While speaking at a campaign rally in Pennsylvania Saturday night, President Trump made a suggestion that appalled some, and had others cheering, as he said perhaps drug dealers should get the death penalty.
The president was referring to China, Singapore and other Asian countries, who say they don’t have much of a drug problem, because they apply the death penalty to drug dealers.
“They don’t play games. I said, how are you doing on drugs? ‘No problem.’ I said what do you mean no problem? ‘We have a zero tolerance policy.’ What does that mean? ‘That means if we catch a drug dealer, death penalty,’” Trump said.
Noting how thousands of people die from drug overdoses in the United States each year, Trump suggested that drug dealers should be held responsible for those deaths.
