Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters Thursday that President Trump believes the allegations against Roy Moore "are very troubling, and takes them very seriously," but the people of Alabama should decide who they want to represent them in the Senate.

She reiterated: Trump "firmly believes" that if the allegations are true, "then he should step aside."
