Trump proposes death penalty for drug dealers


FAMILIES FOR GENERATIONS. THE PRESIDENT PITCHED THE WHITE HOUSE PLAN TO COMBAT THE OPIOID CRISIS IN NEW HAMPSHIRE TODAY. HERE HE IS DOUBLE DOWN ON HIS MOST OF CONTROVERSIAL PROPOSAL. WATCH. PRESIDENT TRUMP: IF WE DON’T GET TOUGH ON THE DRUG DEALERS WE ARE WASTING OUR TIME. JUST REMEMBER THAT. WE ARE WASTING OUR TIME. THAT TOUGHNESS INCLUDES THE DEATH PENALTY. KENNEDY: WILL THE PRESIDENT’S TOUGH TALK HELP AT ALL? LET ME ASK REASON.COM’S MANAGING EDITOR PETER SUDERMAN. PETER, LET’S DISCUSS THIS. PEOPLE WANT TO SEE SOME SORT OF RESOLUTION. I UNDERSTAND THAT. PEOPLE WANT THE GOVERNMENT TO DO SOMETHING. BUT THEY CAN MAKE A BAD SITUATION WORSE, RIGHT?>>YES, THAT’S EXACTLY RIGHT. THE MOST OF IMPORTANT WORDS IN THAT CLIP YOU PLAYED WERE GET TOUGH. THAT’S WHAT TRUMP WANTED TO DO AND SEEN TO BE DOING. BUT GETTING TOUGH AND TREATING THE OPIOID PROBLEM AS A CRIMINALIZATION PROBLEM, ONE OF CRIME IS A BAD WAY TO GO. IF YOU GO BACK TO MY HOME STATE OF FLORIDA YOU SAW WHAT HAPPENS. THEY PASSED REALLY SEVERE MINIMUM SENTENCES NOT THE DEATH PENALTY, BUT LONG JAIL SENTENCES FOR PEOPLE WHO WERE SUPPOSE TO BE HIGH-LEVEL DEALERS BRINGING DRUGS INTO THE STATE. THIS WAS A STATE WITH A BIG PROBLEMS WITH DRUGS, PARTICULARLY OXYCONTIN. THEY WERE FIRST ON THE SCENE WITH THE OPIOID CRISIS. THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE LOCKED UP WERE FIRST-TIME OFFENDERS OFTEN CAUGHT WITH JUST A HANDFUL OF PILLS. THEY DIDN’T SOLVE THE PROBLEM. INSTEAD THEY DESTROYED PEOPLE’S LIVES PEOPLE WHO WERE NOT HIGH-LEVEL DEALERS. KENNEDY: WE ARE HAVING A CONVERSATION ON THE REPUBLICAN SIDE. YOU HEARD CARLY FIORINA AND JEB BUSH TELLING PERSONAL STORIES MEMBERS TO DRUG AND ALCOHOL ADDICTION IT’S ONE THING TO HAVE A PARTY SAY WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT TREATMENT. THAT’S GREAT. WE NEED TO TAKE PEOPLE OUT OF THE PRISON SYSTEM AND REDUCE THE CRIMINALIZATION. AND FINALLY ONCE AND FOR ALL, TALK ABOUT TREATING PEOPLE. INSTEAD WE ARE TAKING THE MOST OF EXTREME TURN WHICH IS TOWARD EXECUTING DRUG DEALERS WHICH WAS POINTED OUT IN “REASON” THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO BUY DRUGS, AND PEOPLE WHO SELL DRUGS, IT’S NOT A ONE-WAY STREET.>>IT’S VERY MISGUIDED IT’S UNDERSTANDABLE PEOPLE WOULD WANTS TO BE SEEN AS TAKING SERIOUS ACTION. BUT THE SERIOUS ACTION THAT CAN BE TAKEN IS TO TREAT THE OPIOIDS EPIDEMIC AS A CRISIS OF MEDICINE. AS AN ISSUE WITH PEOPLE WHO ARE SICK AND NEED TO BE TREATED. TALKING ABOUT ALL THESE POLITICIANS, ALL THESE PEOPLE, PEOPLE WATCHING WHO HAD PERSONAL EXPERIENCE WHO KNOW SOMEBODY WHO OVERDOSED AND HAD A PROBLEM WITH ADDICTION. WHAT WE WANT TO DO WITH THOSE PEOPLE IS FIND WAYS TO HELP THEM. THAT’S THE GOAL HERE. THESE SORTS OF EXTREMELY HARSH GET TOUGH TIMES OF ACTIONS LIKE PRESIDENT TRUMP WAS PROPOSING, I THINK THEY ARE VERY MISGUIDE. THEY ARE NOT GOING TO WORK. AND INSTEAD WE NEED TO BE TREATING THESE PEOPLE LIKE PEOPLE WHO NEED HELP AND ARE SICK.>>AND NOT ISSUING VIOLATIONS OF

  1. some buisness man will provide the goods and services to consumers that government denies.
    its called capitalism.

