Joe Biden attacks Donald Trump for 'killing Roe v Wade' abortion rights

President Joe Biden directly attacked his predecessor Donald Trump for taking credit for 'killing' the Roe v Wade decision that protected abortion rights nationwide.

Biden shared a screenshot of a Truth Social post by Trump on Wednesday morning and circled 'I was able to kill Roe v. Wade' in red.

'That’s about as clear as it gets. Donald Trump and MAGA Republicans are responsible for killing Roe v. Wade,' tweeted Biden in the afternoon.

'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. Wade, much to the "shock" of everyone,' wrote Trump. 'And for the first time put the Pro Life movement in a strong negotiating position over the Radicals that are willing to kill babies even into their 9th month, and beyond.'

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.

Biden underlined part of that sentence in his post.

It was one of Biden's more direct attacks on Trump and his supporters on social media.

Last week after Trump's unruly CNN town hall in which he repeated his election fraud lies and called moderator Kaitlan Collins 'a nasty person', Biden offered himself as an alternative.

'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.
