Has the time finally come for American celebrities to wake up and realize that Trump is doing more for our country than any other modern president has – particularly than Obama ever did for our great nation?
Perhaps so. At least, Isaiah Washington sees the truth.
After the First Step Act, a measure to help reform the criminal justice system and rehabilitate prisoners, was passed under President Trump, Washington took to Twitter to voice his thanks to Trump for inviting him to the White House, which Obama never did.
He documented his trip to the White House with videos, also posted to his Twitter.

Fox News commented on Washington's appreciation of Trump:
Washington tweeted on Monday his praise for Trump and the passing of the First Step Act, which is dedicated to criminal justice reform and prisoner rehabilitation. The actor was invited to D.C. to celebrate the legislation and hear calls for more reform, which he says Trump's predecessor never did.
“I voted for 44 twice. I even checked my emails in his Senate Office while lobbying for Salone to be given another chance to rebrand,” the former “Grey’s Anatomy” star wrote. “Not once in 8 years was I given any support regarding Africa or the Black Agenda, but 45 invites me to the WH to celebrate the #FirstStepAct.”
The First Step Act, which was passed by Congress last year, gives judges more discretion when sentencing some drug offenders and boosts prisoner rehabilitation efforts. The effort drew strong support from Republicans and Democrats, as both sides have expressed worry that mandatory minimum laws have generated unfair sentences in many drug-related cases.
