At a rally for Luther Strange on Friday, President Trump said he may have made a mistake in lending the "Big Luther" his endorsement. He seemed to decide for sure after Strange lost to Roy Moore in Tuesday's GOP Senate runoff.

As Pro Publica spotted, a string of tweets encouraging Alabamans to vote for Strange — and boasting of the impact he was having on the race — disappeared from the president's twitter page.
