President Trump has reiterated his calls for the U.S. to impose the death penalty on drug dealers, praising countries like the Philippines, China and Singapore that apply capital punishment to drug traffickers. Trump made the remarks during a campaign-style rally in Moon Township, Pennsylvania, on Saturday.
President Donald Trump: “When I was in China—and other places, by the way—I said, 'Mr. President, do you have a drug problem?' 'No, no, no. We do not.' I said, 'Huh, big country, 1.4 billion people, right? Not much of a drug problem.' I said, 'What do you attribute that to?' 'Well, uh, the death penalty.'”
