President Trump gives remarks on Texas abortion ban, Afghanistan crisis in new interview
UPDATED 8:53 AM PT – Monday, September 6, 2021
President Trump weighed in on controversial topics in a wide-ranging interview. On Saturday, the interview on Full Measure brought up the recent Supreme Court decision on abortions in Texas.
Last week, the Supreme Court ruled to uphold a near total ban on abortions in the state. Many have said Trump’s Supreme Court nominees allegedly affected the outcome.
“We do have a Supreme Court that’s a lot different than it was,” he stated. “Before, it was acting very strangely and I think probably not in the interest of our country.
President Trump created the most Pro-life Court we have ever had.
The SCOTUS ruling on the Texas Heartbeat Bill confirms that!

The 45th president added he has been studying the ruling.
“I know that the ruling was very complex and and also probably temporary,” he expressed. “I think other things will happen and that will be the big deal and the big picture, so we’ll see what would happen.”
Also on the table, Trump discussed the recent crisis in Afghanistan, which fell to the Taliban several weeks ago after Joe Biden pulled all U.S. troops. Although Biden declared the 20 year war to be over, Trump wasn’t so sure in consideration of the Afghan refugees.
“I don’t know, because you have people going all over the world and being dropped all over the world right now,” he mentioned. “Nobody knows who the hell they are.”
“Who are all of the people coming into our Country?…How many terrorists are among them? How much money is this costing? With all of these developments, our Country is more unsafe now than ever before—and many Americans are still left behind!”

He added these were people that “rushed” into planes.
“These people, many of these people are going to be terrorists, they’re going to be terrorists,” he asserted. “They were very powerful, very energetic in getting onto the aircraft.”
In response to a question regarding vetting for Afghan refugees, Trump stated they aren’t doing that.
“You can’t, because there is no documentation in that country, there’s virtually no documentation,” he explained. “They didn’t vet them, they didn’t even try to vet them. They’re trying to vet them now, but it’s a little bit late.”
However, Afghan’s would be faced with a difficult journey as the U.S. government has tried to work around legal issues to give refugees assistance.
