President Joe Biden slammed former President Donald Trump's stance on abortion Tuesday during a campaign stop in Tampa, zeroing in on an issue top Democrats hope will turn out voters in November.

Why it matters: It's the president's first stop in Florida since the state Supreme Court ruled in two key cases impacting abortion access in Florida and across the South.

What he's saying: "In America today, women have fewer rights than their mothers and their grandmothers had because of Donald Trump."

The other side: A Trump campaign spokesperson said Biden and Democrats are "radically out of touch," according to the Tampa Bay Times.
