Trump Lists His Accomplishments for Blacks; Biden Put Them In Jail with 1994 Crime Bill


Democrats and their allies in the media like to call President Trump "racist."

However, during the Presidential debate, President Trump listed his accomplishments for the Black community.

These accomplishments include:

… the lowest unemployment rate on record (prior to COVID-19).

… funding for historically Black communities.

… opportunity zones.

And much more!

But what has Joe Biden done specifically in regards to the black community?

He crafted and passed the 1994 crime bill.

See Trump's epic takedown below:

In fact, Hillary Clinton supported Joe Biden's crime bill.

Do you know what she called Black criminals?


Don't take our word for it.

See Hillary Clinton talking about Joe Biden's 1994 crime bill below!

Joe Biden is supposed to be good for minorities.

But ABC reports that both Democrats and Republicans have attacked Biden's 1994 crime bill:

Earlier this month, standing in the rain before a crowd of Granite State voters at a house party in Nashua, New Hampshire, former Vice President Joe Biden defended his role in a signature piece of legislation he shepherded through Congress more than two decades ago -- a sweeping, bipartisan 1994 crime bill that has turned into a looming hurdle in his presidential bid -- and a target for President Donald Trump.

The key complaint Trump has seized on -- voiced by African American critics and some of Biden's 2020 Democratic rivals -- is that the measure led to mass incarceration of blacks, especially young men.

In fact, across the country the incarceration rates in the years leading up to the passage of the 1994 crime bill had already begun to see a steep rise beginning in the early 1980s, according to the Sentencing Project and data from the federal Bureau of Justice Statistics.

Still, it's a claim Biden has already attempted to debunk on the campaign trail.

"Folks, let’s get something straight," he told the crowd in Nashua on May 14. "This idea that the crime bill generated mass incarceration, it did not generate mass incarceration."

This latest flash point in the Democratic presidential race, formally known as the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, was signed by President Bill Clinton in 1994 and was a comprehensive response to the country's rising violent crime rate.

Provisions in the law included paying for new federal prisons if states agreed to force offenders to serve 85% of their sentence as opposed to allowing them out early on parole; providing tens of billions of dollars to put 100,000 more police officers on the streets by paying for two-thirds of the new officers' salaries in participating cities; instituting a federal "three strikes" rule, which mandated harsher sentences up to life in prison for defendants who had committed a third felony after being convicted in state or federal court of two previous felonies -- at least one of which was serious or violent; and funding crime prevention programs. Other notable components included: an assault weapons ban, the removal of education grants for inmates, and the Violence Against Women Act.

The “three strikes” rule -- implemented in varying degrees by states as well, California being the harshest -- was among the most controversial aspects of the law because it mandated lengthy prison terms even for less serious crimes if the defendant was a repeat offender.

The former Delaware senator has said that while he "had to accept" President Clinton's "three strikes" rule, mass incarceration was a result of "states setting mandatory sentences."

But Biden's pivotal role in getting the bill passed, as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, is facing new scrutiny.

"Anyone associated with the 1994 crime bill will not have a chance of being elected," Trump tweeted Tuesday morning. "In particular, African Americans will not be able to vote for you. I, on the other hand, was responsible for Criminal Justice Reform, which had tremendous support, and helped fix the bad 1994 Bill!"

"Super Predator was the term associated with the 1994 Crime Bill that Sleepy Joe Biden was so heavily involved in passing. That was a dark period in American History, but has Sleepy Joe apologized? No," he said in another tweet, although it was then-first lady Hillary Clinton in 1994, not Biden, who used the term "superpredator" in support of the law.

The media has always tried to cover for Joe Biden.

But tonight, President Trump spoke straight to the American people.

He delivered on substance and truth.

Many voters tonight heard facts that they've never heard from the mainstream media.

The moment continues to go with President Trump!
