President Trump won’t campaign for Roy Moore, seen here at the Values Voter Summit of the Family Research Council in Washington on Oct. 13.

A White House official says President Trump will not campaign for Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore before the Dec. 12 special election.

The unidentified official told the AP that Trump will not travel to Alabama on the accused creep’s behalf, despite his public statements casting doubt on allegations from nine women accusing the bible-thumping pol of sexual misconduct and even assault.

The president held the door open to campaigning for Moore last week, when he implicitly endorsed Moore’s candidacy and attacked his opponent, Doug Jones, for being a “liberal” and a “Democrat.”

Trump has declined to follow the path of other mainstream GOP leaders, who have called on Moore to step aside.

Republican lawmakers are considering expelling Moore should he win the seat.
