"It's a disgusting new low that the President, the RNC, and the rest of the Republican Party are trying to help send a pedophile to the US Senate, and the American people won't soon forget it".

Trump didn't miss his opportunity to mention the yearbook note on Friday night, and seemed to relish the chance to try to discredit both Nelson and Allred, who also represents three of the 16 women who have accused Trump of sexual misconduct.

"I said I did not know any of them women who have charged me with sexual allegation of molestation, and I did not know any of the women", he said.

But the location - so close to the Alabama state line and feeding its television markets - stoked speculation that it was a backdoor way for the president to boost Mr Moore's campaign without actually setting foot in the state. "Did you see that?"

Pyongyang does not want escalation of tensions on Korean peninsula, senator says
Kosachev added that there is no alternative to the Russian-Chinese settlement plan for the North Korean situation. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert has said Feltman is not visiting Pyongyang on behalf of Washington.

Earlier in the day, Ms Nelson acknowledged that she added a notation under a high school yearbook inscription she says Mr Moore wrote in 1977. Trump asked at the rally.

During his campaign, Trump had promised that, when he was elected, people would be saying "Merry Christmas again", a reference to what he characterized as the country's obsession with political correctness. There was a little mistake made. We can't afford it, folks.

Sen. Richard Shelby explained on Sunday why he didn't vote for Roy Moore.

"I couldn't vote for Roy Moore, I didn't vote for Roy Moore, but I wrote in a distinguished Republican name, and I think a lot of people could do that", Shelby said.

Trump endorsed Moore's candidacy despite the claims against him, and has said a Democratic victory would serve a blow to his agenda. "We can't afford to have a liberal Democrat who is completely controlled by Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer", he added, referring to the top Democrats in the House of Representatives and Senate, respectively.

A RealClearPolitics average of polls shows Moore with a almost 4-point lead over Jones heading into the final days of the campaign.

Steve Bannon, former chief White House strategist and ardent Moore supporter, presents the election as a choice between Trump and his 2016 presidential election rival Hillary Clinton.
