Trump Has Undermined Everything RBG Stood For
September 24, 2020
While Trump paid his respects to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg today, his record has disrespected everything that she stood and fought for as a justice.
RBG championed women’s rights while Trump has rolled back workplace protections, including equal pay, and wants to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Q: “Do you want to see the court overturn Roe v. Wade?” TRUMP: “Well, if we put another two or perhaps three justices on, that’s really what’s going to be — that will happen and that will happen automatically in my opinion because I am putting pro-life justices on the court.”
RBG stood up for voting rights while Trump has consistently pushed for and even admitted to voter suppression.
