Several times throughout his presidential campaign, Trump expressed his desire to place anti-abortion judges on the Supreme Court in hopes of overturning Roe v. Wade. And now that he’s won the election he’s standing by that mission.
With all of the outrageous things Trump has said for the past year and a half it’s difficult to tell right now how much of it was real and how much of it was just a con pandering for votes. He’s already backed down on fully repealing Obamacare. And he’s now changing his hard-line stance on deporting all undocumented immigrants.
But one of the things he seems to be standing firm on is taking away a woman’s right to choose.
Several times throughout his presidential campaign, Trump expressed his desire to place anti-abortion judges on the Supreme Court in hopes of overturning Roe v. Wade. And now that he’s won the election, he’s standing by that mission.
On Sunday night Trump appeared on CBS’s 60 Minutes. And he told Lesley Stahl, “Abortion, if it were ever overturned, it would go back to the states.”
Stahl replied, “Yeah, but then some women won’t be able to get an abortion.”
“Yeah, well, they’ll perhaps have to go—they’ll have to go to another state,” Trump said.
Stahl also asked Trump about same-sex marriage. Many of his fellow neo-Cons have been saying they want the Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage overturned. But in Sunday’s interview Trump said that gay marriage will stand because “it’s law.”
On gay marriage Trump said, “It was settled in the Supreme Court. I mean it’s done.”
(So was legal abortion. But why let those pesky facts get in the way when you’re busy trying to destroy America.)
