Transcript for Trump breaks silence to defend Roy Moore
Now to president trump breaking his silence to back Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore. The president who's faced more than a dozen allegations of sexual assault and harassment dismissed them and attack his democratic rival. Cecilia Vega has the latest. Reporter: Good morning to you. 12 days after the Roy Moore allegations first surfaced, president trump is finally weighing in and he is saying essentially that he would rather see Roy Moore, an accused child molester win this senate seat than a Democrat. Overnight Roy Moore went on TV in Alabama to issue a full-throated denial. I didn't have any wrongful relationships, any -- engage in any sexual misconduct with an overage woman. It's very hurtful not only to my family but reputation because this is something that you just don't do. Reporter: This as his campaign for senate celebrates a big boost from the white house. We don't believe these women. But we're not going to talk about that. We're going to talk about helping Donald Trump making America great again. Should Roy Moore resign, Mr. President? Reporter: The president finally broke his silence coming to his defense. What is your message to women, sir, during this pivotal moment in our country where we're talking about sexual misconduct? You've had your own allegations against you. What do you say to women? Let me just tell you, Roy Moore denies it. That's all I can say. He denies it and, by the way, he totally denies it. Reporter: And attacking his democratic opponent Doug Jones. We don't need a liberal person in there, a Democrat, Jones, I've looked at his record. It's terrible on crime. Reporter: Now the president was also asked if he would campaign for Roy Moore. He left open that possibility, George. He said he would get back to us on that one next week. Yeah, and, Cecilia on Sunday his assistant was telling us the fact that the president wasn't campaigning for Moore was a sign he wasn't questioning the women's accounts. Very sharp evolution in the white house story over the last week. Reporter: Exactly. A real evolution. You know for days the white house party line has been this should be up to the Alabama voters to decide. Ivanka Trump was one of the first to come forward and say she essentially believes Roy Moore's accusers and kellyanne Conway basically said what the president said yesterday, she bashed the Democrat in this race. In the end it seems the president sided with her and, of course, Steve Bannon, George, and sticking with Roy Moore. Yeah, and sticking with his base. Okay, Cecilia Vega, thanks very much.
