.
