Trump taunts Biden on 1994 crime bill, black incarcerations

by Dom Calicchio | Fox News  |  Published on June 5, 2020

President Trump took an opportunity Thursday night to remind voters of Joe Biden’s support for a controversial 1994 crime bill that many critics blame for high levels of incarceration among African-Americans.

The president’s Twitter message came the same night that Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee for president, held a video town hall with Hollywood star Don Cheadle that was aimed at African-American voters.

“Sleepy Joe Biden’s 1994 Crime Bill was a total disaster,” Trump wrote. “It was mass incarceration for Black people, many of them innocent. I did Criminal Justice Reform, something Obama & Biden didn’t even try to do – & couldn’t do even if they did try. Biden can never escape his Crime Bill.”

Even Biden’s fellow Democrats have criticized the former vice president over his crime bill, which was signed into law by former President Bill Clinton.
