All of the major people running for Trump’s job renewal including Trump himself have , or are there to speak at a forum on criminal justice at historically black Benedict College in Columbia. ….
Here’s the rundown….
Former Vice President Joe Biden, U.S. Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, and six other Democratic contenders will also present their criminal justice plans at the forum, which is being held at the historically black Benedict College in Columbia.
The weekend forum is aimed at tackling the next steps in criminal justice reforms after Trump last year signed bipartisan legislation that instituted a number of changes, including easing harsh minimum sentences for nonviolent drug offenders.
“I hope you will judge my administration based on the tremendous amount we have achieved,” Trump said in his keynote speech. Trump won just 8 percent of the black vote in 2016 and there are few indications that he has turned the tide since.
U.S. Senator Kamala Harris of California canceled her appearance at the forum and planned to speak elsewhere after Trump received an award at the event on Friday despite what she described as “decades of celebrating mass incarceration, pushing the death penalty for innocent Black Americans, rolling back police accountability measures and racist behavior that puts people’s lives at risk.”
