Some questioned the value of Trump's support after the campaign speech he gave for odd last an hour and a half, went off-topic, and even included the president questioning whether it was wise for him to be there. That doesn't really tell us anything more than what Trump's approval ratings say, but we're talking here about the perceptions of Trump's popularity.
Voters in Alabama elected conservative firebrand Judge Roy Moore as the Republican nominee for a US Senate seat on Tuesday, dealing a blow to Donald Trump who backed his rival. Unusual was appointed to the Senate seat in February when Trump picked former Senator Jeff Sessions to be attorney general.
Trump, Pence, and McConnell's quick embrace of Moore raises the question of exactly what views a candidate would have to espouse in order to be considered too extreme for the Republican Party. "I do have confidence", Trump said. "To me, things like that make us look like a bunch of backwoods rednecks", said Barry, 68, of Pelham.
"You're going to get an opportunity to tell them what you think of the elites that run the country", Bannon said. After all, despite the endorsements of figures like Bannon and Sarah Palin, not even Moore was a pure Trumpian populist.
And several of Trump's past pro-Strange Twitter posts disappeared, according to a project documenting the president's deleted tweets by the news site ProPublica. "Remember, these are the same people that have tried to destroy Donald J. Trump from the first day he announced for office". It's also a place where campaign commercials often depict politicians at a church, praying or holding a Bible.
The Alabama Republican candidate for U.S. Senate who just knocked off an incumbent urged Congress not to seat U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison in 2006 because he is Muslim. "Ironically, given who Trump supported, what got Moore nominated is what got Trump nominated", said Anna Greenberg, a Democratic pollster. As Moore might say, God help us. Moore was first removed from the bench for refusing to remove a Ten Commandments monument from a state building.
Earlier this month, Moore against caused controversy after he appeared to refer to Native Americans and Asians as "reds" and "yellows" in a campaign speech. In 2016, Moore openly defied Obergefell v. Hodges, the US Supreme Court decision that legalized so-called same-sex marriage nationwide. Throughout the Senate race, unusual had been dogged by criticisms of accepting the appointment from a scandal-battered governor when his office was in charge of corruption investigations.
Could there a be glimmer of hope in the eyes of Alabama democrats? Even in a state where political corruption has always been endemic, the appointment - which followed Jeff Sessions' elevation to the role of attorney general - raised eyebrows. After appointing Strange, Bentley eventually resigned and took a plea deal.
During his time as USA attorney, the federal investigation into the 1963 bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church Bombing, carried out by four KKK members, that killed four young African-American girls was re-opened.
Due to Alabama's heavily-Republican electoral leaning, Democratic challenger Doug Jones has a steep uphill battle to stop Moore from winning the Senate seat. State GOP observers said that hurt odd badly even with voters who may have been more inclined to vote for him - and his association with McConnell and other GOP establishment leaders didn't help either, even if he had Trump's blessing.
