Republican New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu blasted Republicans pushing for a national abortion ban.

During a Thursday appearance on “The View,” co-host Joy Behar asked Sununu about abortion, which he said was one issue the two likely agree on.

The governor told "The View" co-hosts that abortion laws should be kept at a state level. Since the Supreme Court overturned the Roe v. Wade ruling, states have been free to adopt their own abortion restrictions. 

"Understand, this isn't a war that's going to be won by pro-life or pro-choice. Every state is going to be a little bit different,” Sununu said. 

He added that it's an issue that is affecting his party's success. “At the end of the day, any Republican talking about a national abortion ban is just screwing the party over altogether and I really mean that,” he said. 

“We don't trust you,” Behar responded. “We don't trust Republicans on this. They can go out there and say, 'I'm pro-choice,' and then when they get in, they're not. I don't believe. I don't trust them.”

“Well, look at me,” Sununu said. 

The governor has previously stated he’s looking at a possible run in 2024, which would pit him against former President Donald Trump, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, and others.
