President Donald Trump once again called for the death penalty for drug dealers.

The president has repeatedly praised authoritarian nations that execute people for selling illegal drugs, and he did so again Monday at a White House meetings with governors.

“Countries with a powerful death penalty, with a fair but quick trial, they have very little if any drug problem," Trump told the governors. "That includes China.”
