President Trump said Tuesday he believes it's good for society and for women that people are sharing stories of sexual harassment, though he downplayed allegations of sexual misconduct against Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore.

Asked about the allegations of sexual misconduct, which include molesting a 14-year-old girl, Trump said, "Well he denies it. Look, he denies it".

Trump addressed the swirling controversy surrounding Moore for the first time since top Republican leaders called on Moore to step aside more than a week ago.

Six women have accused the Republican Moore of pursuing romantic relationships with them when they were teenagers and he was an assistant district attorney in his 30s. Moore has denied the allegations.

Reuters has been unable to independently confirm any of the accusations.

Trump also hit at Moore's rival Doug Jones - a 63-year- old US Attorney who is now ahead 47 per cent to 42 per cent in the polls. "I do have to say, 40 years is a long time".

"He totally denies it". And I'm very happy a lot of these things are coming out.

Trump was accused of sexual assault by multiple women during the 2016 campaign, and has continued to deny those allegations.

Trump also said he will announce next week whether he will campaign for Moore, who has been abandoned by the National Republican Senatorial Committee and the Republican National Committee in the wake of the accusations.

"That's why you saw Kellyanne come out yesterday and say we've got to have somebody like Judge Moore", Young said, adding: "You know, Kellyanne does talk for the White House". White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders has said the administration's position is that all of Trump's accusers are lying.
