The Arizona Supreme Court on Tuesday revived a 19th-century law that banned abortion in almost any circumstances. The exception applies when the life of the pregnant woman is in danger.

When a reporter asked him if he thought Arizona had gone “too far” in maintaining a near-total ban on abortion, Trump agreed.

“Yes they were [longe demais]”This will be corrected,” he said.

Trump said he was confident that Democratic Governor Katie Hobbs would resolve the issue with the Arizona Supreme Court and that everything would go “right.”

The former president was also asked if he would sign a national abortion ban if elected again. He shook his head and said, “No.”

Trump has issued contradictory statements on abortion in recent months, which has frustrated his supporters. There is currently a strong movement in the Republican Party calling for a complete nationwide ban.

However, Trump has tried to avoid expressing strong support for more extreme bans, as such proposals have already been rejected by voters at the ballot box.

At the beginning of the week, for example, the former president posted a video on social media on the topic, but did not mention a national ban. The Republican stated that the right to abortion should be decided by each state.

During his presidency, Trump appointed three conservative justices to the United States Supreme Court. In 2022, the court struck down a law that guaranteed the right to abortion at the national level.

“We did that, and now the states decide what they want,” he said. “It is the will of the people”
