After months of uproar from figures across the political spectrum – spearheaded largely by the right, Matthew Charles, a non-violent drug offender is expected to freed from prison in the next 24 hours.
This massive development comes because of President Donald Trump’s First Step Act, which gives some non-violent offenders the possibility of reduced sentences.
Charles had spent over twenty years in prison when he was given early in release on 2016. After being released, he integrated back into society, found steady work and a girlfriend.
But his 2016 release was due to a mistake. You see, Charles was labeled as a career offender, meaning there was no option for him to have his sentence reduced.
So despite serving as a model citizen for two years, he was forced back into prison last year.
Following this news, many figures on the right came out in support of Charles, urging President Trump to pardon him.
While that pardon isn’t coming, Charles’ release is. And it’s due to the policies of President Trump.
This isn’t the first act of compassion Trump has given to non-violent offenders.
In June of last year, the president granted a pardon to yet another non-violent drug offender, Alice Marie Johnson.
Johnson, a great grandmother who got caught up in the drug trade while facing difficult times, was granted the pardon following a meeting between the president and Kim Kardashian West. Kardashian West is a vocal advocate for criminal justice report, and along with her husband, Kanye West, is believed to be a strong influence on the president’s views on the issue.
Karadashian West took to Twitter to thank Trump for his role in helping Charles get his freedom back.
Just got word that Matthew Charles will be coming home within 24 hours. Thank you @realDonaldTrump for signing the 1st step act. This is what true bipartisanship can accomplish. https://t.co/9EnwDSksfw

President Donald Trump Pledges “Orderly Transition” on January 20th
“The greatest first term in Presidential history.”
President Donald Trump pledged an orderly transition of power in a statement released early Thursday morning, appearing to recognize that Democrat Joe Biden would be sworn in as President in January.
“Even though I totally disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts bear me out, nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on January 20th. I have always said we would continue our fight to ensure that only legal votes were counted. While this represents the end of the greatest first term in presidential history, it’s only the beginning of our fight to Make America Great Again!”
The President’s announcement came minutes after the Senate certified electoral college slates voting for Joe Biden’s history. Vice President Mike Pence recognized Biden as the winner with 306 electoral college votes.
Twitter had temporarily silenced President Trump’s personal Twitter in the wake of a protest outside of the Capitol in which demonstrators entered. the halls of Congress. Longtime Trump aide Dan Scavino released the statement just before 4AM.
The recognition of a transition now heralds the end of President Donald Trump’s first term, with the President alluding to the possibility of securing the second term he was denied in his statement in a future campaign. Joe Biden will be inaugurated as President.
