Van Jones is crafting law enforcement policy for the Trump White House.
CNN commentator Van Jones, who was once run from the Obama administration due to his communist ties, has been revealed as the man largely responsible for crafting President Donald Trump’s police reform executive order.
Jones is under heavy fire from left-wing media outlets for being willing to work with the Trump administration. The Daily Beast published an article bashing Jones for helping to “secretly craft the weak Trump police reform he praised on TV.”
They reported: “Jones and California human rights attorney Jessica Jackson, who runs #cut50, a prison-reform group that Jones also founded, actively participated with law enforcement officials and White House staffers to help fashion the order and guide the politics of the discussion to what they considered “the sweet spot” between law enforcement and “the reasonable middle” and “the reasonable left.”’
Jones has become a major influence on the Trump administration because of Trump son-in-law and senior advisor Jared Kushner. Kushner is a huge admirer of Jones, and has rolled out the red carpet for the communist to determine law enforcement policy for the White House.
“He was someone I’d seen on television, so I was deeply skeptical,” Kushner said to The Daily Beast. “But I said I’d be happy to speak to him, and we had a good chat. And then we just started working together. And what I saw, with him, was that he had a lot of courage, when other people play politics.”
“I find that in politics, people get in uncomfortable situations, and that’s when you get to see what a person’s character really is,” Kushner added. “And in a tough situation Van has shown me that he’s got true character. He’s focused on the right things.”
Kushner has pushed for Trump to abandon being the law-and-order President so he could let criminals out of jail instead to placate the Left. Placating the Left has not worked for the administration, as riots now lay waste to cities all over the country.
Big League Politics reported earlier this month on the Trump police reform order that could potentially take away $1.5 billion in federal grant money from law enforcement agencies that resist coercive reform mandates:
Although President Trump likes to pay lip service to “law and order,” it seems his administration is caving to the Black Lives Matter crowd demanding for law enforcement agencies to be restructured.
An executive order signed into existence by President Trump on Tuesday will block up to $1.5 billion in federal grant money for police agencies that refuse to institute reform. The White House is putting their own spin on de-funding the police with this proposal.
The order sets up a federalized credentialing and certification program of sorts, forms a national database that tracks cops and their use-of-force complaints, and creates co-responder programs that would hamstring cops during supposedly non-violent police calls. The certification program and national misconduct database will be tied to grant money issued by the DOJ’s Office of Justice (OJP).
If police agencies refuse to go along with the charade of national reform, they could lose up to $1.511 billion in grant money. This is how the White House plans to coerce law enforcement to go along with reforms endorsed by far-left social justice warriors…
Trump even met with attorney Lee Merritt, the race huckster who has maintained throughout Trump’s presidency that he is a racist white supremacist who hates black people.
Trump is straying from his mandate by collaborating with marxists like Jones, and it may cost him re-election in November.
