President Donald Trump would "love to have a law" that executes drug dealers, sources told news website Axios.
Trump is a reportedly a fan of Singapore's capital punishment policy.

The leader of the world's largest economy believes all drug dealers should face the death penalty, news website Axios reported late on Sunday.

President Donald Trump considers drug traffickers to be as bad as serial killers and would "love to have a law" that executes dealers in the U.S., unnamed sources told Axios.
While he admits that such a law would be impossible to pass, the head of state may support legislation that requires a five-year minimum sentence for dealers selling as little as two grams of fentanyl, Axios stated.

Use of the synthetic opiod, more potent than heroin, has been steadily climbing in North America, producing an increasing number of fatal overdoses.
The government must make drug dealers fear for their lives, Trump has told associates, pointing to Singapore and the Philippines -- where offenders can face death -- as examples.

Trump's comments mirror those of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte. The controversial leader gave police the authority to execute drug peddlers -- Duterte has even admitted to personally killing criminal suspects -- but the matter has morphed into a human rights situation amid widespread reports of extrajudicial killings.
Trump "often jokes about killing drug dealers," a senior administrative official told Axios. "He'll say, 'You know the Chinese and Filipinos don't have a drug problem. They just kill them,'" the official said.
According to Axios, Trump's team is reportedly discussing the prospect of adopting elements of Singapore's zero tolerance policy, such as more anti-drug education in schools.

This could be a decent solution in principle, if the death penalty were fool-proof.
It wouldn't be the only thing he would need to do to end the drug and gang violence in the US though.

I think he'd also have to reserve this penalty for only the hardest drugs, and leave the soft stuff to the side.
Seeing someone being executed for dealing anything lower than a schedule 2 drug would be insane.

Then again, because the death penalty isn't fool-proof, seeing anyone executed for anything is too.

If you don't like the punishment, nor can't handle the pain. Don't do the crime, if you can't do the time as they say.

Seems logical to me, although gang violence will never end.

Assuming this is legit, it's straight trash; although, I wouldn't be surprised considering his fondness of Duterte. Just tiring that killing seems to be answer to everything.

It's a NEW DAY YESSS IT ISS!

Back on topic, it is legit. Came straight from Fox-News. Also, if you do the crime you must suffer the consequences.

Death being the consequence is not justice. Justice is to take someone's freedom away if they do crimes. Personally, I think drugs in general should be decriminalized (though selling would probably still be illegal), and I'm also against all death penalties. It turning into a human rights situation is very valid.

The consequences have to be proportionate though. What crimes are worth the death penalty in your eyes?

If we kill everyone who violates the law, the world would be a better place. We kill people who bully our children & etc. Just the things that a slap on the wrist won't stop, so you have to do it the extreme way.

Imagine being put to death for dealing two dime bags of pot. If drug dealers would be put to death, would school shooters be executed in public via firing squad? Because if they'd much rather execute drug dealers than execute school shooters or serial killers, the government would be getting to a quite ridiculous level of handicap.

Just another dumb thing Trump has come up with.
