Former President Donald Trump held a rally in Quincy, Illinois, on Saturday night and it didn’t take long for him to ignite the crowd.
The 45th president was stumping for Rep. Mary Miller in an Illinois congressional primary against fellow House Republican Rep. Rodney Davis.
Trump has endorsed Miller leading up to Tuesday’s primary, which she said was “huge” for her campaign.
“I’m an America first supporter. I’ve been with him from the very beginning” and noted that “it’s an America first district. I’ve got a lot of grassroots support, and the Trump rally’s just building momentum,” Miller said.
When Trump got on stage, the crowd erupted after he mentioned Roe v Wade being overturned by the Supreme Court.
“This is following the Constitution, and giving rights back when they should have been given long ago,” Trump said following the ruling. “I think, in the end, this is something that will work out for everybody.”
On Friday, the U.S. Supreme Court officially released its decision in the highly-anticipated case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
The nation’s highest court has voted 6-3 in favor of overturning Roe v Wade, the landmark case that legalized abortion.
“The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives,” a syllabus of the opinion said.
Justice Samuel Alito, as expected, wrote the majority opinion that tossed out Roe. He was joined in that judgment by the five other conservatives on the high court, including Chief Justice John Roberts.
The court’s three liberal justices filed a dissenting opinion to the ruling.
