President Donald Trump said Wednesday the uproar over a 40-week abortion proposal in Virginia will end up helping the pro-life movement.

Earlier this week, Democratic Virginia Delegate Kathy Tran presented a bill to the chamber that called for, among other things, women having the legal right to abort a baby up until and even after birth. The proposal was ultimately shot down, but Gov. Ralph Northam, also a Democrat, said Wednesday the issue was "blown out of proportion."

Trump told The Daily Caller he was shocked by Northam's words.

"I'm surprised that he did that, I've met him a number of times," Trump said.

"I thought it was terrible," he said of Tran's remarks. "Do you remember when I said Hillary Clinton was willing to rip the baby out of the womb? That's what it is, that's what they're doing, it's terrible."

Trump added that the pro-life movement will receive a boost because of the controversial statements.

"This is going to lift up the whole pro-life movement like maybe it's never been lifted up before," he said. "The pro-life movement is very much a 50-50, it's a very 50-50 issue, actually it's gained a point or two over the years."
