Trump: "I was right" that Roy Moore couldn't win

President Trump tweeted this morning that he'd originally supported Luther Strange in the Alabama Senate special election because he believed Roy Moore to be unelectable — even though he had fully thrown his support behind Moore over the last few weeks:
