Joe Biden defended what many critics claim is a blight on his record of working with the black community.

“Other things increased mass incarceration,” the presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential candidate told The Breakfast Club in a pre-taped interview aired Friday.

The article goes on to state the following:

Biden told host Charlamagne Tha God, Hillary Clinton was “wrong” to apologize for her and husband former President Bill Clinton’s role in pushing for the 1994 Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, better known as the “crime bill.”

“She was wrong. What happened was — that wasn’t the crime bill, it was the drug legislation. It was their institution of mandatory minimums, which I opposed,” Biden said.
