He added: “It makes no sense how anybody thinks it's their right to tell a woman what to do with her body. I just don't get it. To take away the ability to make informed decisions on how they want to live their lives, is bananas."

He added: “This is coming from somebody who is consistently like, the US is the best country in the world by a mile. I still believe it. But we're going backwards."
