President Trump packed the essence of his argument asking Alabama voters to support Roy Moore in a single Tweet. The new 280-character limit is treating the President well.
The people of Alabama will do the right thing. Doug Jones is Pro-Abortion, weak on Crime, Military and Illegal Immigration, Bad for Gun Owners and Veterans and against the WALL. Jones is a Pelosi/Schumer Puppet. Roy Moore will always vote with us. VOTE ROY MOORE!

Regardless of who wins today, this support for Moore will be attached to the President because of their shared denials of accusations of sexual misconduct made against them. As I noted before, it’s pretty much impossible for the President to denounce him without making things complicated for himself, so he’s chosen to go all in. The Republicans are generally in a lurch over this. They were opposed to Moore before but most have gone silent in light of the President’s support.
