In what has now become a viral tweet, actor Isaiah Washington blasted Barack Obama and praised President Trump for his effort in the First Step act.
As reported by theconservativeopinion.com
Washington said he voted for Obama twice, pointing out that he had been politically active, but noted that “Not once, in 8 years, was I given any support regarding Africa or the Black Agenda, but [Trump] invites me to the [White House] to celebrate the First Step Act.”
I voted for 44 twice. I even checked my emails in his Senate Office while lobbying for Salone to be given another chance to rebrand. Not once in 8 years was I given any support regarding Africa or the Black Agenda, but 45 invites me to the WH to celebrate the #FirstStepAct 🤷🏾♂️

Throughout his time in the White House, President Trump has enthusiastically approached reforming the criminal justice system, and has met with African American rights activists towards overhauling a system that appears increasingly broken.
