President Donald Trump declares that he wants the death penalty for drug dealers.
The President praised the efforts of other countries for imposing the death penalty or life in prison for drug dealers on Saturday, and said he wants the same for the U.S. He thinks it’s time for the idea to be considered, at the very least. He added: “I think it’s a discussion we have to start thinking about. I don’t know if we’re ready- I don’t know if this country’s ready for it.”
Trump issued the statement during a campaign rally for Republican congressional candidate Rick Saccone.
To further his argument, Trump drew a comparison between those who get the death penalty for shootings and stabbings of “just one person “compared to the thousands of fatalities of drugs.
Trump said: “Someone can kill 5,000 people with drugs because you are smuggling them in and you’re making a lot of money and people are dying.” He emphasized that those involved in drug dealing go “without serious punishment.”
The President also believes in the urgency of the drug problem, and the even more pressing need to act about it effectively now. He said: “That’s why we have a problem, folks. I don’t think we should play games. Now, I never did polling on that - I don’t know if that’s popular, I don’t know if that’s unpopular… But these people are killing our families, and we have to do something. We can’t just keep setting up blue-ribbon committees with your wife and your wife and your husband, and they meet and they have a meal and they talk, talk, talk, two hours later, then they write a report.”
For Trump the fight against drugs is part of his “Make America Great Again” campaign pitch and commitment, as he also revealed in the rally his slogan for his reelection bid in 2020- “Keep America Great!”

I agree with this in some ways.
Only IF the drugs are Physically addictive narcotics and only then Distributor/Suppliers, but not the run of the mill addicted corner dealers selling a few 3 to 5x cut hits feeding their own habit.
The article is fine but no I do not believe the government has the right to put its citizens to death
By the power(77) vested in me by GOD as His/Her Christ(77=C3+H8+R18+I9+S19+T20), I hereby rule that 3.11.18 is your Judgment Day: you FAIL.
Sentence: Very bad luck for the rest of your life, then your eternal soul will not be reincarnated as human for 174 years just for your sins here (you have many more). When you are born-again as human, it will be under very hellish circumstances.
Note: You can repent, reverse your decision here, do many hours of verifiable community service, and petition this court for a retrial. GOD & the Christ are just & forgiving. However, 17.4 years of your reincarnation sentence is non-commutable and any contempt-of-court will result in an increased sentence.
I strongly recommend that you respect this Judgment.
