President Trump is rushing to make it possible to allow for capital punishment by firing squad... just like the Taliban.

US President Donald Trump is paving the way for additional methods of executing prisoners who have been sentenced to death in the United States, according to new government documents.

The US Justice Department has amended the rules on federal executions, which would allow death by firing squads or poison gas, according to a document published in the Federal Register on Friday.

Poison gas too? Wow, I did Nazi that coming.

Well, maybe I did.

Trump restarted federal executions this year after a 17-year hiatus and is rushing to execute five prisoners during his lame-duck period, including three just days before President-elect Joe Biden takes office.

No wonder the Taliban endorsed Donald Trump for president.
