White House spokesman Raj Shah said Monday that the two had "a
positive call" during which they discussed the state of the race and the
Moore's campaign says Trump called Moore a "fighter" and expressed
his eagerness at having Moore fighting for his agenda in Washington.
Trump's support comes despite allegations that the 70-year-old Moore
sexually assaulted teenage girls decades ago, including one who said he
molested her when she was 14 and he was in his 30s. Many national
Republicans have called on Moore to step aside in the wake of the sexual
assault and harassment allegations.
