Trump shops for death penalty for drug traffickers

President Donald Trump said executing drug dealers would help solve the opioid crisis currently gripping the United States.

Addressing a meeting of lawmakers at the White House Thursday, Trump said: “You have to have strength, and you have to have toughness.

“The drug dealers, the drug pushers, are really doing damage, 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. So, we are going to have to be very strong on penalties.”

The president added: “Hopefully, we can do some litigation on the opioid companies, I think it’s very important, because a lot of states are doing it.

“But I keep saying, if the states are doing it, why isn’t the federal government doing it? So, that will happen.”

President Trump is famously clean-living and has never drank alcohol, smoked or taken drugs.
