Trump Threatens To Execute Men Who…

It has been noted via Zero Hedge. that leftist outlet The Huffington Post is quite upset that former President Donald Trump has suggested that the death penalty should be extended to drug kingpins and child sex traffickers.



In an article, the outlet noted the remarks Trump made two years ago. He stated that while it “sounds horrible” to advocate for the death penalty, countries that don’t have a “drug problem” are “those that institute a very quick trial, death penalty sentence” for traffickers.

“You execute a drug dealer, and you’ll save 500 lives, because they kill on average 500 people,” Trump asserted at the time.

The article has cited former Trump DOJ official Gene Hamilton and noted that he previously advocated pursuing the death penalty for violent criminals, particularly those convicted of sexual abuse of children.

It has been noted that Hamilton wrote that the DOJ “should also pursue the death penalty for applicable crimes—particularly heinous crimes involving violence and sexual abuse of children—until Congress says otherwise through legislation.”

By referring to past court decisions, the piece subtly argues that the death penalty for child rape “would violate constitutional protections against cruel and unusual punishment.” It also negatively points to efforts in states such as Florida to expand the death penalty to such horrific crimes, before pointing out that Joe Biden has previously opposed execution entirely, but is currently remaining silent.
