Trump in robocall for Moore: He will ‘help me steer this country back on track’

President Trump is urging Alabama voters to support Roy Moore in a new robocall for the embattled GOP Senate candidate’s campaign.

In the recording, first reported by ABC News, Trump says electing Moore will help his “‘Make America Great Again’ agenda.”

“Roy is a conservative who will help me steer this country back on track after eight years of the Obama disaster,” Trump says in the call. “We need Roy voting for us and stopping illegal immigration and crime, rebuilding a stronger military and protecting the Second Amendment and our pro-life values.”

Trump slams Democratic candidate Doug Jones in the robocall, calling him “bad for our military” and a “puppet of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.”

Trump threw his full support behind Moore last week, but this is his most direct campaigning activity for the candidate. At a campaign rally in Pensacola, Fla., on Friday, Trump told his supporters in Alabama to vote for Moore in the Tuesday election. 

“We need a Republican in the House, we need a Republican in the Senate. We need more of them,” he said Friday.

Moore, who is polling slightly ahead of Jones, has been accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct. The women said Moore pursued them as teenagers, including one who said that Moore touched her sexually when she was 14 and he was 32. Moore has denied the allegations.
