President Trump is pressing for prison reform while his administration privately works on an agreement with Congress that would overhaul a bigger swath of the criminal justice system but may rile tough-on-crime conservatives,the Washington Post reports. Trump hosted a roundtable Thursday with governors, state attorneys general and Cabinet officials on prison reform during his 11-day working vacation at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J. It’s the second week in a row in which Trump has held meetings on the issue. The administration and members of Congress are crafting an agreement that would add significant changes in mandatory sentencing laws to a widely popular prison reform bill that passed the House earlier this year.
