(AL.com) — President Donald Trump has apparently deleted his tweets urging support for losing GOP Senate nominee Luther Strange.

According to ProPublica's tracking site Politwoops, three tweets backing Strange have been deleted from the president's official account since Roy Moore won the GOP Senate nomination.

The first deleted tweet said: "Big election tomorrow in the Great State of Alabama. Vote for Senator Luther Strange, tough on crime & border - will never let you down!"

The others said "Luther Strange has been shooting up in the Alabama polls since my endorsement. Finish the job - vote today for "Big Luther" and "ALABAMA, get out and vote for Luther Strange - he has proven to me that he will never let you down!"

The president also deleted a tweet congratulating Moore and urging him to "win in November." The election to choose Alabama's next Senator is in December.
