Trump backs Alabama Republican Senate candidate Moore.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump endorsed U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore on Monday, throwing his weight behind the embattled Alabama Republican ahead of next week's special election in the state that has been rocked by allegations of sexual misconduct.

In a post on Twitter, Trump said Republicans needed Moore to win in order to secure votes on key issues such as immigration even as other Republicans have backed away from the candidate.

"Democrats refusal to give even one vote for massive Tax Cuts is why we need Republican Roy Moore to win in Alabama," he wrote.

Trump's tweet is his strongest endorsement of Moore since the sexual misconduct accusations surfaced against the former Alabama judge last month. Moore has called the allegations false.
