Republican Roy Moore is considering running for the Senate yet again. If Moore goes through with this plan, it will come after his previous unsuccessful Senate run.

Now, while the judge may be ready to give a political race another go, not all Republicans are supportive of this. As a matter of fact, President Trump and his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr. got into a Twitter back-and-forth with Moore over the latter’s desire to run for office again.

Response from Roy Moore

Moore is not taking criticism from the Trump family without issuing his own response. During a phone interview with Politico, Moore stated that the president does not control the manner in which Alabama citizens vote in elections.

In Moore’s own words:

“The president doesn’t control who votes for the United States Senate in Alabama. People in Alabama are smarter than that. They elect the senator from Alabama, not from Washington, D.C.”

Moore also stated that his GOP critics are “upset” because they “know” he will win the second time around.

However, earlier today, Moore followed up his remarks; the politician maintains that he has the “greatest respect and appreciation” for President Trump and his various policies.
