What did the White House say?
White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters told The Hill that "there is nothing on [Trump’s] schedule at this time" as far as campaign stops for Moore.
Moore was accused by multiple women of pursuing them as teenagers when he was in his early 30s. One woman alleged Moore molested her when she was just 14. Moore denied the allegations and claimed the story was planted by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).
In the wake of the allegations, many elected called for Moore to exit the race. McConnell said Moore would immediately be subject to an ethics investigation if he is elected to the Senate.
Unlike many party leaders, Trump did not call for Moore to exit the race, and defended the embattled candidate on Twitter, arguing that Democrat Doug Jones would be a “disaster.”

"We don't need a liberal person in there, a Democrat,” Trump told reporters last week.
“He denies it. He totally denies it," Trump added. “Roy Moore denies it — that’s all I can say.”
