Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon will be one of the headliners of a Monday night rally for Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, a spokeswoman for Moore's campaign has confirmed to CNN. Luther Strange. Though Trump provided a detailed case at Friday's rally for voting for Strange, he said he would campaign for whichever Republican candidate prevailed in the primary on Tuesday.

Bannon has endorsed Moore in the race while his former boss, President Donald Trump, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have endorsed odd.

The rally will be three days after President Donald Trump visited the state to campaign for Moore's opponent, Sen.

But Carson confidant Armstrong Williams insisted the praise was "not an endorsement" and said Carson was "just showing support for his friend". He campaigned on Repeal & Replace.

But Strange called him up and said he was with him "right from the start", something the president said left him in disbelief.

While Trump emphasized his support for odd, his hour-plus speech also touched on his White House agenda, his recent appearance at the U.N. General Assembly and many campaign themes.

A new tirade of the president's - in a very football-minded state - was against the NFL and recent protests by players, started previous year by then-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick for refusing to stand during the national anthem.

Still, those at the rally were united in support of Trump, but divided over who should be the state's next senator.

Buoyed by chants of "build the wall", he talked about the need to have a see-through wall at the southern border so that drug traffickers couldn't throw bushels of drugs over and hit people on the other side on the head. He said allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 USA election were a "hoax". And for some Alabama Republicans, the support of a president they adore wasn't enough to dissuade them from supporting Moore. "That's why he's here to support me, because he knows that I've got his back". She attended rallies in support of Moore in 2003 when he was removed as Alabama chief justice. So I'm sticking with the president. This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see the president, but I am a Moore supporter.

"Wouldn't you love to see one of the National Football League owners when somebody disrespects the flag, to say "Get that son of a bitch off the field"?"

President Donald Trump explained and reaffirmed his support for Sen.
