The left cannot attack Trump over these remarks because they confronted Hillary over the bill during the 2016 election.
President Donald Trump went after former Vice President Joe Biden, the front runner in the 2020 Democratic primary, for his role in the 1994 Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act.
Biden wrote the bill when he served as a senator from Delaware and chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Trump may have a point because the law eventually fell out of favor with people on both sides since “critics said it caused prison populations to swell and resulted in the mass incarceration of African Americans on drug charges.”
You know what’s weird? Publications said the exact same thing about Hillary Clinton in 2016 since President Bill Clinton signed the bill into law.
The left cannot go after Trump for his remarks because The New York Times published an article in 2015 titled Joe Biden’s Role in ’90s Crime Law Could Haunt Any Presidential Bid and the author Nicholas Fandos wrote with the same sentiment as Trump’s tweets.
