Chris Matthews: “Do you believe in punishment for abortion, yes or no, as a principle?”

Donald Trump: “The answer is that there has to be some form of punishment.”

Chris Matthews: “For the woman?”

Donald Trump: “Yeah, there has to be some form.”

Chris Matthews: “Ten cents? Ten years? What?”

Donald Trump: “Let me just tell you—I don’t know. That I don’t know. That I don’t know.”

Chris Matthews: “Why not?”

Donald Trump: “I don’t know.”

Chris Matthews: “You take positions on everything else.”

Donald Trump: “Because I don’t want to—I—frankly, I do take positions on everything else. It’s a very complicated position.”
