Trump Weighs In on Roy Moore Allegations

In a statement provided to The Daily Beast via White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, President Donald Trump weighed in on the allegations of child molestation against Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore. “Like most Americans the president believes we cannot allow a mere allegation, in this case one from many years ago, to destroy a person’s life,” the statement reads. “However, the president also believes that if these allegations are true, Judge Moore will do the right thing and step aside.” By putting the ball in Moore’s hands, Trump does not go nearly as far as many other Senate Republicans who have demanded that Moore withdraw from the race.
