Trump addressed the swirling controversy surrounding Moore for the first time since top Republican leaders called on Moore to step aside more than a week ago.

Trump was accused of sexual assault by multiple women during the 2016 campaign, and has continued to deny those allegations. "When you're a star, they let you do it", Trump said on the "Access Hollywood" tape.

Faye Gary, a police officer for 37 years in Gadsden, Alabama, where Roy Moore worked in the '70s and '80s, said Tuesday that local law enforcement was instructed to prevent the future Senate candidate from preying on high school cheerleaders at football games.

Accompanied by Vice President Mike Pence (R), U.S. President Donald Trump (L) leaves the Capitol after he attended a House Republican Conference meeting November 16, 2017 in Washington, DC.

The White House previously said Mr Trump thought the Moore allegations were "extremely troubling".

Sessions said he had no reason to doubt Moore's accusers.

The President also expressed vehement opposition to Doug Jones, the Democrat in the race and Moore's only major opponent.

A reporter asked Trump if an "accused child molester" was better than a Democrat.

President Donald Trump is not known for being shy when it comes to hot-button political questions.

Republican U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other prominent lawmakers have pressed Moore to quit the race.

"He denies it", Trump told reporters at the White House. Jeff Flake, who has been critical of Trump and is retiring in 2018, said Monday.

The Washington Post, earlier this month, reported detailed accusations against Moore of sexual misconduct and assault against minors, one of whom alleges the conduct occurred when she was just 14.

Alone with Corfman, Moore chatted with her and asked for her phone number, she says.

Young said he advised Moore not to lend credence to the questions either and dismissed the allegations - which range from inappropriate behavior to pursuing teenage girls while he was past the age of 30 to sexual assault - as "Jerry Springer stuff". During the hearing, Speier said that she knows of two current members of Congress who have engaged in sexual harassment.
