But he was unusually quiet when it came to the scandal enveloping Alabama Republican Roy Moore's Senate campaign, only addressing it directly a week after returning to the U.S. - on Tuesday afternoon - when he told reporters outside the White House he was standing by the GOP nominee.

The long and short of it is this: Everything Trump said Tuesday afternoon about Moore and the Alabama Senate race runs directly opposite of what the leaders within the national GOP have said in recent weeks.

Trump signaled his support for Moore by saying he has looked at Democrat Doug Jones' record and, "it's awful on crime, it's bad on the border, it's awful on the military".

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said just the other day that Trump was "troubled" by the allegations of sexual misconduct against minors by Moore. He totally denies it.

Trump, McConnell and the NRSC backed Moore's primary opponent, appointed Sen.

"He says it didn't happen", Trump added, "and you have to listen to him also". Shelby, a Republican, said he will "absolutely not" vote for Moore.

When asked if Trump would be campaigning, Conway said there was "no plan to do that" but didn't explicitly shut down the possibility.

Sessions said he had no reason to doubt Moore's accusers. "He will be a vote against tax cuts".

By saying he supports Moore's version of events, Trump is, de facto, saying that the women aren't telling the truth. He's weak on crime, weak on borders.

In a Tuesday news conference, campaign strategist Dean Young and two other longtime associates of the Alabama GOP Senate nominee insisted allegations against Moore are false.
