During a segment on race in America, Trump hammered former Vice President Joe Biden for failing to get anything substantive done for the black community during his 47 years in politics, blasting his 1994 crime bill, specifically.
"Nobody has done more for the black community than Donald Trump. And if you look, with the exception of Abraham Lincoln — possible exception, but the exception of Abraham Lincoln, nobody has done what I've done," Trump said, citing his strides in criminal justice reform, prison reform, opportunity zones, and historically black colleges and universities.
