Donald Trump is 'furious' with Ivanka for Roy Moore comment

Sen. Lindsey Graham appeared on State of the Union to discuss Roy Moore's candidacy in Alabama

"Liberal Jones would be BAD!" he tweeted less than an hour later.

The president said he would announce next week whether he will campaign for Moore, who faces Democrat Doug Jones in a December 12 special election to fill the seat once held by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

On Sunday, Trump redoubled his support for Moore, ignoring the allegations of sexual harassment plaguing the politician's Alabama campaign and branding his opponent as weak on crime, the military and immigration.

President Donald Trump suggested Sunday that he'd rather see an alleged child sex abuser in Congress than a Democratic "puppet" who will not support the Second Amendment and border enforcement. In the tweet, Trump criticized Jones as "WEAK" and "a disaster" and claimed Jones would raise taxes "TO THE SKY". A White House official said Tuesday that Trump's attack on Jones did not amount to a formal endorsement of Moore, only that Trump was communicating that sending the Democrat to Washington would hamper his agenda.

With a growing number of high-profile Republicans speaking out against Moore as additional allegations surfaced, Republican strategist Scott Jennings called the election a "no-win scenario", for the party, according to the Times report. "And what I would tell President Trump: if you think winning with Roy Moore is going to be easy for the Republican Party, you're mistaken".




One Republican senator and sometime Trump critic, Lindsey Graham of SC, said Sunday that having Moore on the ballot was a lose-lose proposition for the party. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), said "that's a political decision by the president and he's definitely trying to throw a lifeline to Roy Moore".

Despite the multiple allegations against Moore - he reportedly was banned from an Alabama mall for repeatedly bothering teen girls - Trump has defended him. "You have to listen to him, also". "A lot of them are Trump voters", Trump said.

Ronna Romney McDaniel, the chairwoman of the Republican National Committee, said Alabama voters will have to be the "judge and jury" on whether Mr Moore is elected. The seat opened up after Republican Jeff Sessions was tapped as USA attorney general.

The campaign quoted two former restaurant employees and a former customer who said they did not remember Nelson working there or Moore eating there.

The following day, he advised that he'd spoken to Moore for the first time.
