Trump defends Roy Moore: 'He totally denies it'
Asked if having an alleged molester in the Senate was preferable to seating a Democrat, Trump pointed to Moore's denials. Trump's position is a break from other national Republicans, who have called on Moore to step aside.

The 25-year-old, who defeated his countryman Kidambi Srikanth to win 2017 Senior National Badminton Championship last week, will face Japan's Kazumasa Sakai, who had defeated the Indian in the semifinals of Indonesia Open Super Series Premier.

Right from the start, Sindhu looked lethal and played aggressively to outplay her opponent in straight games. Sixth seed Ratchanok beat Canadian Michelle Li 21-14, 21-16 in 39 minutes in the other quarterfinal. This was the third time that Sindhu was facing Ohori and thanks to this victory, the Hyderabad-based shuttler was successful in maintaining her unbeaten record against the Japanese youngster.
