President Donald Trump recorded a robocall for embattled Alabama Republican Roy Moore in his campaign against Democrat Doug Jones for the Senate in the special election set for Tuesday, Dec. 12, CNN reported Sunday.

Trump stressed the need for Alabama voters to support Moore, stating progress would be "stopped cold" if Jones were to win the election. He also said Jones was "soft on crime, weak on immigration, supports abortion. He's bad for our military and bad for our vets. We don't want him, and he also, by the way, wants higher taxes."

"We need Roy voting for us. I am stopping illegal immigration and crime. We're building a stronger military and protecting the Second Amendment and our pro-life values," Trump said. "But if Alabama elects liberal Democrat Doug Jones, all of our progress will be stopped cold. We already know Democrat Doug Jones is a puppet of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, and he will vote with the Washington liberals every single time."

Moore held an early lead in the race for the seat left vacant when Jeff Sessions became Attorney General earlier this year. Moore saw that lead falter last month when several women accused the former state chief justice of sexual misconduct they claimed took place four decades ago when he was in his early 30s and they were teenagers.

Moore has repeatedly denied the accusations. The latest polls show Moore has reclaimed his lead among likely voters, including a Gravis Marketing poll that showed on Sunday his lead had returned to four points ahead of Jones.

Trump has also voiced support for Moore at a rally in Florida on Friday and in several recent tweets.
