Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham celebrated the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe. V. Wade, and said former President Donald Trump deserves credit for the landmark decision.
“President Trump deserves the lion’s share of credit here. He fought like a tiger to put three constitutional conservative judges on the court. He stood behind Kavanaugh and all of us who’ve been working for the last 50 years to get this right to have a constitutional reset,” Graham said on “Fox News Sunday.”
“Friday was a glorious day,” Graham added.
Trump successfully nominated three candidates to serve on the Supreme Court during his tenure as president, giving the court a conservative majority. The court voted 6-3 to overturn Roe v. Wade on Friday, which effectively ended the recognition of abortion as a constitutional right.

Graham drew a parallel on “Fox News Sunday” between Justice Clarence Thomas’ contentious Supreme Court nomination and Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s, saying the Republican presidents during both hearings stood by their candidates.
“I really respect Clarence Thomas. They tried to destroy him. Remember his confirmation process? They tried to destroy Kavanaugh. Bush 41 stood by Clarence Thomas, President Trump stood by Kavanaugh and here we are today,” Graham said.
