Bloomberg: Trump Quips He’d ‘Destroy’ Texas Lawmaker Who Irked Sheriff by Toluse Olorunnipa & Margaret Talev:
President Trump jokes about destroying a politician’s career
President Donald Trump offered to inflict political damage on lawmakers who try to limit civil asset forfeiture, making a joke about a practice that has come under serious criticism in recent years from Democrats and libertarian-minded Republicans.
During a meeting at the White House with county sheriffs, Trump said he would “destroy” the career of a Texas state legislator who had proposed restrictions on seizures of property belonging to suspected criminals.
So much for the rule of law in America.
