President Donald Trump has no plans to travel to Alabama to campaign for embattled Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, the White House said Monday.
"The president is not planning any trip to Alabama at this time, and, frankly, his schedule doesn't permit him doing anything between now and election day," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters during Monday's daily briefing.
Moore is facing allegations by at least five women that he pursued sexual relationships with them when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s. Two women have accused Moore of sexually assaulting them when they were minors.
Trump has expressed support for Moore's candidacy, but that backing has been muted since news of the allegations broke earlier this month. Since then, Trump has repeatedly attacked Moore's opponent, Democrat Doug Jones, but stopped short of encouraging people to vote for Moore.
