Now this is what Twitter was made for!
After Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman escaped from prison Saturday in south central Mexico, authorities started a nationwide manhunt for the notorious drug lord, shutting down airports and desperately searching for the kingpin.
In the meantime, Donald Trump was busy getting in on the action, calling out El Chapo with a particularly incendiary tweet:
The U.S. will invite El Chapo, the Mexican drug lord who just escaped prison, to become a U.S. citizen because our “leaders” can’t say no!

An alleged Twitter account belonging to El Chapo’s son fought back though, tweeting (in Spanish) an NSFW expletive laden retort:
The (very rough) translation of Guzman Loera’s tweet:
“Keep f***ing around and I’m gonna make you swallow your bitch words you f***ing whitey milks***tter.”
The last part is a homophobic slur, BTW.
Now, Trump is fighting back in the war of words with his own comments, saying to reporters about El Chapo’s threats:
“I’m fighting for much more than myself. I’m fighting for the future of our country which is being overrun by criminals. You can’t be intimidated. It’s too important.”
Good luck with that!
The Donald seems to be a particularly single-noted presidential candidate — but at least he’s not backing down!
What do U think — did The Donald bite off more than he can chew with this little spat?!
