HeadlineMay 22, 2024

Donald Trump suggested in an interview on Tuesday that he supports restrictions on birth control. He was questioned by a journalist at KDKA in Pittsburgh.

Jon Delano: “Do you support any restrictions on a person’s right to contraception?”

Donald Trump: “Well, we’re looking at that, and I’m going to have a policy on that very shortly. And I think it’s something that you’ll find interesting.”

Trump went on to say “some states are going to have different policy than others.” After facing backlash, Trump wrote on social media that he would “never advocate imposing restrictions on birth control.”
