Trump Boasts Overturning Roe v. Wade But Backs State Authority Over Abortion

HeadlineApr 09, 2024

Special counsel Jack Smith is urging the Supreme Court to dismiss Donald Trump’s bid for immunity in his federal election interference case, arguing presidents are subject to criminal law. Supreme Court justices are scheduled to hear arguments in the case on April 25.

In other Trump news, the GOP front-runner said Monday abortion rights should be decided by states. Trump has refrained from endorsing a national abortion ban, but has taken credit for the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade, which has led to a cascade of abortion bans in Republican-run states, including Florida, where a six-week ban is set to go into effect May 1.
