As reported by the US media on Sunday, former US President Donald Trump, who helped secure the Supreme Court’s decision to restrict access to abortion in the United States, is now concerned that the decision may harm his chances of reelection.
Roe vs Wade
President Trump has been described as “the man most responsible” for Friday’s 5-4 Supreme Court ruling that overturned the Roe vs Wade precedent after 50 years, by the New York Times. Three of the five judges who overturned Roe v. Wade’s protections for women were Trump appointees.
His four-year reign as US president saw him nominate 234 conservative judges who were eventually confirmed by the Republican-controlled Senate. Read More
New York Times
According to the New York Times, Trump has been telling his followers for weeks that “overturning Roe would be disastrous for Republicans” for months.
Despite the court’s verdict, Trump told Fox News that “God made the choice,” which, “in the end… will work out for everybody.”
However, in private, he described the turnabout as ‘terrible’ for the party. A draught of the expected judgement surfaced in May, and for weeks, Trump remained extremely tight-lipped about it. Learn More
Would anger suburban women
His friends and advisers advised him that the verdict “would anger suburban women, a group that helped swing the 2020 presidential race to Joe Biden and will lead to a backlash against Republicans in the November midterm elections,” according to NYT.
It isn’t just Trump who is concerned about the ruling’s implications for November and beyond.
Booker, who is facing incumbent Republican Rand Paul for U.S. Senate, urged Democrats to vote if they wanted liberals in the courts and other crucial seats. “We need a record-breaking number of people to come out. In a videotape that aired on the Wave news station in Kentucky, he says, “We need democracy to be real here.”
Currently, there is an open seat in both the mayor’s office and in the United States House of Representatives. On to the United States Senate. “This election cycle, we can reshape Kentucky,” Booker added.
Conservative Center for Urban Renewal and Education founder
The conservative Center for Urban Renewal and Education founder, Star Parker, reminded Republican voters that the ruling has “major consequences” for both races since “every political candidate will be challenged about their exact positions on abortion.”
Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren warned Democrats of the GOP’s efforts to bring in “extreme justices” into the US courts and asked them to vote in November’s midterm elections.
It was report in the Boston Globe that Friday’s decision “pushed abortion to the heart of the November elections….”
“With just over four months until the next round of voting,… According to the Boston Globe, Democrats are aiming to use. The unexpected erasure of a precedent depended on by millions of women” as a rallying cry for their weary base.
This fall’s midterm elections are depict as a chance for voters to protect abortion rights. And warn that other freedoms could be at jeopardy if Republicans win,” the report stated.
Predictions of Republican gains in the House and Senate
Predictions of Republican gains in the House and Senate were widely discredit prior to this decision. And Democratic Vice President Joe Biden will serve out the remainder of his term as a lame-duck president.
