Right now it’s hard to escape billionaire wannabe President of the United States Donald Trump. He’s everywhere, sucking up the news cycle with sensationalist sloganeering.
Usually, it’s better to ignore him with the hope that without oxygen, his raging fire will be extinguished. But overnight he made some remarkable comments about abortion, and how women who have them should be treated.
The interview with Donald Trump. Post continues below.
Asked a series of questions about what he would do should the US Government pass legislation to make abortion illegal, Trump’s response was: “There needs to be some form of punishment.”
“For the woman?” asked interviewer Chris Matthews.
“Yeah,” Trump replied.
Trump has been hard to pin down on his position on abortion in the past, at one stage saying he was pro-choice, before changing his mind. This occasion was no different.
