Graham on POTUS Visit to Benedict College

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement after joining President Trump at a criminal justice forum at Benedict College in Columbia, SC.

“It’s my belief that President Trump delivered the best domestic policy speech of his presidency today as he talked about the impact criminal justice reform, combined with a strong economy, can have on America.

“Under his leadership, we were able to bring about the biggest change in criminal justice in decades.  Today, non-violent offenders are being given the chance to go from prison, to a job, to an opportunity to build a better life for themselves and their families.

“As President Trump noted, South Carolina is proud of Benedict College’s legacy and bright future.  We also recognize the fact that Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) across South Carolina are a state treasure.  They play an important role in higher education and have uplifted countless generations.

“Finally, I appreciate President Trump taking the time to visit Benedict College and deliver an uplifting message of hope and opportunity for all Americans.”
