President Trump suggested executing drug dealers to crack down on Americas opioid crisis.
The drug dealers, the drug pushers, theyre really doing damage, Trump said at an opioid event at the White House Thursday. Some countries have a very, very tough penalty the ultimate penalty. And by the way, they have much less of a drug problem than we do.

States won’t do it. NYS, for example, won’t execute cop killers. It’ll have to be done at the federal level.
It’s great how President Trump can dominate the news cycle with minimal effort. Expressing approval is not the same as suggesting we should do the same, but the Left will freak out over this until he dangles his next distraction in front of them.
Meanwhile, we are confirming judges who believe in the rule of law, although not quickly enough. We are repealing harmful regulations, although not quickly enough. We are deporting illegals to restore the rule of law, although nowhere near quickly enough. Don’t get me wrong, I’m thrilled that Trump is our president. I just don’t believe it’s enough to preserve freedom, not without a second civil war shortly after the Left retakes power.
Including the pharmaceutical company executives?
According to a 2011 article by the Lawyers Collective, an NGO in India, “32 countries impose capital punishment for offences involving narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances.”
If they are prosecuted on a federal level the rat sanctuary cities will be protecting them like they protect the illegal immigrants
THAT one’s a little much, but people are not fleeing the nation in droves, so .....
I’ve wondered, since my 20’s, why we didn’t execute drug dealers. I’m 64 now.
To be clear, I’m talking about things like Cocaine, LSD, etc. Not Alcohol and marijuana.
Maybe if the drugs cross state borders, it becomes a federal offense. (interstate commerce).
I don't think the writer meant this quite the way it came off.
Trump suggested nothing. He simply stated the facts as he sees them. The writer is an idiot and a propagandist.
My brother-in-law is from Honduras and the drug crime there is so bad they won't even vacation there anymore. His niece has a grown daughter who married into a very wealthy family and they won't travel anywhere without armed security down there.
It takes us 30 years to execute murderers. Flood death row with drug dealers and nobody will make it through the appeals process to the death chamber.
People will read into things whatever they want.
He could say that the sky was blue and some lib would come along and argue with him about it, just on principle.
He does have a point about the executing drug dealers though.
It’s happening and there’s only so fast it can be done considering the magnitude of the job.
Trump is only human and is fighting the Deep State almost single handedly.
Give him time.
Could you do it any faster?
Words have meanings. He did NOT suggest executing drug dealers. F*ck the media. They just make things up. The public still has its head up its a$$, and believes all this.
BTW, it’s a good idea to execute them.
