Lightroom: Delete photos in CC and also delete them in Classic

I deleted a bunch of rejected photos in Lightroom CC. In LR Classic however these photos are still there. I learned that this is by design.
For me this is super annoying because if I delete a photo I usually have a good reason for it and I never want to see it again anywhere. I want to keep CC and Classic in sync.

So is there a way to delete these photos also in Classic in an automated or at least semi-automated way?

Thanks

I think the best you can do is to delete the photos from LR Classic rather than LR CC.  In any source except All Synced Photographs, select the photos to be deleted and do Photo > Remove Photo (delete key) and choose Delete From Disk.   This will remove the photos from LR Classic as well as LR CC.
