President Donald Trump told Fox News that he expects Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett to strike down Roe v. Wade and the right to have an abortion.
Trump made the remarks in an interview that aired Sunday on Fox & Friends after host Pete Hegseth noted that the president had previously said that his Supreme Court picks would “automatically” overturn Roe v. Wade.
“I didn’t think it was for me to discuss that with her,” Trump explained. “Because it’s something that she’s going to be ruling on. And this is what I was told — although, I would have had the right to do that.”
“But if you look at her past actions and rulings, I guess, she maybe would be in the category that you mentioned,” he added. “I don’t know. I can say this, that she is certainly conservative in her views and her rulings. And we’ll have to see how that all works out.”

Trump pushes closing claim that ‘suburban women are STRONG’ for his campaign
President Donald Trump continued to ignore polling data to push his conspiracy theory that Joe Biden will destroy the suburbs and that is why suburban women are backing him.
None of that is true, there is no evidence that Trump's return to redlining policies will destroy the suburbs. And Trump has consistently polled poorly with women, which is a major reason Republicans are fearing that the 2020 election will be a bloodbath for their party.
On Sunday, Trump ignored all of that to push his conspiracy theory again and to falsely claim he's winning the support of women in the suburbs.
White House lawyer part of scheme to smear Hunter Biden — but not even the WSJ would buy it: NYT
In a Sunday article for The New York Times titled, "Trump Had One Last Story to Sell. The Wall Street Journal Wouldn’t Buy It," insiders recalled the White House’s secret, last-ditch effort to change the narrative, and the election -- even though it didn't work.
Journalist Ben Smith wrote in The Times article, "By early October, even people inside the White House believed President Trump’s re-election campaign needed a desperate rescue mission. So three men allied with the president gathered at a house in McLean, Va., to launch one. The host was Arthur Schwartz, a New York public relations man close to President Trump’s eldest son, Donald Jr. The guests were a White House lawyer, Eric Herschmann, and a former deputy White House counsel, Stefan Passantino, according to two people familiar with the meeting."
Trump campaigns in Maine — as Susan Collins announces vote against Amy Coney Barrett
It was a "Tale of Two Republicans in Maine" Sunday as President Donald J. Trump made an "Off the Record" stop to campaign for his re-election and Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), also up for re-election, officially took her stand against Judge Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation vote.
“Because this vote is occurring prior to the election, I will vote against the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett," Collins said. "To be clear, my vote does not reflect any conclusion that I have reached about Judge Barrett's qualifications to serve on the Supreme Court.”
