President Trump Opt Death Penalty For Drug Dealers

United States President, Donald Trump suggested drug dealers in the country should be given the death penalty or life in prison.

President Trump made the suggestion during a campaign rally for congressional candidate Rick Saccone in Pennsylvania on Saturday.

“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 praised Singapore and China for their “zero tolerance policy” when it comes to drugs.

“That means if we catch a drug dealer, death penalty,” Trump said of Singapore, recalling a conversation he had with the country’s president. “And they don’t have a problem.”

Last year, Trump congratulated Duterte for his efforts in eradicating drugs from the country, according to a leaked transcript of their phone call.

“I just wanted to congratulate you because I am hearing of the unbelievable job on the drug problem,” Trump reportedly said. “Many countries have the problem, we have a problem, but what a great job you are doing and I just wanted to call and tell you that.”
