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

"Anyone associated with the 1994 Crime Bill will not have a chance of being elected," Trump argued.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, who authored the legislation, and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) are the only declared presidential candidates to have been associated with the bill.

"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.

"Super Predator was the term associated with the 1994 Crime Bill that Sleepy Joe Biden was so heavily involved in passing. That was a dark period in American History, but has Sleepy Joe apologized? No," Trump added.
