  • You never hear all that much about a big drug problem in Singapore. Could it be because the country gives the death penalty to drug dealers?
  • President Donald Trump is a big fan of Singapore’s use of the death penalty for drug trafficking offenses and often tells confidants that drug dealers should be punished with the death penalty.
  • While Trump reportedly talks with his friends about the way Singapore deals with drug dealers, he acknowledges that such a law would be unlikely to pass in the United States.
  • Is Trump right, would a definitive punishment such as the death penalty end drug dealing?
  • Trump aide Kellyanne Conway makes it clear that Trump isn't talking about your buddy passing you some marijuana. He wants the deadly drug trade to be minimized though.
