The Donald told radio host Hugh Hewitt he’d support a government shutdown to stop a Planned Parenthood filibuster.

Trump was asked to give his thoughts on the Senate’s vote on Monday to defund Planned Parenthood. Trump began by denouncing the controversial videos as “disgusting,” but after Hewitt asked him whether shutting down the government was the only way to get past a filibuster to the defining movement, Trump said he would support that.

Trump elaborated by pointing to Ted Cruz‘s 2013 movement to shut down the government in order to halt the Affordable Care Act.

“If the Republicans stuck together, you could’ve done it with Obamacare also, but the Republicans decided not to,” Trump told The Hugh Hewitt Show. He continued to deride Republicans by saying that they would have won more political battles if they had doubled down on the issues in a manner similar to Cruz.
