Wade tilts on legalizing abortion rights by allowing states to choose whether to ban abortion.
“It is certainly possible,”
“And maybe they’ll do it differently. Maybe they’ll give it back to the states. They just don’t know what’s going to happen,” he said.
Trump left open the possibility that the court might not necessarily make decisions in his favor given the recent decisions of the court ruling against him.
