President Donald Trump’s overall record of achievement for minorities is one any third year president would want to claim.
So says CBS reporter Major Garrett during a roundtable discussion over the weekend.
Garrett cited several other steps taken by the administration toward criminal justice reform and noted that the Opportunity Zones created in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act benefited communities of color as well.
“That is a legacy on the agenda side that almost any president after three years would want to claim, particularly President Obama,” Garrett concluded. “Many of those things were sought, but you know what, Republicans would not go for it. Quietly, persistently, President Trump has pushed Republicans in this direction and I think that’s an under-covered story.”
