With the Alabama Senate election just days away, President Trump is gearing up to provide some indirect support after it was decided that he’d no longer explicitly campaign for Moore.
With the narrative concerning the allegations against Moore crumbling, he has a very good shot at pulling out a win and keeping the seat in Republican hands. While Trump recently swore off publicly backing Moore, after weeks of boldly standing by his side, the president has found a crafty way to still help him out.
As reported at the Daily Mail, President Donald Trump will hold a campaign-style rally Friday in Pensacola, Florida, which is barely across the state line from Alabama and shares a major media market with the state.
When asked about the rally’s purpose, Trump made little effort to hide the true intent of his trip, tweeting that he would be in Pensacola to make America great again and that he needs Moore in the Senate to do that.
“LAST thing the Make America Great Again Agenda needs is a Liberal Democrat in Senate where we have so little margin for victory already,” Trump said. “VOTE ROY MOORE!
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders maintained on Monday that the “allegations are troubling” but said that Trump still believes the issue “is something the people of Alabama should decide.”
Up until recently, Trump had been tweeting out his public support for Moore and standing by him in light of the candidate’s denials.
“He says it didn’t happen. You know, you have to listen to him also,” Trump said at the White House as he left for the Thanksgiving holiday.
With the race neck and neck, and a win so crucial, Trump has resumed his public support of Moore after a brief hiatus. In a Friday tweet supporting Moore, he mentioned the “little margin for victory” his party currently has in the U.S. Senate.
“The Pelosi/Schumer Puppet Jones would vote against us 100% of the time. He’s bad on Crime, Life, Border, Vets, Guns & Military,” Trump wrote.
The president seems determined to keep the seat in Republican hands, and it appears the people of Alabama feel the same way, as Moore maintains an advantage in the polls. But we won’t know for sure until Tuesday, when the real fun starts.
