“What if some animals with tattoos raped your daughter and she got pregnant?” What Trump said to British Prime Minister Theresa May – who revealed she can’t have children – when they first met and discussed abortion

  • Trump made the remark during his first meeting with May, NY Times reports Maggie Haberman in new book Confidence Man
  • Trump noted that ‘some people are pro-life, some people are pro-choice’
  • Then he reportedly asked, “Imagine some animals with tattoos raped your daughter and she got pregnant?”
  • He also called Vice President Mike Pence a “tough one” on abortion
  • He was quick to bring up a wind farm he wanted to block near the Scottish golf course

Former President Donald Trump raised the indicted abortion issue during his first meeting with former British Prime Minister Theresa May — according to a new book about the “rape” of a hypothetical daughter.

The incident believed to have happened in 2017 when May came to Washington as the first world leader to meet Trump in another demonstration of the “special relationship” between the two countries.

At one point, Trump, who took office after making a slew of controversial comments on the campaign trail, remarked to the British Prime Minister: “Some people are pro-life, some people are pro-choice,” according to new book Confidence Man by Maggie Haberman of the New York Times.

“What if some animals with tattoos raped your daughter and she got pregnant?” Trump reportedly asked her, according to an account in the Washington Post.

He went on to point to his vice president, Mike Pence, who had long enjoyed evangelical support for his conservative views. He called Pence a “difficult one” on abortion.

As president, Trump was able to install pro-life judges throughout the federal judiciary, with the 6-3 Supreme Court majority he helped defeat Roe v. Wade last summer after he left office.

Trump’s reported comment on the emotional issue came despite May’s speaking publicly later that year about the pain of her and husband Philip May’s inability to conceive a child.

‘It has been very sad. It just turned out not to be possible for us,” she said LBC Radio in May 2017.

May herself expressed her support for a woman’s access to “safe, legal abortion” in 2018.

As the conversation continued, “he quickly shifted the topic from Northern Ireland to an offshore wind project he wanted to block near his property,” according to the Post. That was a reference to Trump’s ongoing dispute with the local government over wind farms within sight of his Scottish golf course.

Trump was ordered to Pay $290,000 to the Scottish government after a legal battle over the issue. He has also long been publicly critical of wind farms, emphasizing their appearance and threat to birds.
