Joe Biden is the most likely Democrat to challenge President Trump in 2020.
He is dominating in the polls.
But Trump just turned his life upside down with just one brutal tweet.
The only recent accomplishment from Joe Biden is serving as Vice President under Barack Obama.
Beyond that, there is little he is known for, beyond his biggest Senate achievement in 1994.
In 1994, it was Joe Biden who wrote the now-infamous Crime Bill.
The bill includes some of the most extreme gun control ever to pass in U.S. history, along with prison reforms that have resulted in mass incarceration.
It goes far beyond standard “law and order” politics and has resulted in more harm in low-income communities than any other piece of legislation in history.
That’s why President Trump is putting him on blast for it, stating that “African Americans will not be able to vote for” anybody associated with the 1994 Crime Bill.
“Anyone associated with the 1994 Crime Bill will not have a chance of being elected. 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!” Trump tweeted on Monday.
He goes on to directly attack Joe Biden, and Hillary Clinton, who defended the 1994 bill her husband signed by calling black people “super predators.”
“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!”
Trump is zeroing in on his campaign messaging for 2020.
He is working towards gains in the African American community.
In 2016, he did better with black voters than Mitt Romney did in 2012 running against Barack Obama.
And with the passage of his First Step Act, he is likely to do better than last time.
Trump is doing more to help the African American Community than any President in history.
Instead of giving them handouts, or locking them up, he is giving them opportunities and second chances.
Black unemployment is at its lowest rate in U.S. history.
And with his First Step Act, non-violent drug offenders, who are disproportionately black, are being given second chances that no other President would grant them.
During his most recent State of the Union, the first person given freedom under the First Step Act was in attendance.
After spending over 20 years in prison, Matthew Charles was freed in 2016, but shortly after put back in prison as his initial release was a clerical mistake.
During his short stint of freedom, he held a steady job and became a productive member of his community.
President Trump put in the footwork to ensure that Charles, who had already proven he is rehabilitated, could get out again.
His release came on the first of this year and was a huge moment for the African American community.
Do you think the African American community should vote for President Trump?
