Donald Trump is 'furious' with Ivanka for Roy Moore comment

There is no way for President Trump to ever disavow Moore unless his accusations are authenticated

The Republican National Committee cut fundraising ties with Moore earlier this month, and Republicans in Congress, including Sen. Alabama historically votes Republican but the allegations against Moore have taken a toll.

Trump has privately acknowledged that his support for Moore is cold political calculus, according to a New York Times story Saturday.

"The allegations were obviously very concerning, concerning to the degree that we [the RNC] pulled our resources", McDaniel said.

But Trump - himself the object of allegations of sexual misconduct by several women during his presidential campaign - on Sunday shrugged off such appeals.

Mr Moore has said he has "not been guilty of sexual misconduct with anyone".

One Republican senator and sometime Trump critic, Lindsey Graham of SC, said Sunday that having Moore on the ballot was a lose-lose proposition for the party. But they were unsuccessful.

Last week, following a lengthy period of relative silence on the matter, President Donald Trump broke his silence on Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore and essentially endorsed the embattled ex-Alabama judge.

"Liberal Jones would be BAD!" he tweeted less than an hour later.

He tweeted that "the last thing" Republicans need in the closely divided Senate is a Democratic "puppet who is WEAK on Crime, WEAK on the Border". "If you lose, you give the senate seat to a Democrat".

"Roy Moore was unfit for office before nine Alabama women served as witnesses to all Alabamians of his disturbing conduct", Sebastian Kitchen, Jones' spokesman, wrote in an email.

Is it simpler to believe that, while the victims of Louis C.K., Al Franken and Charlie Rose's unwanted advances are telling the truth, Moore's accusers are all liars, operatives in a bipartisan plot by two parties who can't even work together on health care or tax reform? "He is a distraction", Mr Thune told TV host Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday. "I think that'd be better for the country and, you know, the election's in a few weeks here, or in a couple weeks maybe, and, you know, there is a possibility for folks to do write-in candidates, so we'll see but, no, I think it'd be best if he stepped aside", he said.

The South Dakota legislator suggested that while "ultimately the decision is up to the people of Alabama", Mr Trump can use his power to get Mr Moore to pull out of the race.
