WH: Trump Wants Roy Moore Elected Because He Wants Senators Who Support His Tax Cuts
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said President Trump wants Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore to be elected because he prefers officials who “support his agenda” in Congress.
“Obviously the president wants people both in the House and the Senate that support his agenda,” Sanders said Monday in the White House press briefing.
“The president feels that it’s up to the people of Alabama to make that determination of who their representative will be,” Sanders said.
Sanders was responding to questions about Kellyanne Conway’s comments this morning, when she suggested Trump would prefer Moore to be elected over Democrat Doug Jones because he would support GOP tax bill.
