After weeks of equivocating on his support for Republican Alabama Senate nominee Roy Moore in the wake of sexual abuse allegations, President Donald Trump finally re-endorsed the controversial former state judge, telling Moore in a phone call to “go get ’em!”

According to The Hill, Trump tweeted his support for the candidate on Monday morning and then called Moore from Air Force One to offer his support again.

Trump and his administration had previously withheld explicit support for Moore, saying only that the president believed the people of Alabama should decide Moore’s fate after the decades-old allegations came to light.

“Look, the president believes these allegations are very troubling and should be taken seriously, and he thinks the people of Alabama should make the decision on who their senator should be,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said on Nov. 16.

However, in both public comments and on social media, the president made it clear that while he wouldn’t openly endorse Moore, he felt that Moore’s opponent, Democrat Doug Jones, would be a disaster for both Alabama and Congress.

“The last thing we need in Alabama and the U.S. Senate is a Schumer/Pelosi puppet who is WEAK on Crime, WEAK on the Border, Bad for our Military and our great Vets, Bad for our 2nd Amendment, AND WANTS TO RAISES TAXES TO THE SKY. Jones would be a disaster!” Trump tweeted on Nov. 26.

“I endorsed Luther Strange in the Alabama Primary. He shot way up in the polls but it wasn’t enough. Can’t let Schumer/Pelosi win this race. Liberal Jones would be BAD!”

Now, he’s all in for Moore — and, given Trump’s base in Alabama as well as Moore’s rebounding poll numbers, that could be the liberals’ worst nightmare.

Moore, a controversial judge who was twice removed from the Alabama Supreme Court over religious liberty issues, had once been considered a shoo-in to win the Dec. 12 special election and replace now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions in the upper chamber once Moore won the party nomination over former Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange.

However, shortly after Moore secured the nomination, stories of inappropriate relations with and sexual abuse upon minors began to circulate and then appeared in the press. Moore vigorously denied the allegations, but his poll numbers took an immediate hit and a multitude of Republicans urged him to step aside as it appeared a safe GOP seat could pass into Democrat hands.

While Moore’s numbers have since recovered, the RealClearPolitics polling average still shows a tight race, with Moore leading Jones by just 2.6 points. This, perhaps, was the impetus for the president to get involved in a manner in which he had previously seemed determined to avoid. While Trump had tweeted his support for Moore immediately after his victory over Strange, he hadn’t explicitly done so once the controversy started.

On Monday morning, Trump tweeted the first concrete endorsement of Moore since the sex allegations broke.

Moore’s campaign also said that in addition to the “Go get ’em, Roy” quote, the president called Moore a “fighter” during their conversation and said he’s eager to have Moore in Washington to support his agenda.

Moore’s wife, Kayla, also wrote about the call on Facebook, saying that “Judge Moore just got off the phone with President Trump-we have his full support! Thank you Mr. President! Let’s MAGA!
