Donald Trump’s voter base has a lot of policy opinions in common, but one in particular is very important to many of them: abortion.
Now, Trump is facing backlash from pro-life activists for calling Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ signing of a six-week ban on abortion a “terrible mistake.”
On NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Trump also repeatedly refused to say whether he would support a federal ban on abortion.
Conservative commentator and Daily Wire host Ben Shapiro is one of many conservatives who is not happy with Trump’s statements, saying, “That is not a pro-life position by any stretch of the imagination.”
“He made a comment suggesting that heartbeat bills, like to protect the lives of the unborn in states, are terrible. Which is not only not pro-life, it’s an awful thing to say,” Shapiro continues.
Shapiro also believes that what Trump said was “morally egregious,” explaining that Trump believes “heartbeat bills, you know, to protect babies in the womb past week five, week six, those are terrible.”
Dave Rubin doesn’t agree with Shapiro on what public policy related to abortion should be, but believes that “everything Ben said there was right.”
“Ben is completely right there on the equivocation that Trump is doing, that somehow this has been terrible,” he adds. “It doesn’t really make sense.”
