‘Wow’: Trump Claims Joe Biden Is ‘More Liberal’ Than Elizabeth Warren On Abortion Rights

President Trump seems to believe Democratic challenger Joe Biden is now “more liberal” than former Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren on abortion rights.

Responding to comments Biden made during a town hall in Miami on Monday, Trump said he was taken aback by Biden’s desire to codify abortion should the Supreme Court overturn Roe v. Wade.

“Wow,” Trump tweeted. “Joe Biden just took a more Liberal position on Roe v. Wade than Elizabeth Warren at her highest. He also wants to PACK our great United States Supreme Court. This is what the Dems will do. Remember as they try changing positions before elections end. GET OUT AND VOTE!”

During the town hall event, Biden said President Trump’s decision to nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett — who has vocalized opposition to abortion — to fill a Supreme Court vacancy could put the legality of abortion in question.

“Considering the new Supreme Court nomination of [Judge] Amy Coney Barrett, what are your plans to protect women’s reproductive rights in the U.S.?” Biden was asked, as the Washington Times reports.

“Number one, we don’t know exactly what she will do, although the expectation is that she may very well move to over, overview, overrule Roe,” Biden responded. “The only responsible response to that would be to pass legislation making Roe the law of the land. That’s what I would do.”

The report adds:

Biden has been reluctant to criticize Judge Barrett by name on the campaign trail. At the first presidential debate opposite President Trump last month, Mr. Biden said he was “not opposed” to Judge Barrett personally and added, “She seems like a very fine person.”

NBC News reported during the Democratic primary last year that Warren previously criticized Biden’s support for the Hyde Amendment, which bars federal funds from paying for abortions, and said it puts him at odds with the rest of the Democratic candidates:

Sen. Elizabeth Warren told the audience at an MSNBC town hall Wednesday that Joe Biden is wrong for supporting a ban on federal funding for abortion services and that, if President Donald Trump were anyone else, he “would be carried out in handcuffs,” NBC News reported.

Biden’s campaign has told NBC News that the former vice president supports the decades-old Hyde Amendment, which bars taxpayer-funded programs like Medicaid from paying for abortions, with some exceptions. That makes him an outlier in the crowded Democratic field that Biden leads.
