Trump credits himself for abortion ruling
Former President Trump on Friday gave himself credit for the Supreme Court's decision to overturn landmark abortion ruling Roe v. Wade.
Driving the news: Trump said in a statement that Friday's decision, as well as other recent Supreme Court rulings, were a result of his nominating three conservative justices to the high court.
- Trump nominated Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett — all three of which voted in support of overturning Roe.
What he's saying: "Today’s decision, which is the biggest WIN for LIFE in a generation, along with other decisions that have been announced recently, were only made possible because I delivered everything as promised, including nominating and getting three highly respected and strong Constitutionalists confirmed to the United States Supreme Court," Trump said.
