President Donald Trump repeated his support for Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore on Twitter on Friday.
“VOTE ROY MOORE!” he wrote, reminding Alabama voters that he needed a Republican in the Senate to help him pass his agenda:
LAST thing the Make America Great Again Agenda needs is a Liberal Democrat in Senate where we have so little margin for victory already. The Pelosi/Schumer Puppet Jones would vote against us 100% of the time. He’s bad on Crime, Life, Border, Vets, Guns & Military. VOTE ROY MOORE!

Trump coined a new nickname for Moore’s Democratic opponent, Doug Jones, describing him as “Puppet Jones,” who would support Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer’s agenda.
“He’s bad on Crime, Life, Border, Vets, Guns & Military,” Trump continued.
The president plans to rally supporters on Friday night in Pensacola, Florida, which is about 20 miles from the Alabama border.
The special election will be held on December 12.