  2. You'd be better off giving the death penalty to people that do drugs because once they're all dead there will be no need for drug dealers

  3. dealers are killing people… and they should be judged as murderers… because that is what they are..

  4. Most US Opiate addicts only buy from Opiod dealers because it costs less on the streets than buying from the GP's that prescribe them; sounds like Trump's taking out competition.

  5. Most US Opiate addicts only buy from Opiod dealers because it costs less on the streets than buying from the GP's that prescribe them; sounds like Trump's taking out competition.

  6. it look quite a few people are scared because their side job will be rewarded appropriately … they kill people. and they should be treated as murderers

  7. Drug dealers could care less about the lives of the people they kill by saling them all drugs..they need a life for a life consequences!

  8. Sad so many don't see how much money there is in selling drugs on the street.You see many get jail time and thats not even a dent in how many dealers there are. When people go into the doctors office and get pain medication go home and sell the bottle of 20 pills for 100$ to a dealer who then sells it the street for 20$ a pill all day long.

  9. All we have to do is actually apply the laws we have….

    Crime causing death can cause that death to be charged as "capital" murder. (First degree… whatever the different states call the level that can get the death penalty.)

    So, trace any death due to overdose to the drug dealer and they can be executed.

  10. That's an interesting concept as the United States government has more drug dealers then any other group in the world.

  11. I say introduce amputation!! Deal drugs….. lose a hand. Deal again… bye arm.
    Third time…. good night Irene.

  12. WHAT A LOAD OF 😒
    ESPECIALLY with that cabinet of his MOTLEY CREW HE PICKED😄 MOST OF THEM SHOULD GO INTO THE CELL AHEAD OF THE DEALERS. TRUMP leading the way.

  13. EXCELLENT, TAKE OUT THE GARBAGE…
    NO GUN CONTROL…
    AMERICA NEEDS PROTECTION FROM DRUG DEALER CRIMINALS…
    I SUPPORT THE SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS OF AMERICA…
    FROM MY COLD DEAD HANDS…
    AMERICA NEEDS PROTECTION FROM CRIMINALS AND CRIME…
    GOD BLESS AMERICA…
    DEATH TO DRUG DEALERS…

  14. What an idiotic thing to propose…….And I’m a FAN of Trump’s!!! So dumb, on so many levels. You could expect such stupidity out of Session’s mouth (except props for continuous strength of fighting illegals and, recently, firing McCabe). Aside from that, he just sits and watches criminality go unaddressed. And when he does something, it’s really dumb and outrages the majority of ALL Americans, on the left and right. Going after state legalized marijuana? Reinstating, then expanding and strengthening Civil Forfeiture procedures? So when I say Trump sounds like Sessions, it’s beyond unflattering.

  15. I truely support his decision, the teenager doing drugs at my highschool are really annoying and they think they’re really cool

  16. Death sentences for doctors? A doctor was busted in Utah known as "the candy man" a few years back, famous among druggies for easy prescriptions.

  17. I agree I had family that started with marijuana and went to pain killers and ended up dead all dealers should be hanged like they do in china and thialand

  18. This dimwit is missing the point…Trump wants to Help drug users and Kill drug dealers!
    Makes perfect sense to me.

  19. So , death penalty for drunk drivers, for a wrong lane chane , texting on ur phone driving ? U Americans r fucking backwards , ur orange clown is making u into 1939 Germany , ur like a dying monarchy, sad

  20. Bad idea. Misguided policy. Where is the call to give the distillers of Jim Beam the death penalty? The hypocrisy and irony never ends.

  21. you still wearing your funky ass bitch man-made president do you need to run a bitch a thing in this world no president Nationwide

    these prices in Houston come mess with me bitch

  22. you still wearing your funky ass bitch man-made president do you need to run a bitch a thing in this world no president Nationwide

    these prices in Houston come mess with me bitch

  23. Mr.Clitooon chicken and nothing to do with America for 8 years make America look to dump. Mr. Obanana chicken and mess around for 8 years make America trouble with Gang, Drug, and illegals. Mr. Bus ok make Sadam and some idiot go to heaven. Now Mr. Trump is the Supper and the best of the best America President because you Not Follow any one rule. Do what you have to do and remember, you not do for only you. You do for all the America and the next generation America children live in peace without Gang, without Drug, and without Violence. You are Supper, Mr. Trump. I like the way you do. You are the Supper the World.

