“President Donald Trump continues to wonder why Republican Roy Moore – once considered a sure thing to win the U.S. Senate seat from Alabama – lost to Democrat Doug Jones, according to a recent report.
Audio obtained by the New York Times revealed Mick Mulvaney, White House budget director, telling fellow Republicans the president isn`t over Moore`s 2017 Senate loss.
`The president asks me all the time, `Why did Roy Moore lose?` Mulvaney said.”
Donald Trump doesn`t subscribe to any political ideology, before he became president the real estate mogul made campaign contributions to any candidate that could help his business endeavors, regardless of their political affiliation.
Trump ran as a Republican because he correctly discerned that he could ride the GOP anti-immigration wave all the way to the White House.
Trump doesn`t endorse candidates based on their faithfulness to Republican values, he could care less about conservative principles. He endorses candidates who are loyal to him, regardless of their moral character or fealty to traditional Republican dogma.
Trump has the Midas touch, any candidate whom he endorses in the primaries or special elections usually wins.
That`s why to this day Trump can`t believe that a candidate that he endorsed, Roy Moore, lost to a Democrat in the red state of Alabama. In fact, Moore was the first Republican to lose a Senate election in Alabama since Richard Sellers in 1992.
Moore was an alleged pedophile who in his 30`s cruised high schools and shopping malls in search of dates, but Trump feels that his endorsement should have trumped any reservations that Republicans had about voting for a pervert.
Why did Roy Moore lose? For the same reason that Trump will be impeached when Democrats seize control of the House in the midterm elections: Though white evangelicals my worship Trump, regular folks can`t stomach pedophiles, perverts, and sexual predators.
