Trump Wants to Execute Drug Dealers, Says NATO Was Formed “So They Could Treat Us Badly”
The impeached president of the United States was at it again today, in a meeting with US governors, launching into bizarre boastful rants on subjects he knows nothing about; Trump says, “The European Union was really formed so they could treat us badly.”
He didn’t make up this conspiracy theory — it comes directly from the worst corners of the far right. Think John Birch Society.

NATO wasn’t “going down like a rocket ship,” of course. Like any con man, Trump is always myth-building about himself. This is supposed to make people believe he “fixed” NATO.
Then he weighed in, in his usual block-headed ignorant way, about the coronavirus outbreak.

But here’s the comment that should give all Americans nightmares:
Trump suggests he’d like to model American criminal law on drug dealing on authoritarian systems like China, where dealers are executed: “Countries with a powerful death penalty, with a fair but quick trial, they have very little if any drug problem. That includes China.” pic.twitter.com/9WprysjJAX
Donald Trump fantasizes constantly about murdering people, and he now feels more emboldened than ever.
