Mr. Trump, who had previously declared his support for abortion rights before changing his mind in 2011 as he mulled running for president that year, appointed three conservative justices to the Supreme Court, giving the court the necessary majority to overturn the Roe ruling. Regarding the 2024 general election, Democrats have clarified that if Mr. Trump is the nominee, they want to make his part in Roe’s end a key focus.
According to Steve Deace, a conservative talk show host in Iowa who has endorsed Mr. DeSantis, “this further confirms to Iowans this is not the same Trump we once knew. This Trump only attacks Republicans from the left.”

He also pointed out that the “disastrous results of Donald Trump compromising with Democrats” while he was president included “$7 trillion in new debt” and “an unfinished border wall.”
