Elon Musk Slams Kamala Harris for ‘Lying’ about Trump  abortion

X boss Elon Musk blasted Democrat Vice President Kamala Harris after he caught her “lying” in a social media post.

Musk responded to a post from Harris that included false claims about President Donald Trump and his position regarding abortion.

In a post on X, which is owned by Musk, Harris declared:

“Donald Trump would ban abortion nationwide.”

“President @JoeBiden and I will do everything in our power to stop him and restore women’s reproductive freedom,” she added.

The post was hit with a notice from Community Notes, the platform’s way for readers to counter messages viewed as false or lacking context.

To refute Harris’s claim, users posted information from CNN, BBC, The Associated Press, The New York Times, and Trump’s own Truth Social account.

Trump has said abortion limits should be left to the states, and he recently posted a video on Truth Social clearly detailing his position.

“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,” Trump said.

“And whatever they decide must be the law of the land — in this case, the law of the state.”

The AP report used to fact-check Harris was bluntly headlined:

“Trump declines to endorse a national abortion ban. He says limits should be left to the states.”

Musk scolded Harris for “lying” about the issue on his social media platform.

As many were quick to point out, Harris clearly knows where Trump stands on the issue so her post could only have sought to mislead voters.

“When will politicians, or at least the intern who runs their account, learn that lying on this platform doesn’t work anymore?” Musk asked.

During CNN’s Presidential Debate last week, Trump was asked about his stance on abortion.

He was also asked whether he would block abortion medication for women.

“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 said, referring to mifepristone.

Trump applauded the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade in 2022 and return the decision on abortion access to the states.

The landmark Dobbs decision did not make abortion illegal nationally but rather found that abortion was not a right guaranteed by the Constitution.

“I put three great Supreme Court justices on the court and they happened to vote in favor of killing Roe v. Wade and moving it back to the states,” Trump said.

“This is something that everybody wanted.

“Now the states are working it out.”

Trump came in for criticism for claiming the decision was something “everyone wanted.”

Polls have consistently shown a majority of Americans want abortion to be legal in some aspect while differing as to how far into pregnancy it should be.

A Gallup survey last year found 61 percent of Americans think overturning Roe was a “bad thing.”

However, much of the corporate media reporting on the issue has sought to mislead the public about why the ruling was overturned and how it impacted abortions.

Trump said every state is “making their own decisions right now.”

“They’re all making their own decisions right now and right now the states control it,” Trump said.

“That’s the vote of the people.”

But Trump maintained that, like former President Ronald Reagan, he believes in “exceptions.”

“I believe in the exceptions,” Trump said.

“I am a person that believes, and frankly, I think it is important to believe in the exceptions.

“Some people, you have to follow your heart, some people don’t believe in that.

“But I believe in the exceptions for rape, incest, and the life of the mother.

“I think it’s very important.”

In defending his pro-abortion position during the debate, Democrat President Joe Biden argued that “a lot of young women are being raped” by “their sisters.”
