Tonight Trump urged voters in Alabama in Tuesday’s Senate special election to,
“Get out and vote for Roy Moore! Do it. Do it.”
At a campaign-style rally in Pensacola, Florida Trump said,
“We cannot afford– this country, the future of this country– cannot afford to lose a seat in the very, very close United States Senate. We can’t afford it, folks. We can’t. We can’t afford to have a liberal Democrat who is completely controlled by Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. We can’t do it.”
Trump also mocked one of the women who has accused Moore of pursuing a sexual relationship with her when she was a teenager and he was in his 30s. Beverly Young Nelson, said Friday that she’d added “notes” under Moore’s note and signature in her high school yearbook, which she’d previously offered as evidence of their relationship. Moore’s campaign has alleged that the entire entry was a forgery. Trump chided the woman’s lawyer, Gloria Allred.
“So did you see what happened today, you know, the yearbook? Did you see that? There was a little mistake made, she started writing things in the yearbook. Ah, what are we gonna do –Gloria Allred, anytime you see her, you know something’s going wrong.”
The first time Trump made reference to the Republican Senate hopeful was in response to an audience member.
“This guy’s screaming, we want Roy Moore. He’s right.”
Trump also bragged about his 2016 election victory, mocking Hillary Clinton for failing to pay enough attention to the states of Michigan and Wisconsin, crucial parts of Trump’s victory.
“I’m guessing the Russians advised her not to go. They will lie and leak and smear, because they don’t want to accept the results of an election where we won by a landslide.
Your voice will never, ever be ignored again.”
He also mocked the Democratic “resistance” to his presidency Friday night, chiding Clinton as the crowd chanted
“Lock her up!”
“They’re resisting the will of the American people– that’s what they’re resisting.
This is a rigged system. This is a sick system from the inside. And, you know, there’s no country like our country, but we have a lot of sickness in some of our institutions, and we’re working very hard. We’ve got a lot of them straightened out, but we do have– we really do– a rigged system in this country, and we have to change it. Terrible. Terrible.”
Trump bragged about economic gains during his tenure and said he’d rolled back more government regulations than Abraham Lincoln.
“Honest Abe Lincoln, he was a regulation guy. Can you believe it? He was a regulation guy.”
He also pointed out supporters with “blacks for Trump” signs.
“Look at these guys, blacks for Trump. I love you. I love you. I love you. By the way, now that you bring it up, black home ownership just hit the highest level it’s ever been in the history of our country. Congratulations.
“I’ll just tell you folks, you are in good hands. That’s all I can say.”
Yes, I guess we are…
