Trump Records Robocall for Roy Moore Ahead of Senate Vote

President Donald Trump has recorded a robocall endorsing Republican candidate Roy Moore ahead of Tuesday’s Senate election in Alabama. White House press secretary Raj Shah confirmed Trump’s participation in the call Saturday night after multiple news reports earlier in the day, CNN reports. In his most direct endorsement of Moore—who is accused of sexual misconduct by numerous women—Trump describes the candidate as “the guy we need to pass our Make America Great Again agenda” in the call. “We need Roy voting for us and stopping illegal immigration and crime, rebuilding a stronger military and protecting the Second Amendment and our pro-life values,” Trump reportedly says in the call. He warns that “if Alabama elects liberal Democrat Doug Jones, all of our progress will be stopped full.” Alabama residents are expected to hear the robocall Monday. Trump’s support for Moore comes at a time when many lawmakers are seeking to distance themselves from the candidate, who has been accused of pursuing sexual relationships with underage girls.
