President Donald Trump urged Alabama voters to vote for Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore at a rally in Pensacola, Florida, on Friday.
Moore has been opposed by both the Republican and Democratic Establishments in Washington.
Trump said that the Washington elites have corrupted the system “resisting change.”
“This is a rigged system, this is a sick system from the inside,” Trump said at the rally just 25 miles from the border of Alabama.
The Republican and Democratic Party Establishments have spent over $50 million to defeat Moore.
Trump formally endorsed Moore last week and some of Moore’s supporters showed up to the rally.
“This guy is screaming, we want Roy Moore. He is right,” Trump said addressing a supporter in the crowd. “We can’t afford to have a liberal Democrat who is completely controlled by Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. We can’t do it… We need somebody in that Senate seat who will vote for our Make America Great Again agenda.”
“These are bad people,” Trump said blasting his critics. “These are very, very bad and evil people. They know who they are.”
Trump also recorded a robo-call for Moore.
“Hi, this is President Donald Trump and I need Alabama to go vote for Roy Moore,” Trump’s message reads. “It is so important. We’re already making America great again. I’m going to make America safer and stronger and better than ever before but we need that seat. We need Roy voting for us.”
“I’m stopping illegal immigration and crime, rebuilding our military and protecting the Second Amendment and our pro-life values,” the president said. “But if Alabama elects liberal Democrat Doug Jones, all of our progress will be stopped cold. We already know Democrat Doug Jones is a puppet Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and he will vote with the Washington liberals every single time. Democrat Jones is soft on crime, weak on immigration, supports abortion, he’s bad for our military and bad for our vets. We don’t want him, and he also, by the way, wants higher taxes. Roy Moore is the guy we need to pass our Make America Great Again agenda. Roy is a conservative who will help me steer this country back on track after eight years of the Obama disaster. Get out and vote for Roy Moore. His vote is our Republican Senate, and it’s needed. We need Roy to help us with the Republican Senate. We will win and we will Make America Great Again.”
“[Doug Jones] supports amnesty and has stated that he sees no need for a border wall and has said nothing about sanctuary cities,” Moore said in a statement. “His election would be a threat to the safety and well-being of the people of Alabama and the United States at large.”
Even though the president supports Moore, some Republicans continue to oppose his candidacy, particularly those employed in the media.
Despite this Moore continues to lead in the polls ahead of the special election. The Moore campaign is hopeful that support from Trump will provide him a boost and will lead to greater Republican turnout.
Moore faces Clinton-era U.S. Attorney Doug Jones on Tuesday.
