Trump too two steps forward to reverse ROE v WADE and now has tried to take 3 steps back saying not my call but “Gods”

Trump reportedly told people in private that a reversal of Roe will anger Republicans and anger women

Despite the fact that he helped facilitate today’s ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court that overturned Roe v. Wade, former President Donald Trump has said privately reversing the landmark ruling wouldn’t be a good thing for the Republican Party, The New York Times reports.

After a draft of the coming decision was leaked in May, Trump reportedly told people repeatedly that he believes it will be “bad for Republicans.”

“The decision, Mr. Trump has told friends and advisers, will anger suburban women, a group who helped tilt the 2020 presidential race to Joseph R. Biden Jr., and will lead to a backlash against Republicans in the November midterm elections,” The Times reports. “In other conversations, Mr. Trump has told people that measures like the six-week abortion ban in Texas, which allows people to file lawsuits against those who enable abortions beyond that time-frame, are ‘so stupid,’ according to a person with direct knowledge of the discussions. The Supreme Court let the measure stand in December 2021.”

In an interview with Fox News about the ruling, Trump dodged a question about the role he played and instead said “God made the decision.”

  1. Just another instance of the old Vonnegut quote; “Be careful who you pretend to be.”

    Politicians who lie to gain power, wield power only so long as they do so in the name of the lie.
