Donald Trump Responds After Humiliating Alabama Defeat

“Trump Says He Didn’t Think ‘Roy Moore’ Would Be Able To Win The Election’ After Alabama Defeat.”

Donald Trump has claimed he never believed failed Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore could win in Alabama, saying the "deck was stacked against him".

Mr Trump endorsed Mr Moore despite a number of sexual harassment allegations against the former Alabama justice.

Ahead of the vote, the US president said Mr Moore "totally denied" the claims and told White House reporters they "have to listen to him, also".
The President boosted Mr Moore's campaign on Saturday, saying: “Get out and vote for Roy Moore. Do it. Do it. We cannot afford, the future of this country cannot afford to lose the seat."
Shortly before polls opened on Tuesday, he said "the people of Alabama will do the right thing" and vote for Mr Moore.
“The people of Alabama will do the right thing. Doug Jones is Pro-Abortion, weak on Crime, Military and Illegal Immigration, Bad for Gun Owners and Veterans and against the WALL. Jones is a Pelosi/Schumer Puppet. Roy Moore will always vote with us. VOTE ROY MOORE!”

But, following Tuesday's Democrat victory in the conservative stronghold, the US President said he never thought Mr Moore could win.
"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 US President said in a Twitter post on Wednesday.
"I was right! Roy worked hard but the deck was stacked against him!"
