President Trump wants Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore to “step aside” if allegations of sexual misconduct against him are proven true, the White House said Friday. 
 
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters traveling with Trump in Asia he does not believe “a mere allegation” from many years ago should “destroy a person’s life.”
 
“However, the president also believes that if these allegations are true, Judge Moore will do the right thing and step aside,” she said. 

The comment came in response to a bombshell report published by The Washington Post, in which an Alabama woman said Moore initiated a sexual encounter with her when she was 14 years old and he was 32.
