Donald Trump wouldn’t say if he agrees with Supreme Court ruling upholding new Texas heartbeat law that bans abortion after six weeks – or when a fetal heartbeat can be detected .

In his first on-camera interview since leaving, Trump said the decision was likely temporary.

“I know the decision was very complex and also probably temporary,” the former president told Sharyl Attkisson in an interview recorded Saturday in Bedminster, New Jersey. “I think other things are going to happen and that will be the big deal and the big picture.”

The full interview will air on Sunday, September 12 on Full Measure.

Asked if he supports the new decision, Trump dodged the question – instead taking credit for a series of conservative rulings due to his appointment of three Supreme Court justices during his four years in office. mandate.

“Both sides seem to agree that this decision is largely yours based on the Supreme Court choices you made. Do you agree with the decision? Attkisson asked.

‘Well, I’ll tell you this: we have a Supreme Court that’s very different from what it was before, it was acting in a very strange way. And I think that’s probably not in the best interests of our country’ ‘, Trump said.

Of the new law, the former president said, “I’m studying it right now.”

Former President Donald Trump did not say in an interview recorded Saturday whether he agrees with the Supreme Court allowing a new abortion bill to pass in Texas.

The Texas law has received widespread criticism from progressive and pro-choice activists and has been praised by the pro-life community.

Progressive lawmakers even last week proposed a bill limiting the terms of Supreme Court justices in response to the ruling, and the Senate has launched an investigation into the most restrictive abortion law to date.

Trump’s comments to Attkisson were his first reaction to the Supreme Court’s decision last week not to block controversial new abortion restrictions in Texas from becoming law.

“We’ll see what happens,” the former president said in an excerpt from the interview. “But we’re sending the decision and we’re also looking at what they did in Texas.”

“But we have great confidence in the governor, the attorney general and the lieutenant governor,” he added. “There are a lot of great people in Texas and we have a lot of fans and a lot of support in Texas.”

Trump previewed: “So we’re going to announce something in the next week or two.”

The new Texas law is the most restrictive abortion law and relies on private citizens to sue providers if they terminate a past pregnancy when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which falls approximately six weeks after conception.

In unplanned pregnancies, many women still do not know they are pregnant after six weeks.

The decision immediately caused a divide, as progressives said it was proof that a conservative-majority Supreme Court would lead to reversals of abortion rights.

President Joe Biden’s chief of staff, Ron Klain, said the administration is “seeking legal remedies to protect women who seek” abortions in Texas after six weeks of pregnancy.

When asked if there wasn’t much the White House could do, Klain told CNN’s State of the Union host Dana Bash: “I hope there isn’t much the White House can do. is not reality.”

“We have the best attorneys in the Department of Justice seeking legal remedies to protect women seeking to exercise their constitutional rights,” he continued. “We have the HHS team looking at ways we can do to try to get women the health care services they need in the face of this Texas law. And we have the Gender Policy Council here at the White House, the first time a president has had a policy council dedicated to gender issues, coordinating all of this work to come up with options for the president and vice president to consider.

“So you think it’s possible you can do something federally?” Bash pushed.

“We will find ways, if they are possible – and I think they are possible,” he said. “We’re going to find ways to make a difference for women in Texas to try to protect their constitutional rights, yes.”
