Trump Hits Carson’s Abortion ‘Contradiction’

Donald Trump early Tuesday attacked a surging Ben Carson on abortion, suggesting the retired neurosurgeon has “an unusual stance” on the divisive topic.

“You look at different things having to do with Ben and there’s a lot of contradiction,” Trump said during a phone interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

“Ben, he was pro-abortion not so long ago, as everybody has told me,” Trump said. “And all of a sudden he’s so hard on abortion, under no circumstances, virtually.

“That’s an unusual stance,” said Trump, who has said he is in favor of abortion exceptions in cases of rape, incest or when the life of the mother is at risk.