  24. LET YOUR CHILD DIE FROM OVER DOSE AND THEN TELL ME THAT A DRUG DEALER DOESNT KILL HUNDREDS IF NOT THOUSANDS . I STAND WITH TRUMP

  25. Why only opioid? Sounds a bit hypocritical. Why not crack, skunk, ice, rhoypnol. After all how many lives do those drugs ruin.
    Why not death penalty to psychiatrist quacks that ruin people's lives and get people addicted. And big pharma executives who are the real drug dealers.
    Nancy Reagan tried this it failed…..just say no…..followed by Clinton's 3 strikes you're out….failed. Now trump, oh well.
    America sounds like a shit place to live right now tbh. Live shooter drills in primary schools, literacy at 60%, counties with 95% incest etc.
    I'm glad I live in the uk. We may have our problems, but it's still safer than that mad house.
    Trump keeps echoing the rhetoric of third world backwards dictators trying to compete with them 😂. What a lunatic.

  26. Trump is at least trying to do something, which is a lot more than Obama did. I thought that was why we elected Donald Trump to begin with. Liberals only care about who they can sell their food stamps to,so they can buy drugs. Do any men work anymore. Most men now days get a woman pregnant, live with her, lay around the house and let welfare take care of them. I think Pandora's box has been opened, and I think it will be a miracle if Trump can change things.

  27. Hell Yea… Let's MURDER more People and Escalate the WAR ON (the People) DRUGS! How is that Program been Working?
    Welcome to the United Police States of America… Oligarchy Police State… USSA! Bend over Sheeple the Government has a surprise for you… the Giant Red White and Blue Government/Tax/Police/SPY/Gun Control/Censorship/Warmongering Weenie! PACIFICATION BY FORCE! You will Comply or DIE!
    The US Cops are nothing more than Lying Coward Thug Domestic TERRORIST with badges! Blue ISIS!

    There is No Better "SLAVE" than a "SLAVE" that thinks he is “FREE”! Take Back Your "Rights" and your Government! End the Police/Deep State and Make the US Constitution the "Law of the Land" again!

    According to Our Government: Spying, Violence, Lying, Theft, & Corruption of Any Kind is Unacceptable in our Society… Unless the Spying, Violence, Lying, Theft, & Corruption is Perpetrated by the Government!

    Home Grown State Sponsored Terrorist Groups – Congress, FBI, CIA, NSA, NRO, NGA, TSA, DEA, DHS, BLM, EPA, IRS, State & Local Police, etc!

    The Government Giveth and the Government Taketh Away, blessed be the name of the Government! Wake Up Sheeple… you are not Free!

    The Government cannot Legislate Morality, Security, or Safety… It does not Work! Law Abiding Citizens just lose "Rights"! Are you prepared to Lose more of your "Rights" and Expand the Police State!

  28. not matter what we do, the problem not going away. we will never short of greedy people that willing to take risk, and will never short of people desperate in need of money, and will never short of stupid people taking drug for recreation. will never short of people with miserable life that they want to get away, they really need to accept what they have, and society must accept what it is too, higher standard create more stressful people.

  29. The Death Penalty for Drug Dealers is code and a dog whistle for "THE DEATH PENALTY FOR BLACK PEOPLE".  Remember how Donald PUSSY GRABBING Trump demanded the death penalty for FIVE INNOCENT BLACK TEENAGERS (CENTRAL PARK 5) he accused of rape in 1989?  If Trump wants the death penalty for Drug Dealers, let's start by EXECUTING THE FUCKING DRUG DEALING CEO'S AT THE OPIOID MANUFACTURERS + THE DEATH PENALTY FOR FUCKING GUN SHOOTING MASS MURDERERS!!!

  30. I have traveled to 47 countries never have I been somewhere that did not have a drug problem. Even Singapore has drugs its just not talked about in the public eye.

  31. Not one Pharmaceutical CEO will even have to appear in court, no doctor will spend even one day in prison but people who sell drugs on the street to support the sickness that was given to them by greedy companies will be the ones they kill. I know plenty of people who sold drugs and have now turned their life around. People can and do change all the time.

  32. if someone is selling heroine and crack to your kids – give him a shot. there is no other explanation than greed and ill will on the dealer side. these drugs will ruin your brain and body. so think what it will do to the child that still grow

  33. I believe Trump did a lot of good things for businesses and the economy but this makes me sick. And the things he said about the second amendment taking peoples guns without due process. Fuck you, Trump! I ain't voting for your ass in 2020 I will vote for a left wing SJW before you.

  34. The Government started this drug war. If people are going to do drugs they will. And if people don’t wish to do drugs, they don’t need a law. This drug war has hurt more then it helps. So they give a death penalty. These people will fight harder and the war gets worse. Look at all the people that are locked out of a job. Just from drug testing. They got nazi dogs sniffing the public’s crotch. People’s lives are ruined not from drugs, but buy getting caught with them and that means no job for life. So welfare comes in as income.

