Musk Comments On Harris Social Media Post

Hello everyone. We’ve got some hot news brewing in the political arena! Elon Musk, the owner of X, has taken a swing at Vice President Kamala Harris over her recent comments about former President Trump’s stance on a national abortion ban. Let’s dive into the details.

On Monday, Harris posted on Musk’s platform, claiming, “Donald Trump would ban abortion nationwide.” She added that she and President Joe Biden would do everything in their power to stop him and restore women’s reproductive freedom.

However, Harris’ post was quickly countered by Community Notes, the platform’s feature for adding context to potentially misleading messages. Users provided information from CNN, BBC, The Associated Press, The New York Times, and Trump’s own Truth Social account, which contradicted Harris’ statement.

Trump has consistently said that abortion limits should be left to the states. Recently, he reiterated his position in a video on Truth Social: “My view is now that we have abortion where everybody wanted it from a legal standpoint, the states will determine by vote or legislation or perhaps both. And whatever they decide must be the law of the land — in this case, the law of the state.”

The Associated Press even ran a headline, “Trump declines to endorse a national abortion ban. He says limits should be left to the states,” clearly disputing Harris’ claim.

Musk didn’t hold back, accusing Harris of “lying” on his platform. He tweeted, “When will politicians, or at least the intern who runs their account, learn that lying on this platform doesn’t work anymore?”

This isn’t the first time Trump has been asked about his abortion stance. During CNN’s Presidential Debate last week, he was questioned about blocking abortion medication. Trump responded, “First of all, the Supreme Court just approved the abortion pill, and I agree with their decision to have done that, and I will not block it.”

Trump has praised the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, which returned the decision on abortion access to the states. He highlighted his role in appointing three Supreme Court justices who voted to overturn Roe v. Wade, stating, “Now the states are working it out.”

However, Trump faced criticism for claiming the decision was something “everyone wanted.” Polls show that while a majority of Americans support legal abortion in some form, they differ on the specifics. A Gallup survey last year found 61 percent of Americans thought overturning Roe was a “bad thing.”

Trump maintains that states are now making their own decisions regarding abortion. He also emphasized his belief in exceptions for rape, incest, and the life of the mother, aligning himself with former President Ronald Reagan’s stance.
