Trump Calmly Explained How He Would Destroy Roe v. Wade Six Years Ago – Were You Paying Attention?
Let’s take a walk down memory lane this fine first weekend in a post-Roe world and examine what Trump said he’d about the egregiously bad 1973 Supreme Court decision that has led to the government-sanctioned slaughter of millions.
Leading up to the 2016 election, Trump vowed to appoint justices who would vote to overturn Roe v. Wade.

“I am pro-life,” then-candidate Trump said during his final debate with Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, as CNBC reported at the time.
When asked if he would like to see the high court overturn Roe, the future president replied that this would be a matter of course if he had his pick for justices.
“That’ll happen automatically, in my opinion, because I am putting pro-life justices on the court,” he answered, according to NBC News. “I will say this: It will go back to the states, and the states will then make a determination.”
Clinton, meanwhile, was abundantly clear where she stood on Roe.
“I strongly support Roe v. Wade,” Clinton said. “I will defend Roe v. Wade. I will defend a woman’s right to make her own decision.”
