A Test for Trump's Political Muscle in Alabama Senate Runoff

Next Tuesday, voters will choose Moore or unusual to take on former U.S. Attorney and Democratic nominee Doug Jones in the general election in December. But recently his advisors were extremely segregated if the President should imperil jetting to Alabama to support the Republican who was pursuing in his initial race after a competitor who had become a dear one to Trump's base.

Moore is a darling of Alabama's evangelical voters after twice being removed from office over stands against gay marriage and for the public display of the Ten Commandments. Money has flooded the campaigns in Tuesday's Republican primary runoff, as former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore maintains an apparent lead over interim Sen.

Odd and Moore are battling to fill the seat vacated by Jeff Sessions, who resigned to become Trump's attorney general earlier this year. Luther Strange, are coming to Alabama via the pro-Trump issue advocacy group Great American Alliance.

Young, earlier this week, said most of the people he knows - and who are supporters of Moore - are surprised over the president's endorsement of unusual, who is receiving financial support from the McConnell-led Senate Leadership Fund.

Breitbart News, the far-right news outlet headed by recently ousted White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, has directed its editorial staff to go all out in their effort to bolster Moore over unusual.

In 2005, Moore blasted the U.S. Supreme Court's 2003 decision to make laws against sodomy unconstitutional nationwide.

Moore led odd in the first round of GOP voting, but not by enough to avoid the runoff, which could stand as an early test of how much sway Trump has over his political base.

Trump vows to 'destroy' North Korea during United Nations speech
Tensions between the USA and North Korea have escalated since Trump came into office. "We can not stand by and watch", he said. Donald Trump has vowed to "totally destroy" North Korea if they do not desist in their nuclear ambitions.

Odd said Trump's support has come due to their close personal friendship and because the president knows he'll remain loyal to him and his agenda.

"Alabama is sooo lucky to have a candidate like "Big" Luther Strange", Trump tweeted.

Trump allies stressed that the president was also motivated by Strange's loyalty and commitment to his agenda.

"Just because it's done behind closed doors, it can still be prohibited by state law", he argued.