  35. Why not? Drugs bring death. Traffickers get death back. Sounds reasonable.
    A drug addled society means a crippled workforce and weakened military.

  36. We're losing the war on drugs. To people on drugs. We can't beat people on drugs. So I can't wait for the death penalty to be handed down to doctors. Big pharm ect. in trumps mind, the opiod dealers are black men. The opiod dealers are mostly white doctors. He's conflating opiods and opiates. But for trump to be a businessman he should understand supply and demand. If you font work on demand the supply will continue to be there

  37. The Democrats are winning the votes because all the baby anchors that are voting against the Republicans, there are three or four generations of babies of anchors, the big electoral fraud is in their noses and the Republicans do not realize hahahaha.

  38. People are already afraid to bring a friend that is overdosing to the hospital or call the police, add the death penalty to the mix and addicts will be even more scared to seek help in the event of an overdose. More people will end up dead with this plan in effect. Also, with the death penalty over their heads, dealers will have no reason to not shoot at cops and attempt to escape when the police come after them.

  39. This WORLD just becomes SICKER and SICKER, WTF. You sell drugs we will find you and MURDER you for it! WTF!!! Think he's talkin about Pharmaceutical CEO'S?!?! The WEALTHY are and have ALWAYS brought the hard drugs into the country!!!! WAKE THE FK UP PPL!

  40. I'd like to see The Idiot Trump, Peon Pence, and one cultist SS agent – carrying a stick as protection, go into Juarez or Sinaloa, Mexico, and disrespectfully ask the cartels to stop sending their product into the US, OR ELSE. Take Ivanka, Jared, Junior, KellyAnn, Giuliani, Palin, Ryan, & some repugnicant caninet members too, along with Clarence Thomas, the NRA leaders, and a couple hundred of the most fervent Trump supporters. While there, they should curse, be obnoxious, and DEMAND that Mexico pay for Trump's stupid wall, & why not molest a few women while they're at it. I'm sure the Mexicans will agree to abide. HAHAHAHA!

  41. There's blood in the water. The sharks are circling. Are you lumps worried about your fraudulent, compulsive liar of a president being impeached? Or better yet, hung from the Washington monument as a traitor. Trump is trash. He's done

  42. Wtf is a sanctuary city? https://www.thereportreport.com/report/2018/3/25/trump-getting-tough-on-drug-dealers-includes-death-penalty

  43. My goodness' I was taking Oxycontin for over two years now, from being hit head on from a Drunk Driver! When I heard trump wanted to give Doctors the Death Penalty. I got right off them, and told my Doctor. Now I have been off for two months, and just wondering when do these terrible with draws begin? All I have is pain, but when will the withdaws come in?

  44. People know drugs are bad and the black market is not regulated. It is no one's fault but the people who willing buy and take the dangerous drugs. All you will do by putting the death penalty is put everyone more in danger, especially the cops who are expected to enforce these laws. If there is a death penalty for drug dealers, then when the DEA or cops raid a house, they will be in a lot more danger because now that drug dealer is defending their life, not just their freedom. This will only give an incentive for drug dealers to protect themselves more thoroughly.

  45. Stupid idea. The war on drugs is already a failure and needs to be ended, not escalate. Besides, if you read up on what these drug gangs do to each other every day you can see where the threat of the death penalty won’t phase them at all; they kill each other in ways that make lethal injection look like a cake walk. So no, it won’t scare them at all.

  46. prescribed drug have killed people does the government or doctor go to jail for murder government president whoever doing this shit will send you to jail or murder yo ass cause they not getting taxes off the s*** they want you to do their drugs not the drug you want to do. You can die from drinking too much water some people just don't have a strong mind not the drug it's the person

  47. Go head watch how many cops get killed over it bc you no a real mf ain’t getting the death penalty without a fight mayb yinz should raise your kids better mayb u should just stop Producing opioids and selling them over the market get the fuck out of here yinz are stupid as fuck

  48. What the fuck is wrong with people, you really think that's right to take someone's life over a substance, what I don't understand is how child rapist get 2 years in prison but yet if you have cocaine you can get life and it's just from earth it's medicine if your gonna do something, do something with all the cigarettes and alcohol and stop shutting down all the opium farms so more people can die on the street from fetnyl that has other shit in it

  49. Eliminate prisons!
    -All non violent offenses get community service, fines or alternative punishments aimed at rehabilitation, not incarceration.
    Drug dealers, child molesters, other violent offenders, etc get put to death.

  50. And Trump thinks we can't use a computer…. watch youtube video titled: Afghan drug trafficking brings US $50 billion a year
