Former President Donald Trump said abortion laws should be decided by states in a video addressing his 2024 presidential campaign shared on his Truth Social account Monday (April 8).

“Many people have asked me what my position is on abortion and abortion rights,” Trump said. “My view is now that we have abortion where everybody wanted it from a legal standpoint, the states will determine by vote or legislation or perhaps both. And whatever they decide must be the law of the land — in this case, the law of the state.”

The former president didn't specify when in a pregnancy he believed abortion should be banned, but acknowledged that states had varying restrictions following the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade in 2022.

“Many states will be different. Many will have a different number of weeks or some will have more conservative than others and that’s what they will be,” Trump said. “At the end of the day it’s all about will of the people.”

Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee for the 2024 presidential election, had previously teased that he would address "abortion and abortion rights" publicly prior to sharing the video on Monday. New restrictions have been implemented by Republican-led states following the overturning of Roe v. Wade in 2022, which has been a strength for Democrats in numerous polls, according to the Associated Press.

“You must follow your heart on this issue,” Trump said. “But remember, you must also win elections to restore our culture and, in fact, to save our country, which is currently and very sadly a nation in decline.”
