That's a huge break from where McConnell and the rest of the Republican establishment are on the Moore issue - and where they hoped Trump would be.
The women who have accused Moore are "Trump voters", the president said, before again stating that Moore "totally denies it". "And you know, we were advised that, you know, he was being suspended from the mall because he would hang around the young girls that worked in the stores", the retired cop said.
Trump repeatedly pointed out that Moore "totally denies" the allegations.
Accompanied by Vice President Mike Pence (R), U.S. President Donald Trump (L) leaves the Capitol after he attended a House Republican Conference meeting November 16, 2017 in Washington, DC.
"Women are very special..."
Six women have accused Mr Moore of pursuing romantic relationships with them when they were teenagers and he was an assistant district attorney in his 30s.
Trump said he did not want Jones to win. The president added that "we don't need a liberal person in there, a Democrat".
He continued, "But Donald Trump didn't seem to see a problem of being on the side of neo-Nazis and now he apparently doesn't see a problem with being on the side of the accused child predator".
SC women's basketball champions decline White House invite

Judge declares mistrial in New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez bribery trial
The judge in the New Jersey Democrats' federal bribery trial declared a mistrial Thursday. The jury showed signs this week that they would be unable to reach a verdict.
Sessions defends himself to Congress, says he never lied
Conyers, alluding to the fact that Sessions did not directly answer the question, responded by saying, "I interpret that as no". But he does not recall the details of what Mr Papadopoulos said, Mr Sessions testified before the House Judiciary Committee.
Trump did not answer questions about whether he believes Moore's denials. And if you don't buy any of the sexual-misconduct allegations against Moore, he's a proud scofflaw who has twice lost his gavel as Alabama Supreme Court chief justice for defying federal court orders.
"I think it's a very special time because a lot of things are coming out and I think that's good for our society and I think it's very, very good for women", Trump said.
More than a dozen women came forward at the end of the 2016 presidential election to say that Mr Trump had sexually assaulted or harassed them over the years. But he has waded into other sexual assault allegations that have come to light recently against Democratic politicians, tweeting criticism of Sen.
"He denies it", Trump responded. Jeff Flake, who has been critical of Trump and is retiring in 2018, said Monday.
Ben DuPré, who identified himself as a longtime Moore ally, said the former judge is "above reproach".
Alone with Corfman, Moore chatted with her and asked for her phone number, she says.
Moore's camp has begun firing back at the media and one of the accusers. During the hearing, Speier said that she knows of two current members of Congress who have engaged in sexual harassment.
