"This is following the Constitution, and giving rights back when they should have been given long ago," Trump told Fox News. "This brings everything back to the states where it has always belonged."
Asked what he thinks the reaction will be among his supporters who also favor abortion rights, Trump said, "I think, in the end, this is something that will work out for everybody."
Prior to Trump's term in office, the high court was ideologically evenly split, with Roberts usually serving as a swing vote.
When asked by Fox News whether he thinks he played a part in the Supreme Court overturning Roe vs. Wade on Thursday, Trump replied: "God made the decision."

"Now that Roe vs. Wade has been consigned to the ash heap of history, a new arena in the cause of life has emerged, and it is incumbent on all who cherish the sanctity of life to resolve that we will take the defense of the unborn and the support for women in crisis pregnancy centers to every state in America," he told conservative website Breitbart.
"Having been given this second chance for life, we must not rest and must not relent until the sanctity of life is restored to the center of American law in every state in the land."
