President Donald Trump has fully embraced "Judge" Roy Moore, an anti-establishment, homophobic, Islamophobic, racist, right wing religious extremist birther to fill the U.S. Senate seat Jeff Sessions left to become Trump's Attorney General.
"While Republicans in the House working with President Trump approved a measure to repeal Obamacare, it died in the Senate".
Prior to removing references to Strange, Trump deleted a tweet congratulating Moore and directing the Alabama judge to "WIN in Nov!" The president said he "sounds like a really great guy who ran a fantastic race".
If Roy Moore wins the special election on December 12, it could mean trouble for McConnell when the fiery conservative is sworn in. According to media reports, on Monday night Trump consulted with a group of conservative activists about what kind of fallout he could face if Moore won - and had been complaining about having to stump for unusual throughout the campaign.
On Tuesday morning, Trump had tweeted: "ALABAMA, get out and vote for Luther Strange - he has proven to me that he will never let you down!"
"And I'm calling him".
Moore is the more Trump-like of the candidates: opinionated, unconcerned about whom he may offend and desperate to upend the elite system that rules the U.S. capital. "And we can not make America good without acknowledging the sovereign source of that goodness. which is almighty God".
The Donald won't survive the swamp that is Washington, D.C. without the close support and advice of people who actually believe in the same things he does. Tomorrow I will go back to work with President Trump and do all I can to advance his agenda over the next few weeks.
Are the Star Trek: Discovery premiere ratings stellar for CBS?
Star Trek and Twin Peaks are very similar in their combination of broad awareness and an intensely devoted cult following. After a 12-year absence, Star Trek returned to its original medium Sunday night - well, for an episode, at least.
Odd was hurt by his association to former Governor Robert Bentley, who appointed him to Sessions's seat in February. He also had the backing of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and the Senate Leadership Fund pumped $7 million into the race.
Moore, a former Alabama Supreme Court chief justice, is a brash candidate who recently spoke about fighting between "reds and yellows" and said in 2015 that "homosexuality should be illegal". Luther Strange, lost the primary runoff in Alabama.
"We have to return the knowledge of God and the Constitution of the United States to the United States Congress", Moore said.
Alabama voters picked Roy Moore over incumbent Sen.
Bannon contended that Kushner pushed Trump to endorse unusual in order to please McConnell, according to the Alabama source.
"The people of Alabama deserve a senator who will put aside partisan rancor", Jones said after Moore's win. And as Republicans, we know what we need to do for this country. "We are thrilled you ran on the #MAGA agenda & we are for you!"
It also signals that many in the grassroots conservative movement that helped propel Mr Trump to the White House are still fighting against the party leadership and its grip on Washington politics during a turbulent period in which Republicans have struggled to deliver on key campaign promises like health care reform.
The Senate Leadership Fund, a group with ties to McConnell, R-Ky., spent an estimated $9 million trying to secure the nomination for odd.
