Who remembers this clip from the 2016 presidential debates between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton?
Then-candidate Donald Trump was asked if he would like to see the Supreme Court overturn Roe v Wade.
Trump responded by saying:
“Well if we put another two or perhaps three justices on that will happen. That will happen automatically in my opinion because I am putting pro-life justices on the court. I will say this it will go back to the states and the states will then make a determination.”
And that’s exactly what happened with Friday’s historic ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Remember when Trump said he’d put 2-3 justices on the Court who would overturn Roe v. Wade and then that was exactly what happened? pic.twitter.com/o0sqDTWnkf

Trump blasted Clinton over abortions being permitted days before the babies will be born.
"If you go with what Hillary is saying, in the ninth month you can take the baby and rip the baby out of the womb of the mother just prior to the birth of the baby," Trump said.
"It's not okay with me."
President Donald Trump nominated three justices for the Supreme Court – Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett.
All three voted to overturn Roe v. Wade.
