Elon Musk With Immediate Response to Kamala Harris 'Lying' on X

Elon Musk criticized Vice President Kamala Harris for "lying" about Trump's stance on a national abortion ban.

Harris claimed on Musk's platform that "Donald Trump would ban abortion nationwide." She also said, "President @JoeBiden and I will do everything in our power to stop him and restore women's reproductive freedom."

Community Notes, a feature on Musk's site, responded to Harris' post. Users shared information from CNN, BBC, The Associated Press, The New York Times, and Trump’s Truth Social account contradicting Harris' statement.

Trump has said that abortion limits should be decided by the states. He recently reiterated this on Truth Social.

"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. And whatever they decide must be the law of the land — in this case, the law of the state," Trump stated.

An AP report fact-checking Harris had a straightforward headline: "Trump declines to endorse a national abortion ban. He says limits should be left to the states."

Musk called out Harris for "lying" on his social media platform.

"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 questioned about his stance on abortion and blocking 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 praised the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade in 2022, returning the decision on abortion to the states. The Dobbs decision did not make abortion illegal nationwide but rather stated that abortion is not a constitutional right.

"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. This is something that everybody wanted," Trump said. "Now the states are working it out."

Trump faced criticism for claiming the decision was what "everyone wanted." Polls show a majority of Americans want abortion to be legal in some form, though opinions vary on the specifics.

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

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."

However, Trump insisted he believes in "exceptions" like former President Ronald Reagan.

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