Trump Graciously Helps Our Southern Neighbor In A Big Way
Mexican Cartels thrive due to all of the drugs they pump into the United States. These drugs kill somewhere in the range of 100k Americans every year. So when Bill O’Reilly asked Trump whether he would designate the cartels as terrorist groups, it was as Trump would put it, “a no-brainer.”
“President Donald Trump said on Tuesday in an interview with Bill O’Reilly that he is going to designate the Mexican drug cartels as terrorist organizations, a move that gives the government officials more resources to combat entities that receive the designation.
“One of the things that you’ve said to me … is that if another country murdered 100,000 Americans with guns we would go to war with that country,” O’Reilly said. “Yet, the Mexican drug cartels kill more than 100,000 Americans every year by the importation of dangerous narcotics.”
“I don’t want to say what I am going to do, but they will be designated,” Trump responded. “I’ve already offered Mexico … to let us go in and clean it out and he so far has rejected the offer but at some point something has to be done. Look, we are losing 100,000 people a year to what is happening and what is coming through on Mexico.”
“So you are going to designate the Mexican cartels as terror groups?” O’Reilly pressed.
“Yeah, I will be,” Trump responded. “I have been working on that for the last 90 days. You know, designation is not that easy, you have to go through a process, and we are well into that process.”
Mexican officials were not happy about this decision.
“Mexico’s foreign minister, Marcelo Ebrard, said on Monday he did not expect the United States to designate Mexican drug cartels as terrorist groups to allow Washington to intervene south of the border to combat them.
The minister was speaking a day after a formal petition was posted on the White House’s website that seeks to designate unspecified Mexican drug cartels as “terrorist organizations.”
“I don’t think the United States will pursue this path because we’re working together, and I don’t think they would want to open up the possibility of Mexico invoking the same legal principles,” Ebrard told reporters.”
This can only help Mexico as we would be able to render aid in taking down drug kingpins that have been plaguing not only our country but theirs as well. They should be thanking Trump and welcoming this designation.
