He bragged about the stock market and spoke admiringly of "beautiful clean coal", whatever that is.
President Donald Trump injected himself into a bitter U.S. Senate primary fight in Alabama on Friday, putting to the test his ability to enlist his anti-establishment voters to come to the aid of an endangered Republican incumbent.
Making it clear that he does not see Luther as the political insider Moore's campaign has made him out to be, Trump said, "Luther wants to end business as usual, stop the insider dealing, and Luther Strange is determined to DRAIN THAT SWAMP".
Several other top Trump supporters have also gone in the opposite direction of the president on the Alabama special election, including Sarah Palin and Republican former Sen.
"I am proud to have President Trump's endorsement in this race and I am looking forward to his trip to Alabama", said Luther Strange in response to the announcement.
Conservative Review Senior Editor Daniel Horowitz pointed out the significance of next week's upcoming runoff, asserting that Republican legislators govern like Democrats after they win their races ... only to then get re-elected once they receive the support of the establishment.
The White House has not said if Trump will make any appearances when he returns to New Jersey this weekend. Of course, odd has to beat Moore first.
Moore won the first round of voting, and now leads in a number of polls.
"Alabama is sooo lucky to have a candidate like "Big" Luther Strange".
Though Strange is supported by both Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell, Moore's dedication to religion and conservative ideals is winning people over in the state. "Luther Strange has gained mightily since my endorsement, but will be very close".
Media observers have noted that Strange's campaign has largely gravitated around highlighting his allegiance to the president, ever since he was named to fill the vacancy Sessions left behind. He marvelled at the crowd size, which he said the networks would never show.
"Maybe something gets worked out, and maybe it doesn't", the president said. "He loves Alabama, and so do I!" He is expected to head back to Washington, D.C., on Sunday night.
Most critically, the election will be a barometer of Trump's continuing popularity and influence in a state where almost two-thirds of voters supported him in 2016, one of the highest concentrations of support in the country.
"No matter what he is, we are going to handle it", Trump said.
"If Luther didn't take an appointment, if he just ran, it wouldn't be a contest", Trump said.
Trump seems to be taking a shot at former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who was the driving force behind the protests a year ago. Trump did not fail on that count, either.
Former Governor Robert Bentley, who resigned after a sex scandal, appointed unusual to take Sessions' seat.
