Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders spoke to the press on Air Force One and went on-record.
NEW: @PressSec said re: Roy Moore that President Trump “believes if allegations are true he will do the right thing and step aside.”

Yesterday, The Washington Post broke a bombshell report that Roy Moore allegedly initiated sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl when he was 32 years old. Three other women accuse the judge of pursing them when they were in their late teens.
In a highly-contested GOP primary, Trump backed Luther Strange, who some perceived to be as part of the “establishment” especially since Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell backed his candidacy. Meanwhile, Steve Bannon and several other Trump supporters backed Moore. Moore ultimately won the primary and is supposed to face off in the general election on December 12. As of now, he remains defiant as several GOP senators have called for him to drop out of the race.
