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". "America is ours to love and to cherish and to protect and to take care of".
Just four days before a crucial special election for a US Senate seat in Alabama, President Donald Trump has again told Alabamans to "Get out and vote for Roy Moore", the Republican candidate dogged by sexual misconduct allegations.
Attorney Gloria Allred (R) and Beverly Young Nelson hold up a picture showing a message and a signature of Roy Moore during a press conference on November 13, 2017, in NY, alledging that Roy Moore sexually assaulted Nelson when she was a minor in Alabama without her consent. "Jones will always vote against what we must do for our Country".
He said voters who cast a ballot for Democratic candidate Doug Jones are "voting against the President who they put in office at the highest level". He touched briefly on the closely watched Senate race that will be decided when voters in next-door Alabama go to the polls on Tuesday.
Multiple women have come forward to accuse Moore of pursuing them when they were teenagers, including one who said he groped her when she was 14 and another who said he assaulted her at age 16. Mr Moore has denied the allegations. "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.
The senior US Senator from Alabama said he wrote in another Republican, but refused to disclose the Republican's name.
"It's not that he's not going to Alabama".
Steve Bannon, former chief White House strategist and ardent Moore supporter, presents the election as a choice between Trump and his 2016 presidential election rival Hillary Clinton. "Pensacola is Trump country". On Tuesday, Mr McConnell said if Mr Moore was elected, "he would immediately have an issue with the Ethics Committee".
Shelby said the he believed the women who have accused the GOP Senate nominee, noting that there was "a lot of smoke, gotta be some fire somewhere", but understood why President Donald Trump was continuing to back Moore.
