The White House responds to Roy Moore underage sex abuse story by doing the right thing

President Donald Trump has responded to the allegations of sexual misconduct against minors levied against Alabama Republican senate nominee Roy Moore.

In a statement released via White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the president said that Moore should “do the right thing” if the charges are true.

“The President believes if allegations are true he will do the right thing and step aside,” she said, according to NBC News’ Monica Alba on Twitter.

But he qualified the statement by adding that “Like most Americans, the president believes we cannot allow a mere allegation, in this case one from many years ago, to destroy a person’s life.”

On Thursday the Washington Post broke the bombshell that accused Moore of serious inappropriate behavior with a 14-year-old girl around 40 years ago. The story also contained allegations from other women who claimed they had dated Moore when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s.

It may not entirely be up to Roy Moore if he gets to run as a Republican in Alabama’s senate race.

None of the accusations included charges of sexual intercourse with underage girls.

Meanwhile, Moore has taken a lesson out of Trump’s playbook and is fighting back. The GOP nominee used Twitter to vow he’ll “never give up”, and issued an official statement calling the accusations a “baseless political attack.”
