California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) has called “total BS” the Republican claim that Democrats support and even promote abortion rights up to and after birth.
“It’s made up, it’s a political thing. People are not pursuing end-of-cycle abortion,” Newsom told CNN’s Dana Bash in a lengthy interview that aired Monday.
Former President Donald Trump stated the untruth during his interview with NBC’s Kristen Welker on “Meet The Press” that aired Sunday.
However, Newsom said this was “exactly where” Republicans needed to go now “because they have gone too far on the other side.”
“This is a false flag,” he told Bash. “This is where they need to go to get out of the mess they have created because they don’t believe in basic agency and freedom for women. This whole issue is a political issue. And with all due respect, I am not surprised that Donald Trump is saying this.”
“I call this whole debate BS, it is purely a political canard,” he added.
