Donald Trump rips Joe Biden over 1994 crime bill

Dave Boyer The Washington TimesMay 27, 2019

President Trump accused former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Monday of ushering in a “dark period in American history” with the 1994 crime bill that rival Democrats blame for mass incarcerations.

“Super Predator was the term associated with the 1994 Crime Bill that Sleepy Joe Biden was so heavily involved in passing,” the president tweeted. “That was a dark period in American History, but has Sleepy Joe apologized? No!”

Mr. Trump predicted that “Anyone associated with the 1994 Crime Bill will not have a chance of being elected” president in 2020.

“In particular, African Americans will not be [a]ble to vote for you,” Mr. Trump said. “I, on the other hand, was responsible for Criminal Justice Reform, which had tremendous support, and helped fix the bad 1994 Bill!”
