Today, in a new interview with CBN News' David Brody, Trump explains the evolution of his thinking and how stories of pregnancies — including one in particular — helped change his mind on abortion.
"Evangelicals do want to feel secure that they’re going to have a nominee that's going to at least be solid on those issues, those social issues. Someone that's not just going to cut and move on," Brody said to Trump.
The billionaire responded, "One thing about me, I'm a very honorable guy. I'm pro-life, but I changed my view a number of years ago."
"One of the reasons I changed — one of the primary reasons — a friend of mine's wife was pregnant, in this case married. She was pregnant and he didn't really want the baby. And he was telling me the story," Trump told Brody. "He was crying as he was telling me the story. He ends up having the baby and the baby is the apple of his eye. It's the greatest thing that's ever happened to him. And you know here's a baby that wasn't going to be let into life. And I heard this, and some other stories, and I am pro-life."
"So those stories did change you, they came around and changed you?" Brody asked.
"They changed me. Yeah, they changed my view as to that, absolutely," Trump responded.
