Why Trump stands by Roy Moore, even as it fractures his party

CNN producer Vaughn Sterling tweeted his incredulity about the article's claim that Mr Trump denied his involvement in the tape.

Like Moore, Trump has been accused of sexual assault by several women, and like Moore, he has refused to budge an inch on the question of his innocence. "Liberal Jones would be BAD!"

Flynn might be cooperating with prosecutors or negotiating a deal for himself after his lawyers notified the president's legal team that they could no longer discuss the special counsel's investigation, according to The New York Times.

Trump's comments come in the wake of his defense of alleged pedofile Roy Moore, who the President officially endorsed last week.

The New York Times reports that's part of the reasoning behind his staunch support of Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, who has been accused of pursuing and molesting underage girls four decades ago, despite Moore's near-universal disavowal by Senate Republicans.

He also Tweeted the following statement about TIME magazine, which was nearly immediately described as "incorrect" by the periodical. "It began in January and it hasn't been reported before".

Trump and "Access Hollywood's" Billy Bush in 2015.

The tape, which contained audio of a conversation between Mr Trump and TV host Billy Bush, was released just weeks before the November 2016 presidential election.

"You know I'm automatically attracted to beautiful - I just start kissing them", Trump told Bush. "It's like a magnet". I don't even wait. And when you're a star, they let you do it. Grab 'em by the p***y. Add Donald Trump as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Donald Trump news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

"I said it, I was wrong, and I apologize", he said at the time.

When the tape was made public by the Washington Post in October 2016, Trump acknowledged he was speaking in the video and apologized for his comments, in which he said: "You know, I'm automatically attracted to beautiful - I just start kissing them.

But I couldn't get there", Trump said on the tape. "I don't think this is an offhand comment. Nobody has more respect for women than I do". You bragged that you have sexually assaulted women. He denied the allegations.

Then, two days later on October 9, he faced live questioning about the tapes during the second presidential debate. Meanwhile, his Democratic opponent Doug Jones has risen in the polls ahead of the December 12 special election.

"There is nothing on the schedule at this time", Walters said.
