Trump will stay focused on Asia trip, Sanders says.

President Donald Trump said that Roy Moore, Alabama’s Republican Senate nominee, should quit the race if allegations that he improperly touched underage girls are true, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said.

“Like most Americans the president believes we cannot allow a mere allegation, in this case one from many years ago, to destroy a person’s life,” Ms. Sanders said. “However, the president also believes that if these allegations are true, Judge Moore will do the right thing and step aside.”
