Chinese President Xi Jinping asked President Trump about GOP Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, amid allegations against Moore of sexual misconduct.
As Xi and Trump, who was in China last week as part of a 13-day trip to Asia, wrapped up remarks to the press in Beijing, they headed backstage and Xi called on his interpreter to ask Trump about Moore, sources told the Associated Press.
“Who is Roy Moore?” Xi asked.
Four women told the Washington Post on the record in a report published last week about their alleged interactions with Moore in a piece published Thursday.
Trump told reporters last week that if the allegations against Moore are true, he should step down.
