Trump Tweets Out Support For Roy Moore: ‘Last Thing We Need … Is a Schumer/Pelosi Puppet’

Last week, following a lengthy period of relative silence on the matter, President Donald Trump broke his silence on Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore and essentially endorsed the embattled ex-Alabama judge. He told reporters that we didn’t need a “liberal Democrat” in that Senate seat and said that Moore “totally denies” the allegations that he had pursued sexual relationships with teenage girls when he was in his 30s.

This morning, the president took to Twitter to double down on his public remarks:

As you can see in the tweet above, POTUS is taking aim at Moore’s Democratic opponent Doug Jones. Besides stating that Jones would be “WEAK on crime” — despite Jones having prosecuted the KKK — Trump is also labeling the Democrat as a “Schumer/Pelosi puppet” who will raise taxes and be bad for the military.

UPDATE 9:35 AM ET: The president sent out an additional tweet noting that he originally endorsed Luther Strange in the GOP primary while reiterating that he wanted Jones to be defeated.
