President Trump, who ran on getting tough on crime, is currently backing a Koch-ACLU proposal seeking to empty our nation's prisons.
This will go perfectly with the other Koch-ACLU proposal which recently passed in Florida to restore voting rights to an estimated 1.4 million felons (which may ensure Trump and Republicans lose Florida in 2020).
Trump is throwing his support behind legislation that could shorten sentences for some drug offenders and help prisoners adjust to life after incarceration.None of these programs have worked.
Trump himself has made being "tough on crime" a major part of his pitch to voters. In response to the opioid crisis, Trump even called for the death penalty for some drug dealers.Kanye pretty much pulled all his support for Republicans right before the midterms. He also gave a bunch of money to far-left Democrats.
Additionally, exit polls indicated Candace Owens' "Blexit" had no effect on the midterms.
I believe this is what some call "getting played," Mr. President.
Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and a top adviser, has been a driving force in the White House pushing for changes to the criminal justice system.Breitbart has more on the specifics of the bill:
As Breitbart News has reported, the prison reform plan will cut the penalty for drug traffickers in at least half. Current law mandates a prison sentence of at least 20 years for a repeat fentanyl drug trafficker. The First Step Act automatically reduces that sentence by five years and further cuts the penalty through a number of changes which result in a seven year, ten month prison time. This is less than half of the time that the drug trafficker would have served under current law.According to the Center for Immigration Studies, the bill will also make it harder for criminal illegal aliens to be deported.
Hopefully, this goes nowhere and is just another bluff like with DACA. Mitch McConnell has indicated it's going to be a challenge to pass.
The new acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker also reportedly spoke out against the bill to Trump:
