Republican presidential candidate Ron DeSantis slammed a partisan reporter during an interview that aired on Monday over remarks that she made about the Democratic Party’s stance on abortion.

When asked by NBC News reporter Dasha Burns if he would veto any federal bill that would institute a nationwide ban on abortion, DeSantis said that he would be a pro-life president and would support pro-life policies.

“I would not allow what a lot of the Left wants to do, which is to override pro-life protections throughout the country all the way up really until the moment of birth in some instances, which I think is infanticide,” DeSantis said.

Burns quickly pushed back while looking down at her notes. “I’ve gotta push back on you on that,” Burns interrupted, “because that’s a misrepresentation of what’s happening. I mean, that 1.3% of abortions happen at 21 weeks [of pregnancy] or higher.”

“There’s no evidence of Democrats pushing for abortions up until—” she continued.

“But their view is is that all the way up until that, there should not be any legal protections,” DeSantis noted.

“There’s no indication of Democrats pushing for that,” Burns claimed.

DeSantis pushed back noting areas of the country where Democrats have pursued exactly that agenda to which Burns again defended the Democratic Party claiming that it was not true.

“The Left in this country has moved on from the position that said, ‘you know what, we do want to discourage abortion, it’s not something that’s a good thing,’ to now viewing it more as positive good for society and I think most Americans, regardless of how they feel on legal protections, I don’t think most Americans think it’s a positive good for society.”

“It’s obviously a tragic circumstance,” he added.
