In a new interview with CBN, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump went after pro-abortion candidate Hillary Clinton’s radical abortion views. The interview comes on the heels of a national debate in which Trump and Clinton feuded over the issue of abortion.
During the debate Trump made it very clear that he will appoint pro-life justices to the Supreme Court who would be likely to overturn the Roe versus Wade decision that has led to 58 million abortions. Meanwhile, Clinton made it clear that she wants a Supreme Court nominee who will support unlimited abortion.
“Well, according to the rules of Hillary you can take the baby at nine months and you can imagine what you have to do to that baby to get it out,” he said to Robertson, “and you can take that baby at nine months and you can abort. And a day prior to birth you can take that baby. And I said that’s unacceptable.”
Trump said he sees the pro-life movement becoming more politically popular. “It’s becoming more standard politically and I think that’s a good thing,” he said.
Trump said he will put “new people on the defense team” in his administration and said he will look to the example set by Justice Antonin Scalia when considering replacing Supreme Court justices. “He was sort of a role model from the standpoint of what I’m looking to do in terms of replacing our judges,” Trump told Robertson, noting that the next president will likely replace two justices and possibly even four.
Trump re-iterated that he will seek to appoint justices approved by the Federalist Society who are pro-life and support the Second amendment.
