Trump says he'll work 'side by side' with group that wants abortion 'eradicated'

WASHINGTON — Former President Donald Trump said Monday that if reelected he plans to work “side by side” with a newly formed religious organization that says abortion is the “greatest atrocity facing” the United States and should be “eradicated entirely.”

During two-minute recorded remarks played at The Danbury Institute’s inaugural Life & Liberty Forum in Indianapolis, Trump avoided using the word “abortion,” but said he hopes to protect “innocent life” if reelected in November.

“We have to defend religious liberty, free speech, innocent life, and the heritage and tradition that built America into the greatest nation in the history of the world,” Trump said. “But now we are, as you know, a declining nation.”

Trump, the Republican Party’s presumptive presidential nominee, said that he hopes to work alongside the institute to defend those values.

many more votes catering to them. He could even moderate his abortion stance and they would still have faith in him. They would tell themselves he's just being forced to say that to win, you'll see.

8. Trump has already lost
Tue Jun 11, 2024, 01:15 PM

the independents and GOP fence-sitters. He lost the "double-haters." He lost the reproductive rights demographic. He lost the vets (suckers and losers). He lost the UKR/EU/NATO coalition. Who has he gained? The barbershop quartets? Oh. He gained the fascists. He gained the Nazis. He gained the criminals. He gained the anti-democracy bloc- those who want to eliminate the US Constitution. He is actively planning on losing the election by at least 12 million votes because it doesn't matter to him. Why? Because he's planning on sabotaging the general election (see Georgia) and getting "appointed" the next president. That's the only way he wins, and he knows it. The problem for him is that everyone else knows it.

5. What you have just written should be exactly our message going forward.

It makes people who might still be unsure of who they should vote for or whether they should vote AT ALL have pause. It is succinct and forceful. I would add "Is this what you want?"

prosecution. The saddest thing is that religulous people will make deals with him to get their way. Making deals with the Devil in the name of their God. They've totally lost their way.
