Trump to record robocall for Roy Moore

While President Donald Trump was inside the Pensacola Bay Center auditorium in Florida on Friday night, urging people to vote for Senate candidate Roy Moore, Ivanka Trump's pointed comment on accusations against the Alabama Republican was plastered on a political ad outside.

Speaking to a raucous rally crowd in Florida, Mr Trump said the U.S. military is dealing the Islamic State "one brutal defeat after another".

The President's endorsement of Mr Moore and his mention of Ms Nelson during his address show that he has chosen to stand with the accused rather than women who say Mr Moore abused them.

Moore faces allegations of sexual misconduct from numerous women-aaccusations his opponent, Doug Jones, has used to gain voters' support.

The senior US Senator from Alabama said he wrote in another Republican, but refused to disclose the Republican's name.

"Gloria Allred, you know anytime you see her you know something is going wrong", Trump added, before launching into how the country, and his agenda for it, couldn't afford the loss of a Republican seat in the Senate.

Shelby said late last month that he didn't vote for Moore, but instead wrote in a "distinguished Republican". Trump asked at the rally.

"We can not afford, the future of this country can not afford to lose the seat", Mr Trump said, referring to his party's razor-thin 52-48 advantage in that chamber of Congress.

Mr Shah said the president and White House have made clear that the Moore allegations are "troubling and concerning" and "should be taken seriously". After Trump made it official on Monday (Tuesday NZT) that he supports Moore, the Republican National Committee turned back on the spigot of cash to help Moore win.

"I understand where the president is coming from; we would've liked to retain that seat in the US Senate", Shelby said. "We can't afford to have a liberal Democrat who is completely controlled by Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer", he added, referring to the top Democrats in the House of Representatives and Senate, respectively.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell originally said that Mr Moore should withdraw from the race, but on Sunday he said he was "going to let the people of Alabama make the call".
