President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Sunday morning to share his thoughts, once again, on the upcoming Alabama Senate special election. And while he didn't mention controversial Republican candidate Roy Moore by name — and he did not claim to support him — his message did not claim the opposite, either.

Rounding out his Thanksgiving vacation at Mar-a-Lago (and marking his 103rd day spent at a Trump property as president), Trump used the microblogging platform to opine that the “last thing we need in Alabama and the U.S. Senate is a Schumer/Pelosi puppet”:

Of note is the fact that the president doesn't call out Moore by name but does reference his opponent, Doug Jones.

A few minutes later, the president continued, if in a somewhat confusing manner:

Trump points out that the candidate he supported in the primary did not, in fact, win the election, even if he did shoot “way up in the polls.”

Trump dancing around the subject of Moore is nothing new. Previously, Trump tweeted in a similarly vague manner on the subject of Moore, drawing the scrutiny of many. Additionally, as the president was leaving for his Thanksgiving holiday, said that “you have to listen” to Moore if one is also going to listen to his naysayers.

Moore, for his part, has said that he will not exit the Alabama special election race, even as more accusations mount against him and key members of his campaign resign.
