Stahl: But what about overturning this law?

Trump: There are a couple things. They’ll be pro-life. In terms of the whole gun situation, we know the Second Amendment and everybody’s talking about the Second Amendment and they’re trying to dice it up and change it. They’re going to be very pro-Second Amendment. But having to do with abortion, if it ever were overturned, it would go back to the states.”

Stahl: “But then some women won’t be able to get an abortion.”

Trump: “No, it’ll go back to the states.”

Stahl: “No, some—”

Trump: Yeah, well, they’ll perhaps have to go—they’ll have to go to another state.”

Stahl: “And that’s OK?”

Trump: “Well, we’ll see what happens. It’s got a long way to go, just so you understand. That has a long, long way to go.”


To be clear: this is garbled nonsense, and yet another example of the ways in which Trump is utterly at sea, completely ill-suited for the job America just hired him for. But God knows that plenty of Trump appointees are smarter than he is, and willing to try their hardest to make outlawing abortion a reality.
