But the president said he & nothing against & # 39; has from the polarizing republican who last cost the GOP a normally safe seat when a cascade of allegations of sexual misconduct fell on his head.
& # 39; Republicans cannot allow themselves to lose the Senate seat again in the Great State of Alabama. This time it will be for six years, not just for Two, & Trump wrote in a paid or tweets. & # 39; I have NOTHING against Roy Moore and wanted to win him unlike many other Republican leaders. But he didn't, and probably not. & # 39;
& # 39; If Alabama does not elect a Senate Republican in 2020, many of the incredible gains we made during my presidency could be lost, including our Pro-Life victories, & # 39; he added. & # 39; Roy Moore cannot win and the consequences will be devastating … Judges and Supreme Court Judges! & # 39;
