President Donald Trump continued his recent tradition of firing off multiple tweets early in the morning on Monday, this time making it clear that he's fully backing Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore who faces multiple sexual misconduct and assault allegations.

“Democrats refusal to give even one vote for massive Tax Cuts is why we need Republican Roy Moore to win in Alabama,” Trump wrote.

The president had previously hinted at backing Moore, who has been accused of sexual misconduct and assault by multiple women, including sexually touching a 14-year-old girl when he was in his 30s. “We don't need a liberal person in there, a Democrat,” Trump told reporters last week while also slamming Moore's Democratic opponent, Doug Jones, as “terrible on crime, he's terrible at the border, he's terrible on the military.”

Trump added on Monday that “putting Pelosi/Schumer Liberal Puppet Jones into office in Alabama would hurt our great Republican Agenda of low on taxes, tough on crime, strong on military and borders...& so much more.”

“Look at your 401-k’s since Election,” Trump wrote. “Highest Stock Market EVER! Jobs are roaring back!”

Trump also promoted a segment on Fox News which featured Alan Dershowitz discussing the Russia investigation:

Over the weekend, Trump made headlines via his Twitter account when he revealed that he knew that former national security adviser Michael Flynn had lied to the FBI before he fired him earlier in the year. However, after the tweet sparked cries of “obstruction of justice,” the president personal lawyer took the blame for the tweet, calling it “my mistake.”

“I'm out of the tweeting business,” John Dowd said.
