Amid the George Floyd riots, Trump attacked Joe Biden for his support for the 1994 crime bill and touted his own better record on criminal justice reform. Yet on Thursday, Trump flipped the script on Biden with one simple tweet.
“Sleepy Joe Biden’s 1994 Crime Bill was a total disaster. 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,” the president tweeted. “Biden can never escape his Crime Bill!”

That’s nice. Except he said as recently as 3 weeks ago he regrets nothing and actually criticized Hillary for apologizing for it. https://t.co/ZSVZqXw4vE— Matthew Hilliard (@matthilliard) June 6, 2020
