Nancy Sinatra, daughter of the late iconic singer Frank Sinatra, revealed on social media why she despises Americans who voted for President Donald Trump.
Here’s what she said
Sinatra was responding to a tweet from California Senator Kamala Harris (D), and explained that the possibility of overturning the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court case was why she despised Trump voters.
This is the one issue that makes me despise people who voted for @realDonaldTrump , especially the women. Either they didn't think things through or they are just ignorant. @HillaryClinton warned us but here we are, facing a disaster. I'm worried about future generations.

“This is the one issue that makes me despise people who voted for @realDonaldTrump , especially the women,” Sinatra tweeted. “Either they didn’t think things through or they are just ignorant.”
“[Hillary Clinton] warned us but here we are, facing a disaster,” she added. “I’m worried about future generations.”
“The days before Roe v. Wade”
Sinatra was commenting to Sen. Harris on her tweet recalling comments Trump made before the election about his Supreme Court nominees overturning the infamous case that cemented abortion rights in the United States.
“Trump was clear during the campaign about his list of potential SCOTUS nominees: ALL want to take away a woman’s constitutional right to make her own health care decisions,” Harris tweeted.
Trump was clear during the campaign about his list of potential SCOTUS nominees: ALL want to take away a woman’s constitutional right to make her own health care decisions. We cannot go back to the days before Roe v. Wade.

Why the debate over Roe v. Wade again?
The debate over abortion has come into the spotlight again after Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced he would be retiring, giving Trump an opportunity to replace the moderate swing-vote with a more reliable conservative justice.
Defenders of abortion rights have argued that in the decades since the decision, so many decisions have been made based on it that it has become enshrined in law through precedence and “super-precedence.”
Critics of the Roe v. Decision point to the shaky constitutional rationalizations made to support the decision, noting that even many on the left admit that it was poorly argued.
