President Trump encouraged Americans in New Hampshire on Monday to “win this battle” against drug dealers, telling the crowd that he wants the problem solved by the time he leaves office.

The president promised to get tough on criminals peddling deadly drugs in the United States. “Some of these drug dealers will kill thousands of people during their lifetime,” Trump said. “And they’ll get caught, and they’ll get 30 days in jail or they’ll go away for a year or they’ll get fined.”

Other criminals, who only kill one person, sometimes get life in prison or the death penalty, Trump said. He later told the crowd that he would seek the death penalty for drug traffickers.

“This isn’t about nice anymore,” he added, slamming discussions that did not lead to action.

“I want to win this battle. I don’t want to leave at the end of seven years and have this problem,” the president said.
