 Trump campaign pushes back at story he backs 16-week abortion ban in private
by Brett Samuels - 02/16/24 1:43 PM ET

The Trump campaign is pushing back at a news story about former President Trump’s stance on abortion, but it did not contradict its main contention that Trump has privately indicated he supports the idea of a ban on abortion after 16 weeks of pregnancy.

The New York Times reported Trump has told advisers and allies that he favors a 16-week ban on abortion that includes exceptions for cases of rape, incest and the life of the mother. Democrats immediately seized on the report as evidence Trump would push for a national abortion ban if he wins reelection.

In a subsequent statement, the Trump campaign did not directly address the former president’s reported comments, instead offering a vague statement saying Trump would “sit down with both sides and negotiate a deal that everyone will be happy with.

“President Trump appointed strong Constitutionalist federal judges and Supreme Court justices who overturned Roe v. Wade and sent the decision back to the states, which others have tried to do for over 50 years,” campaign spokesperson Karoline Leavitt said in a statement, which referred to the article as “fake news.”

Trump needs to keep his mouth shut on this or emphasize that the issue has been returned to the states.

That way the border and ILLEGAL immigration becomes the #1 issue.
Romans 12:16-21

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all…do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Agree with bele.

Mr. Trump should simply say that he respects the decision of the U.S. Supreme Court, and that abortion is now "a state issue". And let it go at that.
