Trump reportedly reaches out to FBI after threat from drug lord’s son

Trump reportedly reaches out to FBI after threat from drug lord’s son

When Twitter wars get heated

Sometimes publicly threatening to “kick someone’s ass” elicits a nasty response.

Twitter seems to be Donald Trump’s favorite weapon of choice. In his latest social media tear, Trump targeted Mexican drug lord, ‘El Chapo.’

And then Trump, referring to himself in the third person, proceeded to throw down with El Chapo:

Monday, Hollywood gossip site TMZ reported that an individual claiming to be the son of El Chapo, responded to Trumps tweets by threatening Trump right back. Trump then indicated he was contacting the FBI.

Donald Trump tells TMZ he is contacting the FBI to investigate threats just made by a man claiming to be the son of escaped Mexican drug lord El Chapo.

Trump is reacting to a tweet reportedly made by El Chapo’s son, in which he blasts Trump for saying El Chapo is “everything that’s wrong with Mexico.”

The tweet was written in Spanish, with the rough English translation, “Keep f***ing around and I’m gonna make you swallow your bitch words you f***ing whitey milks***tter (that’s a homophobic slur).”

Trump tells TMZ he’s not backing down, saying, “I’m fighting for much more than myself. I’m fighting for the future of our country which is being overrun by criminals.” He adds, “You can’t be intimidated. It’s too important.”

Let us pause for a moment to reflect on the current state of domestic politics where posts include words like, “kicking ass,” “FBI,” “Mexican Drug Lord,” “Twitter fight,” and Donald Trump simultaneously and unironically.

Mr. Trump can afford the world’s best bodyguards. Call the good people at whatever Blackwater calls themselves these days, Donald.

But calling the FBI makes you look like a wuss, and coming a day after you were speaking truth to power, that’s not a good political strategy.

    It doesn’t make him look like a wuss. It’s the best thing to do; document the threats.

    And it’s highlighted exactly the type of individual we’re dealing with in Mexico.

    Just because you haven’t met any, doesn’t mean they don’t exist. Lots of them.

    Violent, temperamental criminals who think nothing of knifing you in the street because that’s how they live at “home”. That’s what it takes in their “community”.

    They have a thinner veneer of “civilization” than just about anyone raised in the US.

      Mexico is a one-party state. I think that makes Mexico a Facist country doesn’t it?

    Calling the FBI after over six years of Obamafication makes little sense.

    Trump should take threats from these animals seriously, and engage serious security.

I am a Conservative and a life long Republican.
Trump is neither. He has given 10s of thousands of dollars to Hillary and the Clinton foundation along with other liberal Democrats in the recent years.

Trump is using the illegal – Border as a issue, not because he believes what he is saying but to psych up the public who are easily taken in for his own ego.
It is all about Donald.

Lets see what Trump really says about illegals and Republicans in 2012

Trump Hit Romney for Being Too Tough and Too Alienating to Hispanics on Immigration

By Rich Lowry — July 9, 2015

Donald Trump is now the super-hawk on immigration. It wasn’t always so, and not so long ago. A Newsmax article from November 2012 on his views on what went wrong in the election is making the rounds.

Back then, Trump’s view on immigration was utterly conventional–he wanted a “comprehensive solution” to accommodate immigrants who want to be “wonderful productive citizens,” and thought Romney’s policy of attrition (infamously described as self-deportation) was “maniacal” and mean-spirited:

The Republican Party will continue to lose presidential elections if it comes across as mean-spirited and unwelcoming toward people of color, Donald Trump tells Newsmax.

Whether intended or not, comments and policies of Mitt Romney and other Republican candidates during this election were seen by Hispanics and Asians as hostile to them, Trump says.

Trump is Expediency on steroids

    Perhaps Trump is capable of learning from his mistakes, and of changing his mind when developments make that appropriate.

    The recent atrocities by foreign criminals had not occurred in 2012. No matter what the situation back then, Trump isn’t willing to ignore these crimes now. Neither are some voters.

    Of course changing his mind to account for a changing situation might make Trump a poor Party man, but that’s not really a fault.

      Erudite Mavin in reply to tom swift. | July 13, 2015 at 11:37 pm

      (The recent atrocities by foreign criminals had not occurred in 2012)

      Not only atrocities have been committed but have been for years and years.

      I am sitting around 15 miles north from the largest and busiest port of entry in the world, San Diego – Tijuana, Mexico.

      Lets take just the past 10 years. In Tijuana, dozens had their heads cut off. Bodies hung from freeway overpasses.
      Many kidnappings, and that is just for starters.

      You can spin what you assume about Trump, but I have followed politics and world affairs for over 50 years.
      The cult of Trump will not last long. Adults already see through his hypocrisy.

      Trump is the Democrat’s dream

      Erudite Mavin in reply to tom swift. | July 13, 2015 at 11:41 pm

      and yes, illegals for years have committed crimes including
      killings here

      Estragon in reply to tom swift. | July 14, 2015 at 1:45 am

      Trump has learned some things, all right, the most prominent being self-promotion which he seems to have perfected.

      The other is that if you are loud enough, some people don’t bother checking your record too closely.

It is said (by me, at least) that the quality of a man’s enemies says much more about his character than the quality of those who claim to be his friends. Having a Mexican drug lord as an avowed enemy makes Trump a much more acceptable candidate in my own humble opinion.

Subotai Bahadur | July 13, 2015 at 11:11 pm

We have death threats in play with Donald Trump. And his enemies include Leftists [including mainstream Democrats], DIABLO Republicans, and Mexican drug lords and/or other illegal invaders. It would be an interesting theoretical discussion as to the probable reaction if someone got through Trump’s security and carried out an attack. One could include alternate scenarios as to the success of the attack. What would the reaction in various groups in this country be for an attack by each threat group?

For those with a historical bent, I offer the story of Jose Calvo-Sotelo in Spain to start the discussion.

The only question I have:

Is our new Attorney General in charge of the DoJ – who run the FBI – going to do anything about it? If it were still Holder, I’d bet he’d be up to letting this one become another incident of, “I had no idea…..”

The FBI is precisely the agency to assess and address threats of violence to an American citizen and presidential candidate.

    Estragon in reply to n.n. | July 14, 2015 at 1:47 am

    25 years ago, maybe. Today, it’s a PC Democratic job corps.

    There is a reason Presidents and candidates are protected by the Secret Service and not FBI agents. And the Secret Service is no great shakes lately, either.

“Donald Trump tells TMZ…”

Has Trump actually registered as a presidential candidate?

Henry Hawkins | July 14, 2015 at 1:54 pm

I’m waiting for El Chapo to kidnap Trump and smuggle him into a Mexican prison to serve his time for him.

    DaveGinOly in reply to Henry Hawkins. | July 14, 2015 at 6:05 pm

    “Smuggle” being the operative word. Unlike this country, Mexico doesn’t take kindly to illegal crossings of its border.

Curious how el Chapo escapes prison (just in time to threaten Trump) just as Obama visits a federal prison to recruit street thugs for the democRat party.

There are no coincidences in this game of life and death and freedom.

The GOP, in its supreme idiocy and incompetence and corruption, created the vacuum that Trump is filling – just like George Bush created the vacuum the lunatic left filled right up, and topped it off with Barack Hussein Obama (or whoever he really is.)

Of course, in our collective idiocy, we tolerate the likes of Boehner/Prebus/McConnell leading the GOP.

Trump is an opportunist, but has morphed into a patriot, and circumstances just might force him to greatness.
