Biden rebukes Trump over 'cruelty' of Florida's six-week abortion ban

TAMPA, Fla. - President Biden traveled to Florida on Tuesday to denounce that state's six-week abortion ban - just days before the law goes into effect - blaming former president Donald Trump for the erosion of reproductive rights across the country.

"There's one person who is responsible for this nightmare - and he's acknowledged and he's bragged about it," Biden told a crowd of several hundred at Hillsborough Community College. "It's Donald Trump."

Repeatedly bashing Trump by name, Biden took his message on "reproductive freedom" to a state where Democrats have lost ground in recent years but where they believe the abortion issue will galvanize voters. In his first major speech on abortion since Trump said the politically volatile question should be left to the states, Biden suggested he would return to the issue in the months ahead.
