Trump Takes One More Swing at Biden in Japan

President Trump may have been in Japan negotiating trade deals this weekend with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, but the 2020 election - and one opponent in particular - was on his mind. Former Vice President Joe Biden is enjoying frontrunner status among the 2020 Democrats, and with the territory comes the fiercest attack lines. Trump joined Biden's liberal opponents in criticizing the latter's 1994 crime bill and charging that it led to "mass incarceration" in minority communities. It was, Trump said, a "dark period" in American history.

Trump can claim some justification for the attack because he's not just complaining about the need for prison reform - he's providing alternatives. His administration recently passed the First Step Act in a sweeping effort to reduce recidivism rates. He also gave 63-year-old great grandmother Alice Johnson a second chance in life after commuting her life sentence for a first time drug offense.

While abroad, Trump also questioned Biden's coherence and intelligence. Biden, he tweeted, "is probably a low-IQ individual."
