The foetus seems to be the 'Young One' model - designed to represent a fetus at 11 to 14 weeks old in the womb - which were manufactured by Heritage House.
According to their official website, Heritage House claim that “We are committed to the sanctity of life at all stages and to the traditional values of the institution we call the family.”

Trump has held a very firm view on the topic of abortion, having previously claimed that women who had an abortion were deserving of some sort of punishment, before changing his statement to claim that the doctors who performed the abortions were who deserved the punishment.
