Is Donald Trump Pro-Choice Again?
Published September 18, 2023Asked whether he would support a 15 week abortion ban, Trump refused to answer. He also would not say if the preborn baby has any constitutional rights.
NBC’s Meet the Press aired the first extensive mainstream media interview with former President Donald Trump of the 2024 campaign. The interview Kicked off the popular Sunday morning political show under a new host, Kristen Welker.
During the interview, Welker peppered Trump with questions, often attempting to fact-check him with dubious claims of her own.
On abortion, Ms. Welker took a decidedly pro-abortion position, presenting only the abortion lobby’s talking points and falsely “fact-checking” Trump by stating that Democrats do not support abortion until birth, which of course, they do.

He instead cast himself as a dealmaker that would be able to bring the nation together around some form European-style abortion policy that gradually protects more babies as they develop further through the pregnancy.
Most noticeably, Trump avoided describing himself as pro-life even once in the ten-minute segment. Instead, he promised to find a middle ground that would “make everyone happy” by leading a bi-partisan consensus to determine at what point during a pregnancy an innocent child in the womb can be intentionally killed.
