President Trump reacted to the news that Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s death sentence had been overturned this week by calling for the death penalty to be immediately reinstated.
“Death penalty! He killed and badly wounded many,” Trump tweeted on Saturday. “Justice!”
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit ordered a new penalty phase to Tsarnaev’s trial, arguing the first group of jurors were biased by the high publicity of the event.
Tsarnaev was sentenced in May 2015 to six death sentences after he and his older brother Tamerlan killed three and injured more than 260 people with a bomb at the Boston Marathon and later murdered an M.I.T. police officer as they fled law enforcement.
Democrats campaign to destroy our American justice system has never made more alarming inroads than in 2020, and the decision to attempt to vacate the death penalty for Tsarnaev is a wake-up call to the American people.
Trump denounced the move again in a recent campaign speech, declaring:
I see in Boston, where you have the animal that killed so many people during the Boston Marathon, they just sent his conviction for the death penalty back to the lower courts. So they’ll argue about that for a long time. It’s ridiculous. Think of that. It’s ridiculous.
