The allegations that Roy Moore made unwanted sexual advances to teenage girls are "very troubling", President Trump's top spokeswoman said Tuesday, but Trump endorsed Moore's campaign anyway because the president wants the Senate seat to go to a fellow Republican.

He said Mr Romney, who has been a vocal critic of Mr Moore, "hid behind" his Mormon faith to avoid the Vietnam War.

During a stump speech for Alabama Senate hopeful Roy Moore, political strategist Steve Bannon took a shot at Mitt Romney and his family, and now Utah political leaders are reacting.

"We need his vote on stopping crime, illegal immigration, Border Wall, Military, Pro Life, V.A., Judges 2nd Amendment and more", Trump wrote.

As for the allegations against the former judge, Trump has indicated he's satisfied with his subsequent denials. It was explained that a number of individuals have access to keys to the sign and one of them, who was not identified, posted the message.

Bannon's appearance was a welcome development for Moore, who has been shunned by the Republican Party's biggest stars. Al Franken should resign amid allegations of sexual misconduct involving women.

"I think they're afraid I'm going to take Alabama values to Washington", Mr Moore told the crowd of supporters.

When you're dealing with a story that involves rape or harassment or abuse or molestation or child porn or anything that falls under the rubric of criminal behavior, you should call those things rape and harassment and abuse and molestation and child pornography.

Leigh Corfman, another accuser, also alleged in a Washington Post report that she was 14 years old in early 1979 when Moore kissed her inside a courthouse.

"This is not something he's struggling with", one unnamed senior White House official told the publication, referring to Trump's belief of Moore's denials. "I had hoped earlier he would withdraw as a candidate".

Last month, Corfman came forward with allegations that Moore met her outside a courthouse in the late 1970s and pursued a relationship with her even though she was only 14.

While the RNC is working with Moore, the NRSC will continue to stay out of the Senate race, according to CNN host Jake Tapper. The special election is Dec. 12.

But Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida signaled that he thinks an ethics investigation may not be the best idea. A chance to make their voices heard in a state that has silenced them for too long. "We'll see what happens". "Moore is accused of sexual assault". By backing out of supporting Roy Moore, the GOP publicly acknowledged that they knew it was a bad idea, and jumping back in to support him proves that they still don't care about endorsing this bad idea so long as the ends justify the means.

Other Republicans, however, have doubled-down on their condemnation of Moore.
