Roy Moore, Doug Jones Neck-And-Neck In Alabama Senate Race

Trump Won't Say Whether He Disagrees With Roy Moore's View That Gay Sex Should Be Illegal

Fox News has a new poll out showing the special election in Alabama between Republican Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones is a tied race, with each candidate at 42 percent among registered voters.

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick began kneeling during the anthem past year to protest police brutality and what he described as a system that oppressed black Americans.

Plus, 21 percent of those in the Jones camp say they're voting against Moore as opposed to for Jones.

Moore was referring, Time reported, to a section of the USA code that says those listening to the national anthem when the flag is displayed "should" stand at attention with their hands on their hearts. "It was an act of Congress that every man stands and put their hand over their heart".

"I back the president in upholding respect for the patriotism for our country, on two grounds", he said.

"I'm going to be meeting with Roy sometime next week and we're going to talk to him about a lot of different things, but I'll be meeting with him", Trump said. One, it's respect for the law.

In an interview with TIME published Wednesday, Moore was asked about "NFL controversy, with the players taking a knee".

Last week, Moore said in a statement that those who kneel during the anthem are disrespectful.

Moore emphasized that it's, "the rule of law". "I'm surprised that no one brought this up". Donald Trump won Alabama by 28 points in 2016, yet the Steve Bannon-backed Moore defeated the president's favored candidate, incumbent Luther Strange, in the GOP primary.

But it says "should", and if this is a demonstration of Roy Moore's ability to understand the law, well, he shouldn't have anything to do with making it or interpreting it. That marked the second time Moore left the Alabama Supreme Court in disgrace - in 2003, he was removed from the court after he refused a federal court's order to remove a monument of the Ten Commandments from the Alabama Judicial Building.
