Trump Again Suggests Execution for Snowden

By    |   Monday, 01 July 2013 12:47 PM

Donald Trump broached the idea of execution for National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden for the second time in a week Monday.

"I think Snowden is a terrible threat, I think he's a terrible traitor, and you know what we used to do in the good old days when we were a strong country? You know what we used to do to traitors, right?" Trump said on the "Fox & Friends" program.

"Well, you killed them, Donald," host Eric Bolling replied.

Story continues below video.



Trump appears highly distressed with the whole affair. Snowden is in a Moscow airport, and the U.S. government wants him back to face espionage charges.

"This guy is really doing damage to this country, and he's also making us looks like dopes," Trump said. "We can't allow this guy to go out there and give out all our secrets and also embarrass us at every level. We should get him back and get him back now."

Last week on Fox, Trump said, "Spies in the old days used to be executed. ... There is still a thing called execution. ... Unless the retribution is swift and really strong, you're going to have other people coming out with more information than he's done."
