Former Vice President Joe Biden continues to hold double-digit leads over his Democratic counterparts looking to grab the Democratic nomination in the 2020 presidential election.
And predictably, the liberal media has spun this into Biden easily taking down President Trump in 2020.
But here’s what they aren’t reporting… some of the country’s top liberal activist groups want nothing to do with Biden.
In fact, they are actually AGREEING with President Trump that Joe Biden is BAD news for America.
And it all stems from Biden’s 1994 actions as a Senator.
According to a report from The Daily Caller, Trump attacked Biden on Twitter Monday with a critique that liberal outlets have been using for YEARS.
“Anyone associated with the 1994 Crime Bill will not have a chance of being elected. In particular, African Americans will not be [a]ble 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 wrote on Twitter Monday.
“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 continued.
Biden warned of “predators on our streets” who were “beyond the pale” in a 1993 speech on the justice system, reported CNN. The “Super Predator” term Trump mentioned was said by then-First Lady Hillary Clinton in 1996. The term was viewed as racially charged and Clinton called it “a poor choice of words” when pressed during a Democratic presidential debate in 2016.
And to this day, Democrats have not forgot about Biden’s actions and choice of words… both of which could cost him ANY chance of becoming president.
Biden, who became Senate Judiciary Committee chair in 1987, focused on crime-slashing legislation in the 1980s and 1990s. His critics maintain he did more harm than good, and his many years of lawmaking may hamstring him with Democratic voters who resent his harsh drug and crime legislation and connect it to today’s devastating opioid crisis.
Trump pointed to his bipartisan work on criminal justice reform in his critique of Biden.
Trump signed the First Step Act, which gives judges more leeway when sentencing drug offenders and offers more opportunities for prison rehab programs, on Dec. 21, 2018. Even CNN host and criminal justice reform advocate Van Jones could not help but praise Trump when it passed the Senate, calling the president the “loudest champion on criminal justice.”
Heck, even on of Trump’s biggest enemies is trashing Biden.
“That crime bill was one of the foundations of mass incarceration and a very painful era in our nation’s history,” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday. “[Biden] and anyone else has to be accountable for every vote they take and what’s on their record. And I think that was a huge mistake.”
