Trump Wants Death Penalty For Drug Dealers (Video)

US President Donald Trump gave a speech in New Hampshire during which he urged lawmakers to follow the plan his White House Administration will put forward shortly. A plan that includes much tougher penalties for drug dealers.

New Hampshire is a state badly affected by the nationwide opioid crisis and Mr. Trump explained how he wants to repair this. The solution for him would be a death penalty for drug dealers.

<blockquote class="twitter-video" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Death Penalty for heroin/fentanyl dealers.👊🔥<br><br>Trump tells a rally in Pennsylvania that drug dealers are &#39;killing our kids, they&#39;re killing our families, they&#39;re killing our workers&#39;, &amp; says countries such as China do not have a drug problem because they have capital punishment. <a href="https://t.co/NGCOOYv9I7">pic.twitter.com/NGCOOYv9I7</a></p>&mdash; Maverick (@RodStryker) <a href="https://twitter.com/RodStryker/status/975818193829851136?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">March 19, 2018</a></blockquote>

He, therefore, told the crowd in Manchester, New Hampshire: "If we don't get tough on the drug dealers we're wasting our time. And that toughness includes the death penalty."

The crowd cheered him on as he continued the speech: "We have to change the laws and we're working on that now. The Department of Justice is working very hard on that."

"The ultimate penalty has to be the death penalty," the US president stated "Now maybe our country's not ready for that. It's possible, it's possible."

Current US laws do already allow the death penalty for drug dealers if their crimes, for example, involve a drive-by shooting.

<blockquote class="twitter-video" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Trump says most heroin comes in from the U.S.-Mexico border where “eventually, the Democrats will agree with us and build the wall to keep the damn drugs out” <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/tictocnews?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#tictocnews</a> <a href="https://t.co/knkisDuJNU">pic.twitter.com/knkisDuJNU</a></p>&mdash; TicToc by Bloomberg (@tictoc) <a href="https://twitter.com/tictoc/status/975809848821469185?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">March 19, 2018</a></blockquote>

According to the US President’s reasoning, drug dealers do the same damage as people shooting others with guns. He stated: "Some of these drug dealers will kill thousands of people in their lifetimes, and destroy the lives of many more people than that."

"And yet if you kill one person you get the death penalty or you go to jail for life."

I agree at least on the point that Illegal Narcotic Suppliers and distributors should face the death penalty.

But could not support such a law for NON-Addictive recreational items.
