Trump Begs Alabamans to ‘Go Vote for Roy Moore’ in Robocall: ‘It Is So Important’

The campaign of Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore — a man accused of child molestation — released a robocall today in which President Donald Trump can be heard enthusiastically supporting the Republican nominee.

In the recording, Trump said the following:

“Hi, this is President Donald Trump and I need Alabama to go vote for Roy Moore. We’re already making America great again. I’m going to make America safer and stronger and better than ever before. We need that seat. We need Roy voting for us. But we need that seat. We need Roy voting for us. I am stopping illegal immigration and crime. We’re building a stronger military and protecting the Second Amendment and our pro-life values. But if Alabama elects liberal Democrat Doug Jones all of our progress will be stopped cold.”

Trump went on to call Moore “the guy we need to pass our Make America Great Again agenda” in the tape recorded on Saturday.

“Roy is a conservative who will help steer this country back on track after eight years of the Obama disaster,” said the president regarding the controversial former Alabama Supreme Court justice who has been accused of sexual misconduct and predatory behavior by numerous women.

Despite recording the robocall, the White House has stated that Trump will not visit Alabama to urge Americans to vote for Moore in the special election on Tuesday. However, he did hold a rally just across the state border in Pensacola, Florida on Friday in which he loudly endorsed the candidate.
