President Trump officially endorsed Judge Roy Moore for Senate on Monday, releasing a statement that confirmed the President phoned the GOP congressional hopeful and “endorsed Judge Moore’s campaign.”
According to Fox News, White House officials announced the President’s decision after the one-on-one phone call between the two politicians; where Trump made it clear that “we need” Moore’s vote to conquer a host of hot-button issues, such as illegal immigration, tax reform, and others.
“The President had a positive call with Judge Roy Moore during which they discussed the state of the Alabama Senate race and the President endorsed Judge Moore’s campaign,” Principal Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah said.
Before the White House’s statement, Moore confirmed the President’s endorsement on social media, saying “Just got off the phone with President Trump who offered his full support.”
“‘Go get ’em, Roy!’ – President Trump. Just got off the phone with President Trump who offered his full support and said he needs a fighter to help him in the US Senate. I look forward to fighting alongside the President to #MAGA!” Moore tweeted.
