Trump Was Right – Again

Donald Trump

( – It was back in the fall of 2016 when the soon-to-become-president, Donald Trump, predicted precisely what happened on Friday, June 24, 2022, when the United States Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, putting an end to the claims that abortion is a “constitutional right.”

In killing the 1973 pro-abortion decision, the SCOTUS ruling at the end of last week in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization once again made abortion an issue regulated at the state, not the federal level.

The 6-3 ruling was decided along ideological lines, with three of the six conservative SCOTUS Justices on the bench appointed by President Donald Trump during his term as President of the United States – Neil Gorsuch in 2017, Brett Kavanaugh in 2018, and Amy Coney Barrett in 2020.

It has now re-emerged that while he was debating Hillary Clinton ahead of the 2016 presidential election, Trump had predicted correctly exactly what has happened just now on abortion.

Back then, he stated that if he were to get elected, he would appoint two or three conservative justices to the Supreme Court and that they would then contribute to a ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Trump added that when that happened, the issue of abortion as such would “go back to the individual states,” whose laws would determine its legality once again, just like they did before the now overturned 1973 ruling.

However, Trump elaborated on his prediction only after he was pressed by debate moderator Chris Wallace to do so.

At first, the future President quipped that the pro-abortion Roe v. Wade decision would be abolished if he were to be elected.

“That will happen automatically, in my opinion, because I am putting pro-life justices on the Court,” Trump stated at the time.

His opponent at the time, Hillary Clinton, said she would “defend a woman’s right to make her own decision.”

Donald Trump has now been proven completely right once again, as has been the case with many of his forecasts, even if the abolition of the 1973 ruling didn’t occur on his watch as President but at a time when he isn’t in the White House.
