Former President Donald Trump’s recent appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press” left many viewers and political critics with unanswered questions regarding his stance on abortion. Here’s the full story.
During Kristen Welker’s interview, Trump failed to provide a direct answer when asked about his support for a federal abortion ban.
The preview for the interview, which aired on NBC Nightly News, featured Welker discussing her conversation with the former president.
“I asked former President Trump if he would support a federal ban on abortion. He said he’s looking to negotiate a deal. He did not commit to a federal ban for a number of weeks,” she said.
Trump Slammed DeSantis
“He did take aim at his GOP rival, Ron DeSantis, for signing a six-week ban into Florida law, saying that just goes too far,” she added.
Biden’s Campaign Issued a Statement
Following Trump’s comments, Joe Biden’s campaign issued a statement highlighting what they perceive as the former president’s inconsistency and evasion on the issue of abortion.
Trump Is Putting Women’s Lives in Danger
Amar Moussa, a campaign spokesman for President Biden, stated, “In Donald Trump’s own words, he is the reason states across the country are able to ban abortion and are putting women’s lives in danger.”
“He’s repeatedly bragged that ‘nobody has ever done more’ for abortion bans, and it was ‘an honor’ to have appointed the justices who eliminated Roe v. Wade,” he said.
Trump Supports Banning Abortion
“Now, facing an election where he has to defend his deeply unpopular actions, he refuses to give Kristen Welker the honest answer on his support for banning abortion nationwide,” Moussa continued.
“The millions of women whose reproductive rights have already been curtailed know where Donald Trump stands on this issue.
If elected again, there’s little doubt he’d go further and advance the same extreme agenda,” he added.
Champion Women’s Rights
Moussa highlighted that President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris would continue to champion women’s rights and push back against efforts to further restrict abortion access.
Only One Side Protects Humans
Several social media users shared their thoughts on the incident.
One Twitter user wrote, “One side protects humans and one doesn’t. You are correct.”
Another user added, “Why would Kristen Welker ask Trump about abortion? He used to be pro-choice, paid for God knows how many abortions himself, then flipped to be anti-abortion to get the Evangelical vote.”
Biden Only Lies
A third user commented, “Yeah, we will care what Biden and Harris say when they can open their mouths without lying.”
Trump Has Always Been Pro-choice
A fourth user wrote, “Trump has been pro-choice his whole life, so now he has to thread the needle and act like he’s pro-life. Sad”
