“I need Alabama to go vote for Roy Moore. It is so important,” Trump says in audio of the robocall obtained by ABC News.

Politico first reported that Trump would record the robocall.
“If Alabama elects liberal democrat Doug Jones, all of our progress will be stopped cold,” Trump says in the call.
“Roy Moore is the guy we need to pass our ‘Make America Great Again’ agenda,” he added.
Trump has not appeared with Moore on the campaign trial. Last week, the president issued a full endorsement for the Republican candidate, whom multiple women have accused of sexual misconduct while they were teenagers and Moore was in his 30s.
On Friday, Trump urged attendees at a rally in Pensacola, Fla., to vote for Moore.
A Real Clear Politics average of polls shows Moore with a nearly 4 point lead over Jones heading into the final days of the campaign.
