Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” White House legislative affairs director Marc Short said President Donald Trump would be campaigning for Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore if he did not have “concerns” about the sexual contact misconduct allegations against Moore.
Short said “We have serious concerns about the allegations that have been made, but we also believe that all of this information is out there for the people of Alabama. Roy Moore has been a public servant for decades in Alabama. He has run multiple times. The people of Alabama know best what to do and the right decision to make here.”
He continued, “Obviously George If he did not believe that the women’s accusations were credible, he would be down campaigning for Roy Moore. He has not done that. He has concerns about the accusations. But he’s also concerned that these accusations are 38 years old. Roy Moore has been in public service for decades, and the accusations did not arise until a month before the election. So we are concerned about several aspects of the story. We are very concerned about the allegations.”
He added, “I don’t think you have seen him go down there and campaign for him. I don’t think you have seen him issue an endorsement. You’ve not seen him issue robocalls. I think he thinks at this point. It’s best for the people of Alabama to make the decision for their state.”
