Would you kill Trump for $100 million?
The world’s most dangerous drug lord, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, who escaped from a Mexican prison last year, is allegedly offering the sizable bounty to whoever brings him Donald Trump, dead or alive.
El Chapo is, apparently, livid that Trump has made disparaging remarks about Mexicans and the illegal immigrants that flood to America–referring to them as rapists and criminals.
Unaware of the irony, Mexico’s most famous criminal takes such offense with the characterization of Mexicans as criminals, allegedly put out the hit earlier this week.
“He was mad,” explained an unnamed Mexican inmate, who was close to Guzman. “He wants Donald Trump dead and will pay any amount of money to have Donald Trump’s head.
So far, Trump has continued to campaign and has, seemingly, brushed off the threats. But he has heightened security over the last few weeks, according to news reports. He hired more security personnel and now wears a bulletproof vest when he campaigns.
This isn’t the first time Trump has made enemies with El Chapo and his family.
Trump had, previously, used El Chapo–and his power and his subsequent escape from Mexican prison–as evidence of Mexico’s dysfunction as a nation and why, thus, the people of Mexico should not be allowed to enter America unfettered.
In July, that led to a Twitter war with El Chapo’s son, Joaquin Guzman Loera, who managed his father’s account at the time.
That ended with the younger Guzman declaring, “I’m going to make you swallow your b*tch words, you f***ing whitey milksh****r.”
However, El Chapo’s $100 million bounty could prove that he’s escalating the feud–and it remains to be seen if Trump’s security is up to the task of defending their candidate from one of the most dangerous men on the planet.
