Donald Trump has finally broken his silence on the Supreme Court’s ruling on abortion.
Three days after the court overturned Texas’ restrictions on abortion, Trump told radio host Mike Gallagher on Thursday that if he were elected president, the Supreme Court would never rule in favor of abortion.

“You won’t even have to question. You wouldn’t even have to bother going to court. You’re going to know the answers,” Trump said.
The presumptive Republican nominee also reiterated his pro-life stance, warning that Hillary Clinton would try to make the court more liberal if she’s elected.
Dawn Laguens, executive vice president of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, released a statement Thursday slamming Trump for his comments on abortion.
“Trump’s remarks today should send a shiver down the spine of anyone who believes women should have access to safe, legal abortion,” Laguens said in the statement. “Electing Trump means he will fight to take away the very rights the Supreme Court just ruled this week are constitutional and necessary health care.”
In the interview with Gallagher, Trump also criticized Chief Justice John Roberts for not striking down the Affordable Care Act.
“I mean, who would’ve thought that could’ve happened? He could’ve killed it twice and he didn’t. That was terrible. And that was a Bush appointment. I mean that was – that was so bad, that was so bad, what happened,” Trump said.
