After Saying He Would Kick ‘El Chapo’s Ass,’ Trump Calls FBI Over Threats From Cartel Boss
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says he’s contacted the FBI after receiving death threats from the family of escaped cartel leader El Chapo.
Over the weekend, Trump tweeted that he would kick El Chapo’s ass.
“Could you envision Jeb Bush or Hillary Clinton negotiating with ‘El Chapo,’ the Mexican drug lord who escaped from prison?”
“Trump, however, would kick his ass!” Trump declared
It’s unclear why Hillary or Jeb would be negotiating with a cartel boss called El Chapo in this hypothetical scenario.
After his tweets went viral, El Chapo’s son tweeted him in Spanish to warn that he would eat his words.
“Keep f*cking around and I’m gonna make you swallow your bitch words you f*cking whitey milksh*tter,” he wrote.
Trump says he contacted the FBI over the threat but told TMZ that he is not backing down.
“I’m fighting for much more than myself,” Trump said. “I’m fighting for the future of our country which is being overrun by criminals. You can’t be intimidated. It’s too important.”
