Trump 'says USA should consider death penalty for drug dealers'
Mar 12, 2018, 06:00
President Donald Trump has again called for enacting the death penalty for drug dealers during a rally meant to bolster a struggling GOP candidate for a US House seat. "As soon as he gets in, he's not going to vote for us".
Mnuchin also argued the press should pay less attention to Trump's rally speeches and more attention to his policies, such as his announcement on tariffs last week. He's a vocal supporter of Trump's plan to implement tariffs of 25% on steel and 10% on aluminum, and the Republicans' 2017 Tax Act, which, perhaps most notably, slashed the corporate tax rate to 21% from 35%. He repeatedly referred to Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Oprah Winfrey.
"There's also a segment of undecideds that hopefully they'll remember why they voted for Trump to begin with, and they'll come out and vote for me", Saccone said before talking to natural gas workers in Canonsburg.
Both candidates in Pennsylvania's 18th District, Democrat Conor Lamb and Republican Rick Saccone (suh-KOHN'), have endorsed the tariffs.
Trump endorsed Saccone in January, and outside Republican groups have spent more than $10 million on the race in support of Saccone, who's weak fundraising numbers have seen him outraised by Lamb by almost five-to-one in the first seven weeks of the year.
And in a district that, though he won by 20 points in 2016, is now a swing district?
He said Chinese leader Xi Jinping told him the country has no problems with drugs because of executions.

"Steel is back, it's going to be back too", Trump said told the crowd.
While the western Pennsylvania district normally leans Republican, Democrats are confident they can win Tuesday's election, in part because of the controversy surrounding Trump's term in office.
Trump derided Democratic Representative Maxine Waters as "a very low IQ individual" and said that Washington DC was full of "evil" people. In the House, several liberal members of the Democratic conference have introduced resolutions of impeachment, but just 66 Democrats voted in January to proceed to debate on one of those resolutions.
He said former presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush had let North Korea's nuclear program go unchecked, resulting in a crisis he was determined to solve. "Time and place to be determined". "The promise is they wouldn't be shooting off missiles in the meantime, and they're looking to de-nuke", he said.
"He also credited South Korea for doing a" great job" with the recent 2018 Winter Olympics. And analysts say even a closer-than-expected loss for Lamb in a district so heavily tilted toward Trump could symbolically translate into a win for Democrats - evidence that with the right candidate and the right message they can make inroads into Trump country. Trump also attacked the new map, calling it "very unfair".
"We have to build a wall", he said. In a January interview Trump said that he is not a feminist, because he's not exclusively supportive of women but of all people.
Trump said he wasn't sure whether the nation would be accepting of such a harsh penalty. He threatened to fight a trade war with the European Union over his tariffs on steel and aluminum: "We're gonna tax Mercedes Benz".
He was convicted on August 5 , 2017 of securities fraud and conspiracy in what prosecutors said amounted to a Ponzi scheme. The seriousness of his crimes meant Shkreli deserved a long sentence , argued Assistant US Attorney Jacquelyn Kasulis .
He also praised Le Pen's vision of a political spectrum that is no longer left- right but nationalists versus globalists. Every day, we become stronger and they become weaker. "Today's politics can not be summed up by the left-right divide".
