President Trump in an early morning tweet on Wednesday said he endorsed Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.) in the Alabama Senate Republican primary because Roy Moore would not be able to win the general election.

“The reason I originally endorsed Luther Strange (and his numbers went up mightily), is that I said Roy Moore will not be able to win the General Election,” the president said.

“I was right!” he added. “Roy worked hard but the deck was stacked against him!”


The tweet came hours after Democrat Doug Jones defeated Moore, who was the target of multiple sexual misconduct allegations, in the Alabama Senate race. It is the first time in a quarter century that Alabama will send a Democrat to the Senate.

Multiple Republicans urged Moore to drop out of the race, but Trump endorsed him despite the allegations. Trump also recorded a robocall for the former judge and urged supporters at a campaign rally last week to “get out and vote for Roy Moore.”

The president late Tuesday congratulated Jones on a “hard fought victory”

“The write-in votes played a very big factor, but a win is a win,” Trump tweeted. “The people of Alabama are great, and the Republicans will have another shot at this seat in a very short period of time. It never ends!”
