VIDEO: Laughters as Donald Trump brags to Bret Baier about granting Alice Johnson clemency during interview on Fox News

Donald Trump brags to Bret Baier about granting Alice Johnson clemency. (Read More Here)?

Baier informs him that she would be killed under his policy proposal of executing drug dealers.

Trump is caught off guard: "No, no. No. Under my pl–. Under that? UHHHHHHHHHHH..."

Donald Trump didn’t quite seem to grasp one of his own major policy proposals during a Fox News interview airing on Monday evening.

Trump last year said he would seek the death penalty for drug dealers if he wins next year’s election and returns to the White House.

But during the interview with Bret Baier, Trump boasted of giving a presidential pardon to Alice Johnson, who had been in prison for 21 years after being convicted for her role in a cocaine ring.

But he continued to struggle as he tried to reconcile the pardon with his proposal:

Trump gets confused about whether Alice Johnson would have been executed under his "death penalty for drug dealers" proposal.

He eventually says she no because "you wouldn’t go to the past," then says she would never "have been on that phone call" with the death penalty. pic.twitter.com/2FAyIO19P2

Trump’s critics slammed him over the exchange:

Huh?
Say what?
Who me?
Noooooo.
Really?
Ummm.
Ok, yes, but starting now.

“She wouldn’t have done it, if it was death penalty,” Trump said. “In other words, if it was death penalty, she wouldn’t have been on that phone call.”

Trump’s record on crime has been a point of criticism among some other contenders in the GOP primary field, even as the former president insists he would crack down on drug dealers and violent offenders if elected for a second term.

Multiple challengers have argued Trump’s signature criminal justice reform bill, the First Step Act, which was championed at the time by Trump and others and reduced mandatory minimum sentences, expanded credits for well-behaved prisoners looking for shorter sentences and aimed to reduce recidivism.
