El Chapo Opens Door for Trump to Justify his Controversial Remark

Donald Trump’s controversial comment that “the worst elements in Mexico are being pushed into the United States by the Mexican government,” has recently sparked a loud controversy. He never dragged himself back from his “belief” that “the largest suppliers of heroin, cocaine and other illicit drugs are Mexican cartels that arrange to have Mexican immigrants trying to cross the borders and smuggle in the drugs…” Rather, he keeps reaffirming his allegations with new updates. 

Trump’s controversial remarks turned him into a viral troll and enraged the Latino community, and the unbreakable conservative presidential candidate Donald Trump never rescinded his comment. With the escape of El Chapo, Trump has been on the move to justify his earlier remark and has demanded that critics apologize to him. On his Twitter account, which is presumably run by his son, Trump posted, “When will people, and the media, start to apologize to me for my statement, ‘Mexico is sending…,’ which turned out to be true? El Chapo.” 

Over the last few days, Donald Trump has continued to speak out over the escape of Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman. On July 13, Trump reiterated his beliefs in another tweet: “El Chapo and the Mexican drug cartels use the border unimpeded like it was a vacuum cleaner, sucking drugs and death right into the U.S.” He didn’t forget to poke his fellow Republican contender Jeb Bush or former Secretary of State, Democratic Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton. He tweeted, “Can you envision Jeb Bush or Hillary Clinton negotiating with 'El Chapo', the Mexican drug lord who escaped from prison?”

Trump, however, appeared strong and promised to “kick his [El Chapo’s] ass!” until the Twitter account allegedly belonging to El Chapo threatened to kidnap Trump’s daughter. Trump reported this to the FBI, and they are now working on the threat. The threat is largely believed to be a hoax, but for Trump the El Chapo issue has somehow become larger than his presidential bid.

 The escape of drug king El Chapo and his alleged appearance on Twitter to threaten Trump helped the presidential hopeful to justify his earlier controversial comment. However, he will still have much to do to win Latino votes.  The community was apparently hurt and the multi-platinum award-winning artist Pitbull also had a heavy-handed warning for Donald Trump on Thursday night: “Watch out for El Chapo!”
