Biden pokes fun at Trump Bible, says abortion should be 'federal right'

Dans Asie / Philippines

While campaigning in Florida on Tuesday (April 23) President Joe Biden poked fun at Donald Trump's Bible and called for voters to hold him "accountable" for getting Roe v Wade overturned. "He described the Dobbs decision as a miracle. Maybe it's coming from that Bible he's trying to sell. I almost wanted to buy one just to see what the hell is in it," Biden told a crowd of supporters in Tampa. Earlier this month, Florida's Supreme Court cleared the way for a six-week abortion ban starting May 1, a time-frame before many women realize they are pregnant. Biden's re-election campaign quickly declared battle, saying he would win the state in November because of the ban. U.S. voters overwhelmingly reject strict abortion bans, polls and state ballot initiatives show. Abortion is a top issue in the 2024 election, and Democrats believe harsh restrictions like in Florida and Arizona, which earlier this month upheld a 160-year-old abortion ban, will push voters to back Biden. Florida has a hefty 30 Electoral College votes and for a long time was a highly coveted battleground state, but Republicans have pulled away from Democrats there in recent years. Some Biden aides think that Democrats' optimism in the state could be misplaced. Trump won Florida in 2020 with 51.2% of the vote compared with Biden's 47.9%. In 2022, Republican Ron DeSantis won the governor's race in a landslide, with 59.4% of the vote.
