Trump campaigned for unusual on Friday, but said that if Moore won he would campaign for Moore to keep the seat in Republican hands. Jeff Sessions (R), who is now attorney general. "It was great being with Luther Strange last night in Alabama". As many recall, that is the reason he was in Alabama Friday evening where he gave the speech about the National Football League sons of bitches. Luther Strange started way back & ran a good race.

DOUG JONES: Please stand with me.
For instance, even though he's an immigration hardliner, he doesn't know who Dreamers are or Trump's stance on helping them.
However, the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics, a watchdog organization, is now calling Trump out for deleting the tweets, claiming that he is in violation of the Presidential Records Act.
