Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said he regrets supporting the 1994 crime bill at Thursday’s town hall.
Biden struck a regretful tone about his record of supporting a piece of stronger crime legislation in the 1990s, which the Trump campaign has used to attack him.
“An awful lot of people were jailed for minor drug crimes,” ABC News’s George Stephanopoulos began. “Was it a mistake to support it?”
“Yes, it was,” Biden said. “But here’s where the mistake came. The mistake came in terms of what the states did locally.”
