Trump Accuses Biden Of Wanting To ‘Execute’ Babies After Birth In Barrage Of Misleading Tweets

President Donald Trump on Tuesday raged at Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, hurling a series of false accusations after the former vice president pledged to enact legislation making Roe v. Wade “the law of the land” if it were overturned by the Supreme Court.

Trump tweeted that Biden would attempt to pack the Supreme Court to protect Roe v. Wade if he wins the election and falsely accused the former vice president of being “in favor” of late term abortions “right up until the time of birth, and beyond.”

At a town hall event in Miami on Monday, Biden was asked how he planned to protect reproductive rights if Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed, giving the High Court a solid conservative majority.

Biden told NBC’s Lester Hold that “Number one, we don’t know exactly what she will do, although expectation is that she may very well move to … overrule Roe.”

“And the only thing, the only responsible response to that would be to pass legislation making Roe the law of the land. That’s what I would do,” he continued.

Biden has repeatedly stated that if the Supreme Court ruled that abortion was unconstitutional, he would pass legislation making the landmark Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion in the U.S., law.

Trump has regularly targeted Democrats over their stances on abortion, including a number of exaggerated attacks on Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D), who Trump said last month “is in favor of executing babies after birth,” and now claims that Biden supports the same.
