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.
