White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway defended President Trump’s decision to endorse Alabama Senate Candidate Roy Moore on Wednesday, referencing Trump’s high moral standards.
“The president has tremendous moral standards. He has said, the White House has said the allegations are troubling,” Conway said in an interview with CNN.
“The president has said the following: the allegations are troubling, Roy Moore has denied them, the president said they’re 40 years old,” she said.
“Nobody came forward before, the guy’s been on the ballot many times, Doug Jones is a liberal Democrat the president has said, and he doesn’t want a liberal Democrat representing Alabama in the United States Senate,” Conway added.
Conway’s defense came after Trump endorsed Moore on Monday, saying the vote was needed to move the Republican agenda.
“Democrats refusal to give even one vote for massive Tax Cuts is why we need Republican Roy Moore to win in Alabama,” Trump said in a Tweet on Monday.
“We need his vote on stopping crime, illegal immigration, Border Wall, Military, Pro Life, V.A., Judges 2nd Amendment and more. No to Jones, a Pelosi/Schumer Puppet!,” he continued.
