Trump thinks he ended the abortion conversation. Biden’s just getting started

A week after Donald Trump hinted at an announcement on a national abortion ban, he seems desperate to put the issue to bed.

“By allowing the States to make their decision … we have taken the Abortion Issue largely out of play,” Trump posted Monday on Truth Social, following a video announcement in which he said individual states should decide the issue.

Good luck with that. Even within his own camp, Trump’s announcement angered anti-abortion zealots, such as former Vice President Mike Pence and Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina.

But frankly, that’s the least of the Trump campaign’s worries. After Trump posted, the Biden-Harris campaign immediately flooded the zone with a campaign designed to make Trump pay for taking a position he hoped would blunt the matter moving forward.

One message, carried by President Joe Biden himself: Don’t trust Trump. 

“If MAGA Republicans put a federal ban on his desk, he’d sign it!” Biden said in his own video response to Trump’s post.
