President Donald Trump said Thursday that he has no intention of shutting down Planned Parenthood, even if he has to take a personal stand on the issue.
“I don’t want to shut down Planned.
That’s the best way to get to a solution,” Trump told Fox News’ Sean Hannity.
“I mean, we’ve got to figure it out.
We can’t have the whole world just standing there watching and waiting and watching.
I mean, it’s so sad.
But at the same time, I don’t think we should be doing it, I think we ought to have a very good, very strong country.”
The president said that if he had to make a decision, he would likely choose to continue to fund Planned Parenthood.
“At the same point, you know, if I had to, you’ll have to decide, but if you want to do it, that’s fine with me.
You know, it would be a good thing to do, right?
I mean I have a great relationship with the people, the women, and I think I’ll do it,” he said.”
If you think that I’m going to say no to a deal that I can’t even imagine, I’m not going to do that,” Trump added.
“You know, you have to ask yourself, is that going to be good for our country?
We need good people in this country.
You can’t do it all on your own.
You have to have good people, right?”
