Transcript: Trump: Roy Moore Will 'Step Aside' if Sexual Misconduct Allegations are True

President Trump believes Roy Moore will “do the right thing and step aside” as a candidate for Alabama’s Senate race if the allegations of sexual misconduct are true.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders delivered the message to reporters, but clarified "Like most Americans, the president believes we cannot allow a mere allegation -- in this case one from many years ago -- to destroy a person's life." Trump’s statement comes after the Washington Post first reported 70-year-old Moore allegedly pursued four teenage girls when he was in his 30s.

One of the women, now aged 53, allege he pursued her when she was just 14-years-old.

The statute of limitations on these claims have since passed.

Moore lashed out over twitter, declaring the “Obama-Clinton Machine’s liberal media lapdogs” are trying to silence his “spiritual battle.” “I believe you and I have a duty to stand up and fight back against the forces of evil waging an all-out war on our conservative values!” Moore then declaring, “I will NEVER GIVE UP the fight!” The report already has members of the GOP distancing themselves from the gun-toting firebrand.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, called on Moore to drop out of the race “if these allegations are true.” The special election is set to be held in December to fill Jeff Sessions’s vacant seat.
