Donald Trump Wants To Execute Drug Dealers and Human Traffickers

Donald Trump Calls for the DEATH PENALTY!

(WatchDogReport.org) – Former President Donald Trump is many things: aggressive, abrupt, and in many cases, dead-on correct. Such was the case with the Russian influence hoax concocted by the political Left and the impact the mainstream media’s (mis-) handling of the Hunter Biden laptop scandal may have had on the 2020 election. On Saturday, September 17, he delivered a speech at a Save America rally in Youngstown, Ohio, and spoke more truth, taking aim at the drug and human trafficking crisis the country faces because of President Joe Biden’s policies on how to handle the Mexican border.

Capital Punishment

Many blue states and cities are going soft on crime. An example is an Illinois law that will take effect on January 1, 2023; it will eliminate cash bail for most criminal defendants. Political commentator Gianno Caldwell, using hyperbole to great effect, wrote an opinion piece for the New York Post, which likened the idea to the first step of creating a society as portrayed in “The Purge” movie franchise. For those unfamiliar with the storyline, there is one night per year when people are free to commit any crime without fear of consequences.

President Trump, on the other hand, has said he believes the people who are devastating so many American families by bringing drugs, especially fentanyl, into the country and forcing many women and children into sex trafficking should meet the ultimate punishment. He told the assembly, “I’m calling for the death penalty for drug dealers and human traffickers,” which he justified by reminding everybody how much death and damage are done by them.

Drug Dealing

One drug that has been pouring over the border, and is linked to both the Mexican cartels and the People’s Republic of China (PRC), is fentanyl. The United States Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) describes it as “a synthetic opioid that is 50-100 times stronger than morphine.”

It was first developed to help cancer patients battle the intense pain the disease can cause, and because of that effect, it became a money-maker for the cartels. One thing that makes it so deadly is the fact that the people who make other drugs like heroin will include fentanyl to boost the euphoric effects without telling their buyers they have done so.

The Health and Human Services Agency in Shasta County, California, issued a press release that confirmed that “fentanyl is now the number one cause of death for Americans ages 18 to 45,” based on 2021 numbers from the CDC. The group Families Against Fentanyl published an easy-to-read table of the statistics showing overdoses of the drug claimed more lives than motor vehicle accidents, suicide, and COVID-19 by a wide margin.

Human Trafficking

President Trump also said that much of the crime in the United States is linked to the drug trade. A post on the DEA website by the Special Agent in Charge of the Washington, DC Division, Jarod Forget, from January 28, 2021, said, “[h]uman trafficking [is] something we often see inextricably linked with drug trafficking…”

The exact number of people who are victims is challenging to pin down, as the anti-trafficking advocacy group DeliverFund freely admits. Its webpage says that it is “estimated that between 15,000 to 50,000 women and children are forced into sexual slavery in the United States every year.”

The organization goes on to quote other sources that try to estimate the total number, like the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), which puts it at 240,000-325,000, and the University of Pennsylvania, placing it at 100,000-300,000. It isn’t neglecting the male victims in any way, but notes they are generally caught up in the slave labor markets.

President Trump knew he was broaching a sensitive topic when he brought up the death penalty, saying it’s a horrible thing to talk about, even for him.

What’s your opinion on the matter? Should traffickers, whether in drugs or human beings, face the death penalty when they are convicted?
