President Donald Trump on Monday interrupted his Tokyo trip on Saturday to make bold pronouncements about how African Americans vote.

“In particular, African Americans will not be ble (sic) to vote for you,” Trump claimed.

“I, on the other hand, was responsible for Criminal Justice Reform, which had tremendous support, and helped fix the bad 1994 bill,” he argued.
