Oh, and probably those of Philipines President Roberty Duarte, where extra-judicial murders by the State number between 4,000 and 12,000.
The US President pointed out that they "don't play games" in some Asian countries and, as as result, that they "don't have much of a drug problem".
Trump says he's been closely examining the "zero tolerance" approach of the death penalty in some Asia countries for drugs dealers.
Here is what Donald Trump had to say, which will no doubt put the fear of God into rationale thinking people who will be asking themselves, 'Is Trump really suggesting that the US follows Iran, Singapore and Saudi Arabia’s drug policies?!"
"If you look at other countries – I've got to know the leaders of many countries – and I won’t mention names but you know the countres I am talking about – and I ask them ‘How’s your drug problem’," Trump said. "And they say ‘We don’ have much of a drug problem’. ‘What do you mean you don’t have a drug problem? How come?’
“'We have zero tolerance for drug dealers.” “What does that mean?” “We have the death penalty for drug dealers. We don’t have a drug problem’ Take a look at some of these countries, where they don’t play games.
"They don’t have a drug problem. We have court cases that last 10 years, and then they get u at the end. We have to be tough. We have to be strong. we have to chang he laws.”
He has previously praised Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte, whose war against drug dealers has led to extra-judicial killings.
Philippines police claim they have killed 4,100 drug suspects as part of the campaign. But human rights groups say the real death toll is triple that number, and the International Criminal Court is investigating.
