You won’t believe which country Donald Trump hit with this game-changing ultimatum
One of America’s enemies just made a giant mistake.
They engaged in an atrocity that had President Trump seeing red.
And you won’t believe which country Donald Trump hit with this game-changing ultimatum.
Americans were horrified to learn of the news that nine members of an American family living in the La Mora settlement in Mexico were senselessly murdered in an ambush by the Mexican drug cartel.
Six children were among those savagely murdered.
Donald Trump was furious.
The President tweeted that it was time for Mexico to go to war to clean out the drug cartels and that the United States stood ready to assist in ending this scourge once and for all.
“This is the time for Mexico, with the help of the United States, to wage WAR on the drug cartels and wipe them off the face of the earth,” he wrote on Twitter.
Trump’s remarks were sparked by news of American citizens getting slaughtered in Mexico, after getting caught in the crossfire of a cartel battle in the border state of Sonora. Relatives have said at least nine U.S. citizens were killed including six children of which two were seven-month-old twins, according to CBS News.
Trump urged Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador to ask for his assistance.
“If Mexico needs or requests help in cleaning out these monsters, the United States stands ready, willing and able to get involved and do the job quickly and effectively,” Trump wrote.
Donald Trump has often cited the threat of drug smuggling and violence from Mexican drug cartels as one reason America needs a border.
After this atrocity, no one is arguing that Mexican drug cartels present a threat to Americans.
The only remaining question is what to do about it.
