“Things are happening that haven’t happened in a very long time… Criminal Justice Reform. Everybody said it couldn’t be done. They said the conservatives won’t approve it, they said the liberals won’t approve it,” said the president.
“It’s been many, many years. Numerous decades and nobody came close. I want to thank all of the people standing behind me… This was incredible bipartisan support. Everybody worked so hard on this,” he added.
