Ivanka Trump laid the hammer down on Roy Moore, Republican candidate for Senate in Alabama, saying “there’s a special place in hell” for people who’ve done what he’s been accused of doing.
Guess what. She’s right. The statement on it’s surface rings true. Does it apply to Moore?
Trump spoke to the Associated Press at a public appearance in South Jersey, pushing her ‘major project,’ increasing the child tax credit. The scandal however, couldn’t be avoided, as she was asked for comment.
Moore has been accused by several women of sexual misconduct when they were teenagers, including some instances where the alleged victims were under the age of consent.
To say she didn’t hold back would be an understatement.

It’s clear she’s referring to Moore, saying she has no reason to doubt the accusers stories.
“There’s a special place in hell for people who prey on children,” Trump said. “I’ve yet to see a valid explanation and I have no reason to doubt the victims’ accounts.”
It is the strongest condemnation thus far of Moore by somebody within the White House.
Finally – Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, became the first White House official to condemn Moore on Wednesday, telling the Associated Press: “There’s a special place in hell for people who prey on children”.

Earlier this week, Fox News host Sean Hannity demanded Moore provide satisfactory answers to the accusations within 24 hours, or he would call for him to get out of the race.
The Republican responded by penning an open letter to Hannity in which he adamantly denied the allegations of two accusers. After three more women stepped forward yesterday, the total number of accusers has reached eight.

Hannity appeared to back off his ultimatum in response to the letter, as his specific inconsistencies were addressed.
Still, he agreed with Trump’s remarks on there being a “special place in hell for people who prey on children.”
