President Trump is going to East Palestine b/c those people aren’t being helped and now even Rosie O’Donnell agrees there is a major coverup here— DC_Draino (@DC_Draino) February 19, 2023
Think of how bad Biden and Buttigieg are doing when you’ve got Trump and Rosie agreeing on something
You may be thinking – WHAT? But hold on. Donald J. Trump has stated he wants to bring back public executions and air them live on TV. Considering we do live in an age where delinquents run rampant and cause havoc everywhere, perhaps a little capital punishment might not go a miss – making an example and all. Maybe the criminals will think twice before doing something stupid. It would seem generations have been trained enough to see violence and gore on TV via video games and movies – they wouldn’t be offended by it. So perhaps Trump is on to something.
As per Trending Politics, Former president Donald Trump has been in discussions with “close associates” regarding his 2024 presidential campaign, but this time with new ideas.
Among the topics discussed are plans to reintroduce the death penalty, with a bevy of execution methods enacted by the federal government. And thus time, potentially televise these executions as a means of deterring violent crime and drug trafficking, according to Rolling Stone’s report citing several sources close to Trump.
Rolling Stone reports that Trump has actually asked those who are close to him, “what do you think of firing squads?”
Trump has talked about bringing back death by firing squad, by hanging, and, according to two of the sources, possibly even by guillotine. He has also, sources say, discussed group executions. Trump has floated these ideas while discussing planned campaign rhetoric and policy desires, as well as his disdain for President Biden’s approach to crime.”
He has even, one of the sources recounts, mused about televising footage of executions, including showing condemned prisoners in the final moments of their lives.
It should not be unexpected that Trump has expressed support for using hanging and firing squads as methods of execution by the federal government, as he had previously made similar remarks. Slate reported in August 2020 that the Department of Justice, at Trump’s behest, had put forth a proposal to permit the use of hanging, electrocution, gassing, or shooting as alternatives to lethal injection for executing individuals.
“The president believes this would help put the fear of God into violent criminals. He wanted to do some of these [things] when he was in office, but for whatever reasons didn’t have the chance,” according to the RollingStone.
