Donald Trump: Scandals And Controversies

Tracking scandals and controversies involving former president Donald Trump, the Republican Party’s 2024 presidential nominee.


Trump Admitted That He “Broke” Roe vs. Wade. “Facing the press alongside the House speaker, fellow Republican Mike Johnson, Donald Trump bragged: “We broke Roe v Wade.” The former president made the stark admission about his dominant role in attacks on abortion rights at the end of a week in which the rightwing Arizona state supreme court ruled that an 1864 law imposing a near-total ban could go back into effect.” [Guardian]

Trump Said Getting Rid Of Roe vs. Wade Was An “Incredible Thing” And He Was “Honored” To Do It. “Getting rid of Roe v. Wade was an incredible thing for pro-life because it gave pro-life something to negotiate with. Pro-life had absolutely nothing, being stuck in Roe v. Wade, to negotiate with… And look, everybody that was president wanted to get rid and tried to get rid of Roe v. Wade… For fifty years, this has been going on. I was able to do it, and I was very honored to do it.” [Video]


Trump Refused To Release His 2023 Tax Returns. “It marks the 26th year that Biden has released federal tax returns during his public life. Former President Donald Trump, the Republican presumptive nominee, is again declining to release his latest federal tax returns after he broke from the bipartisan tradition of presidents disclosing the documents.” [USA Today]
