President Joe Biden slammed Donald Trump in particular for claiming credit for ‘destroying’ the Roe v. Wade ruling, which upheld abortion rights nationwide.

On Wednesday morning, Biden uploaded a screenshot of a Trump post on Truth Social and highlighted in red, “I was able to kill Roe v. Wade.”

That is as plain as it gets, I think. In the afternoon, Biden tweeted, “Donald Trump and MAGA Republicans are to blame for killing Roe v. Wade.”

‘And if you vote for them, they’ll go even further.’

Trump boasted about using his power as president to appoint Supreme Court justices who voted to end the 1973 landmark decision. Roe v Wade

‘After 50 years of failure, with nobody coming even close, I was able to kill Roe v.

Trump also claimed credit for more than a dozen states passing laws limiting abortion since the high court overturned Roe v Wade in June.

‘Without me there would be no 6 weeks, 10 weeks, 15 weeks, or whatever is finally agreed to,’ Trump wrote.

‘It’s simple, folks. Do you want four more years of that?’ tweeted Biden. ‘If you don’t, pitch in to our campaign.’

And in early May, Biden mocked House Republicans for failing to spell out specific protections for veterans programs in legislation they passed, by sharing a flow chart.
