President Donald Trump (R) has responded to Arizona's near total abortion ban. Having shared his stance on the issue last week, President Trump is now speaking out against Arizona's decision to uphold an abortion ban based on a 19th-Century law.

In response to the ruling, President Trump reaffirmed that "it's all about states' rights and it needs to be straightened out." "I'm sure that the governor and everybody else will bring it back into reason and that will be taken care of," he added.

In his announcement last week, President Trump shared that states should determine their abortion laws, adding that he would not sign a federal ban and that states should keep in mind rape, incest, and the life of the mother.

His position on the issue has drawn a mixed reactions from conservatives, and abortion is an issue that Democrats are hoping to leverage for a huge legislative win in 2024.

"Arizona is going to definitely change. Everybody wants that to happen," the Republican challenger speculated.

Senatorial hopeful Kari Lake (R), a staunch supporter of President Trump, similarly derided the ruling yesterday in a statement released on social media.

"I understand the fear, anxiety and joy of pregnancy and motherhood," she shared.

"I wholeheartedly agree with President Trump - this is a very personal issue that should be determined by each individual state and her people. I oppose today's ruling, and I am calling on Katie Hobbs and the State Legislature to come up with an immediate common sense solution that Arizonans can support."

Lake affirmed that she would both oppose federal funding for abortions as well as oppose federal bans on abortions should she be elected to the Senate in November.

President Trump spoke to reporters in Atlanta, and when questioned about Florida's court decision earlier this month to uphold Florida's 15-week ban and pave the way for a six-week ban, he said that Florida "is probably going to change."
