Trump gleefully encourages China to execute drug dealers

This totally ignores human rights, and the fact that executing dealers does not stop drug cartels.

Citing the number of people dying from fentanyl overdoses, President Donald Trump on Wednesday gleefully tweeted his support for China to start executing drug dealers.

“One of the very exciting things to come out of my meeting with President Xi of China is his promise to me to criminalize the sale of deadly Fentanyl coming into the United States,” he tweeted. “If China cracks down on this ‘horror drug,’ using the Death Penalty for distributors and pushers, the results will be incredible!”

It’s worth noting that the United States does not use the death penalty for drug traffickers, and that the policy of funding the “war on drugs” in countries that do execute traffickers and dealers is as ineffective as it is inhumane.

China has executed drug offenders, although fentanyl — a synthetic opioid — was not on the country’s list of controlled substances until now. China already leads the world in the number of executions, but it’s tough to know how many are killed on drug offenses.

2. Capital punishment for drug trafficking seems to stll enjoy popular majority support in China.

Traffickers are regarded as absolute dregs. There are discussions of scale, but the act itself is considered a profound violation of the social contract.
