Trump Decides To Give Mexico A Chance To Handle Their Cartel Problem
Mexican Cartels have been killing Americans with practically no repercussions. Trump was made aware of the situation and was ready to label these cartels as terrorist groups last month, especially if the Mexican Government does not take action. Perhaps this is the wake-up call that Mexico needed. But now it appears Trump is going to give Mexico a chance to handle this on their own before taking the next step.
Trump talked about designating the Cartels as terrorists while being interviewed by Bill O’Reilly.
“Are you going to designate those cartels in Mexico as terror groups and start hitting them with drones and things like that?” O’Reilly asked.
“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.”
Trump recently issued an update via Twitter.
“All necessary work has been completed to declare Mexican Cartels terrorist organizations. Statutorily we are ready to do so. However, at the request of a man who I like and respect, and has worked so well with us, President Andres Manuel @LopezObrador_
we….….will temporarily hold off this designation and step up our joint efforts to deal decisively with these vicious and ever-growing organizations!”
Mexican President López Obrador weighed in on the decision.
“I celebrate that he has taken our opinion into account. There has to be cooperation with respect for our sovereignties, cooperation without interventionism. And I think it was a very good decision that he took today. We thank President Trump for respecting our decisions and for choosing to maintain a policy of good neighborliness, a policy of cooperation with us. He will always have, on our side, an open, frank, extended hand to continue moving forward together for the sake of our peoples and the good of our two nations.”
Mexico would be better off with American intervention when it comes to the cartels. But we will see if Mexico can handle this without the U.S. designating the cartels as terrorists.
