*President Donald Trump reportedly regrets acting on the advice of son-in-law Jared Kushner with passing criminal justice reform.

White House insiders have spilled to Axios that Trump feels the First Step Act, which he signed in December 2018, has hurt him politically.

Trump and his rabid band of Black conservatives like to point to the bill anytime the president is accused of being racist. Back conservatives also like telling the lie that Black employment under this administration has been the best it’s ever been in the history of Negrodom. 

As it turns out, Trump, who was never very enthusiastic about the bill, believes he needs to support law enforcement and reject police reform to successfully win re-election. 

One source described his stance as  “No more of Jared’s woke s***”

Trump most recently tweeted about a ‘Black Lives Matter’ mural to be painted on New York’s Fifth Ave. calling it a ‘symbol of hate’

Meanwhile, white supremacist and those who produly proclaim “WHITE POWER!” are “very fine people,” according to Trump. 

Here’s more from the Axios report:

  • Trump dipped his toe into police reform under pressure after a Minneapolis police officer killed George Floyd — with an executive order that activists considered toothless — but he will likely go no further to restrain law enforcement officers, according to senior administration officials.
  • Trump has made clear he wants to support law enforcement unequivocally, and he won’t do anything that could be seen as undercutting police.
  • Several conservative allies of the president have reached out to him and advised him to reduce Kushner’s influence over his re-election campaign.

In response to this reporting, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said in a statement, “President Trump is very proud of the historic work that he’s done to benefit all communities. The First Step Act made historic strides toward rectifying racial disparities in sentencing while his executive order to secure America’s streets works with our nation’s heroic police officers to ensure we have safe policing and safe communities.”
