Sen. Orrin Hatch: Trump Didn’t Have ‘Any Choice’ But to Support Roy Moore


This morning, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to officially endorse embattled Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore. This came on the heels of the president letting it be known for days that he was supporting the ex-judge who has been accused of sexually abusing teenage girls.

With the president throwing his weight behind an alleged child molester, Republicans are now coming to terms with Moore as a potential member of the Senate and are signaling that since the race is a binary choice, better Moore than a Democrat. Just take a look at what Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) said when asked about Trump’s support of Moore.

Meanwhile, former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney — who is looking at running for Hatch’s Senate seat next year should Hatch retire — came out strongly against Moore following Trump’s endorsement today, stating that “no majority is worth losing our honor.”
