This week was far from being the best for Donald Trump, the Republican front-runner being highly criticized for his latest statements regarding the abortion law. Still, like expected, he immediately changed his position on this issue, just like he did numerous times.
During CBS’s “Face the Nation”, Mr. Trump said that abortion should remain legal, despite what his statements, made a few days ago.
Trump doesn’t want to change anything after all
“Right now, the laws are set. And that’s the way the laws are,” the Republican presidential candidate told CBS’ John Dickerson, quoted by The Washington Post. “At this moment the laws are set. The laws are set. And I think we have to leave it that way.”
Shortly after this, one of the most well known antiabortion organizations, the Susan B. Anthony List, accused Donald Trump of repeatedly reversing himself on the abortion law, says the same source.
“He has completely contradicted himself. If this is his position, he has just disqualified himself as the GOP nominee,” said the president of the Susan B. Anthony List, Marjorie Dannenfelser. “At some point, the candidate’s words must stand on their own. What do you believe, Mr. Trump? No one knows.”
We already know that there are a lot of fellow Republicans that are not fancying Trump’s ideas and the fact that they have also questioned his views on the abortion law are not surprising at all.
But will he change the abortion law?
His campaign wanted to make things clear though – like they weren’t clear enough – and issued a statement, clarifying the remarks made by the businessman.
“Mr. Trump gave an accurate account of the law as it is today and made clear it must stay that way now — until he is president. Then he will change the law through his judicial appointments and allow the states to protect the unborn. There is nothing new or different here.”
