Trump tweets Doug Jones 'would be a disaster'
MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI) —
Sunday morning President Trump took to Twitter about Alabama US Senate candidate Doug Jones.
"The last things we need in Alabama and the US Senate is a Schumer/Pelosi puppet ..." Trump states. "... Jones would be a disaster!"
Trump told reporters earlier this week that he will announce next week whether he will campaign on Moore's behalf, according to the Associated Press.
The president endorsed Luther Strange , but Strange lost in a runoff to republican candidate Roy Moore. In recent weeks, Moore has repeatedly denied allegations from eight woman dating back decades, some of whom allege sexual misconduct by Moore.
Multiple Republicans, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan, have both called on Moore to leave the race in light of the accusations. The Republican National Committee and the National Republican Senatorial Committee have pulled their support for Moore's campaign.
Jones will face Moore in the Dec. 12 Alabama special election to fill the remainder of Jeff Sessions’ unexpired term.
