Conway: Trump Has Made It 'Perfectly Clear' He Wants Moore

President Donald Trump has made it perfectly clear that he wants Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore's vote in the Senate, while also believing it's up to the state's voters to decide, presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway said Monday.

"I don't think the president could be more clear how he feels about this race," Conway told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program. "He also said it's up to the Alabama voters to decide. We respect the rights of voters in every state to decide who represents them in the United States Senate."

Trump on Friday campaigned for Moore during a rally in Pensacola, Florida, and over the weekend, a robocall recording of the president went out, in which he claimed progress would be "stopped cold" if Moore's Democratic opponent, Doug 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."

One of the under-covered stories of the race will be about how much money has been spent, as there has been a "tremendous spending advantage" for the Democratic candidate Doug Jones, said Conway, but Trump and Vice President Mike Pence are "five for five" in elections won after they got involved.

"I'm just surprised that the Democrats haven't had more of a footprint in Alabama," said Conway. "I think if they had polling showing Doug Jones ahead they would be crowing about it and feeding the media or most of the media about it. They just haven't."

Democrats have spent a great deal of money, but no "superstars" in Alabama.

"Here is what voters focus on and we all know," said Conway. "You don't need to be a pollster 28 years to note the following. 

"Media polling show its taxes, economy, heck, immigration, national security, prosperity, accountability. Transparency. Every single issue that this president and vice president are working on every single day."

Conway also weighed in on comments President Barack Obama made last week, when he claimed credit for the growing economy, calling his statements "regrettable and false, obviously."

"If the Obama economy is what Americans wanted, then Hillary Clinton would have won his third term," she said. "They rejected 'Obamaomics.'"

The statistics show there was 2 percent or less growth on Obama's watch, she continued.

"This country for decades until 2007 got about three percent or better growth GDP on average," said Conway. "And when he got here, we settled for less. And people are tired of settling for less. Under President Trump, we have had two consecutive quarters of over three percent GDP, and we're going to be close to four percent."

There is also anticipation of a massive tax cut for the middle class, said Conway, which is spurring economic anticipation.

"Obama is not the president," she said. "Why can't he talk about something else? I can't believe the Democratic Party has wasted a year talking about the 2016 election and occasionally the 2020 election. What in God's name? What do they have to show here?"
