Trump backs 1st major rewrite of sentencing laws in decades


November 15, 2018

Trump said the bill "will make our communities safer and give former inmates a second chance at life after they have served their time." Trump hailed the deal as proof that "true bipartisanship is possible" — though no Democrats attended the White House announcement.
