Trump nói rằng việc hạn chế phá thai nên giao cho các bang

sau nhiều tháng có tín hiệu trái chiều, Donald Trump nói rằng bất kỳ bang nào quyết định “phải là luật pháp của đất nước”, đồng thời nói thêm rằng ông “ủng hộ mạnh mẽ trường hợp ngoại lệ đối với hiếp dâm, loạn luân và tính mạng của người mẹ”

Former President Donald J. Trump said in a video statement on Monday that abortion rights should be left up to the states, remarks that came after months of mixed signals on an issue that he and his advisers have worried could cost him dearly in the election (phải trả giá đắt trong cuộc bầu cử).

Mr. Trump said his view was that the states should decide through legislation, and that “whatever they decide must be the law of the land, and in this case, the law of the state.” But he added that he was “strongly in favor of exceptions for rape, incest and life of the mother.”

Mr. Trump, who has been trying to balance his desire to please the conservative base with his attempts to avoid alienating swing voters, faced blowback after The New York Times reported in February that he had said privately that he liked the idea of a 16-week national ban. He then talked about such a ban publicly, and the backlash continued. So Mr. Trump’s advisers tried to find a way for him to avoid a more specific position (vị trí cụ thể) at a time when Republicans across the country are struggling with how to address abortion.

As recently as February, Mr. Trump had privately told advisers he liked the idea of a 16-week national abortion ban with three exceptions, in cases of rape or incest, or to save the life of the mother, according to two people with direct knowledge of his deliberations. He made those comments as he was trying to fend off his last significant primary rival, Nikki Haley, in her home state, South Carolina.

He told his aides he wanted to wait until the Republican presidential primary contest (cuộc tranh cử sơ bộ tổng thống) was over to publicly discuss his views, because he didn’t want to alienate social conservatives before he wrapped up the nomination (kết thúc việc đề cử), the two people said.

Still, even as Mr. Trump has avoided taking a clear public position on abortion (lập trường công khai rõ ràng về việc phá thai), he often proudly highlights his role in appointing the Supreme Court justices who ultimately allowed Roe to be overturned.

And at a Christian media convention in February, even as he avoided uttering the word abortion, Mr. Trump told attendees that he “took historic action to protect the unborn.” He also demonized Democrats on the issue, making the exaggerated claim that liberals support policies that would “kill the unborn in the sixth and seventh and eighth and ninth months, even after birth” and falsely claiming that the Biden administration had “hunted down” anti-abortion activists.
