Donald Trump’s long-awaited statement on abortion is out.

Former President Donald J. Trump said in a video statement on Tuesday that abortion rights should be left up to the states, remarks that came after months of mixed signals on an issue that he and his advisers have worried could cost him dearly in the election.

No “beautiful compromise” of a particular number of weeks.

“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,” Mr. Trump said in the video, which he posted on his Truth Social website.

I’m not going to watch the video before breakfast. And, of course, he lied.

“At the end of the day, this is all about will of the people,” he added, falsely claiming that “all legal scholars” on “both sides” of the political aisle had wanted to see Roe v. Wade end. “That’s where we are right now and that’s what we want — will of the people.”

Biden’s team is on it.

That messaging began on X, the website formerly known as Twitter, by President Biden’s campaign aides shortly after the video posted. And Mr. Trump’s statement underscores that Republicans across the country are grappling with how to handle the issue of abortion since the Dobbs v. Jackson decision rolling back Roe v. Wade came down during 2022, a few months before the midterm elections.

A reasonably fair assessment from the Times’s Trump whisperers. Gift link up top.
