Donald Trump To Attend March for Life in Washington — Would Be First-Ever President

Printed from:

President Donald Trump plans to become the first president to address the March for Life in Washington D.C. in person on Friday.

Trump announced via Twitter on Wednesday night that he plans to attend the rally on the Washington Mall before the march.

Trump has addressed the rally by video hookup in the past, as have some other Republican presidents. But to date Vice President Mike Pence is the highest-ranking federal official to attend.

The March for Life typically draws several hundred thousand people.

It commemorates the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion nationwide.

Mainstream media reports typically downplay the march, but Trump’s expected presence may draw unprecedented national coverage.

Trump has proven the most committed anti-abortion president in history.
