President Donald Trump signed on to his Twitter account and stated the following,
The reason I originally endorsed Luther Strange (and his numbers went up mightily), is that I said Roy Moore will not be able to win the General Election. I was right! Roy worked hard but the deck was stacked against him!
Trump heavily supported Strange throughout the Alabama primary. He traveled along county to county in the state to surrogate alongside him, something Trump never technically did for Moore in the state of Alabama.
When Jones won Trump congratulated Democrat Doug Jones on winning “a hard-fought victory.”
“The Write-in votes played a very big factor, but a win is a win,” Trump tweeted less than an hour after most news organizations had made the call Jones would win.
