Donald Trump threatened to destroy the career of a Texas state senator who introduced legislation that would roll back the controversial practice known as asset forfeiture and require that an individual be convicted of a crime before their assets could be taken away from them. Trump was holding a round table with sheriff's at the White House when a sheriff from a small county in Texas complained about the state senators proposed legislation, which led Trump to say “[w]ho is the state senator? Do you want to give his name? We’ll destroy his career.”
