Moore, a Republican, has faced a litany of sexual misconduct allegations. All the Moore memorabilia, fundraising, and messaging could be quickly repurposed for a governor's race.
Lindsey O. Graham, R-S.C., said he viewed Trump's comments as "definitely trying to throw a lifeline to Roy Moore". The Hall of Fame basketball player, who considered running for governor of the state in 2014, said if he still lived in Alabama, he would vote for Democratic Senate candidate Doug Jones.
A retired Gasdsen, Ala. law enforcement officer says she and her fellow officers were told to keep Republican Senate Candidate Roy Moore away from the high school cheerleading team because it was known that Moore preferred young girls.
The president later suggested that Republicans "can't let Schumer/Pelosi win this race", not mentioning Moore by name in either tweet but each time criticizing Jones in a way that made clear that Trump supported the controversial Republican nominee.
But Trump - himself the object of allegations of sexual misconduct by several women during his presidential campaign - on Sunday shrugged off such appeals. "We get the baggage of him winning and every day the story is a question of whether you believe the women", he said. The special election is scheduled for 12 December.
In the wake of the allegations, Republican leaders scrambled to find a way to block Mr Moore as a candidate.
"The last thing we need in Alabama and the U.S. Senate is a Schumer/Pelosi puppet who is WEAK on Crime, WEAK on the Border, Bad for our Military and our great Vets, Bad for our 2nd Amendment, AND WANTS TO RAISES TAXES TO THE SKY", he wrote from Florida, referring to Democrats' congressional leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi. "Roy Moore to me, when he brought in Steve Bannon, should have been disqualified".
In the tape, Trump is heard bragging that he can kiss and grab women without their permission because he is famous. "Forty years is a long time", Trump said, pointing to the amount of time that has passed since the alleged behavior.
Trump also hedged on the cases of Sen Al Franken and Rep. John Conyers, two powerful congressional Democrats who have been snared in the national dragnet of sex abuse claims.
