DeSantis responds to Trump criticism of six week abortion ban


September 18th, 2023 by Ric Hanson

(Radio Iowa) – Republican presidential candidate Ron DeSantis says Donald Trump’s recent statements on the abortion issue show the former president’s values are out of step with Iowa G-O-P voters. Trump said during an interview with NBC’s Meet the Press that the six week abortion ban DeSantis signed into law this spring was a terrible mistake.

DeSantis suggests Trump’s remarks are a window into how Trump’s 2024 campaign promises are changing when compared to his 2016 platform.

Trump also indicated during his Meet the Press interview that he’d negotiate a deal on abortion that’s acceptable to both sides. DeSantis says that’s “the danger” of returning Trump to the White House for a second term.

DeSantis says. “I think if he’s going into this saying he’s going to make the Democrats happy with respect to right to life, I think all pro-lifers should know that he’s preparing to sell you out.” DeSantis made his comments this (Monday) afternoon during an interview with Radio Iowa.
