Donald Trump is now blaming the Republican Party's disappointing midterm performance on the issue of abortion, rather than focusing on the failure of the candidates he endorsed. In a post on Truth Social, Trump wrote in part, “It wasn’t my fault that the Republicans didn’t live up to expectations in the MidTerms. I was 233-20! It was the ‘abortion issue,’ poorly handled by many Republicans, especially those that firmly insisted on No Exceptions, even in the case of Rape, Incest, or Life of the Mother, that lost large numbers of Voters.” Trump went on to criticize Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's use of campaign funds. Of course, Trump’s endorsement record is a phony one, since he could bolster it as much as he wanted by giving the nod to incumbents and candidates in safe, heavily conservative districts. Some Republicans are upset with Trump for blaming the defeats on abortion when they view the overturning of Roe vs. Wade as a major victory for them. Also, Trump is actually the one to blame for abortion being front in center in the midterms, as his three Supreme Court picks gave conservatives the numbers necessary to overturn the decades-long precedent on the issue.
