QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Van Jones praises Trump’s leadership on criminal justice reform

Noted liberal commentator Van Jones is over-the-moon excited about passage of the bipartisan criminal justice reform act, the First Step Act, which has fans and supporters on both sides of the aisle.
President Trump signed the bill into law on Friday afternoon and Van Jones had lots of effusive praise for the president and his leadership, saying:

“Jared Kushner’s father went to prison and Jared understands what people are going through and he decided to fight. And a lot of people got mad at me because I said I’m willing to work with him on that issue…they said it would never happen, Trump’s going to sell you down the river, nobody’s going to cooperate and it was the opposite…This bill is going to help a lot of people.”
