The Trump campaign has announced that the GOP presidential candidate will deliver a major speech in historic Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, on Saturday, October 22. Donald Trump will present his "closing arguments for American voters," outlining the steps he will take in his first 100 days to make America great again.
I hope it's his best speech yet. For all his gaffes and misstatements, the fact is this: The race is not over until it's over. (Even when he means it's over.) So, as Trump heads into his Gettysburg address, I want to emphasize what he should replay from last week's debate, and what he needs to emphasize more.
I'll begin with where Trump shined in Las Vegas: His support of a ban on late-term partial-birth abortion was a heaven-sent gift from God.
Trump's opposition to abortion, in general, is a wonderful thing. So is his pledge to nominate pro-life judges, and his related idea that if pro-life judges overturn Roe v. Wade, that's fine. Send abortion back to the states where it started.
So I sincerely hope that in Gettysburg, just as President Lincoln defended the ending of slavery, Trump continues to defend the life of the unborn.
And I hope he contrasts his position with that of Democratic challengerHillary Clinton, who would permit abortions even in the ninth month — an un-American, unethical stance that is meant to curry favor with left-wing women's groups.
