It seems like each new proposal from Donald Trump’s White House is dumber than the last.
If you thought starting a trade war was stupid, just wait until you learn what 45’s latest idea is. According to the Washington Post, the administration is studying new policy that will allow prosecutors to pursue the death penalty for drug dealers.
Apparently, Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions want to look like they’re no nonsense in the failed “War On Drugs” but instead, just give off the image of nonsense.
Currently, Donald Trump’s Domestic Policy Council, along with the Department of Justice, are just determining ways a stricter policy could be introduced in the America. The Post speculates that potential policy could make it a capital crime to traffic large amounts of fentanyl while implementing tougher-than-current penalties for large-scale dealers.
A final announcement about punishment for drug traffickers is expected to come within the next few weeks.
This isn’t the first time Donald Trump has thought the death penalty would be a good idea for drug dealers. During a phone conversation with the New York Times, he said that Philippine President Rodrigo Duerte is doing an “unbelievable job” for his death policy on drug dealers.
