WATCH LIVE: Trump to deliv­er remarks dur­ing Iowa cam­paign stop

[embed­ded con­tent]
For­mer Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump will address a crowd of sup­port­ers in Dubuque, Iowa, on Wednes­day as he faces back­lash over a recent com­ment on abor­tion.
Trump said Gov. Ron DeSan­tis’s (R‑FL) deci­sion to sign a six-week ban on abor­tion was a “ter­ri­ble thing and a ter­ri­ble mis­take,” seem­ing­ly back­track­ing on his his­tor­i­cal­ly anti-abor­tion stance.

Trump also declined to state whether he sup­ports a fed­er­al 15-week ban on abor­tion, which sev­er­al chal­lengers, includ­ing Sen. Tim Scott (R‑SC), have endorsed.
The com­ment has earned him crit­i­cism from hard­core anti-abor­tion­ists, includ­ing Gov. Kim Reynolds (R‑IA), who stat­ed that pro­tect­ing an “inno­cent life” is nev­er a “ter­ri­ble thing.”

It’s nev­er a “ter­ri­ble thing” to pro­tect inno­cent life. I’m proud of the fetal heart­beat bill the Iowa leg­is­la­ture passed and I signed in 2018 and again ear­li­er this year.
