News is spreading like wildfire nationwide and even around the world. President Trump just pulled the trigger on a major initiative, and Democrats like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi hate it.
During an interview with Bill O’Reilly on billoreilly.com, Trump said that Mexican drug cartels could be designated as Foreign Terrorist Organizations, otherwise known as FTOs. “They will be designated,” he declared.
I have offered him (the Mexican president) to let us go in and clean it out,” Trump continued. “He, so far, has rejected the offer. But at some point, something has to be done.”
O’Reilly noted during the interview that Mexican drug cartels “kill more than 100,000 Americans every year by the importation of dangerous narcotics,” and this is something Trump wants to be resolved immediately.
In fact, Trump said, he has been working on getting terrorist designations “for the last 90 days.” While it takes some time to get it done, the process is well underway.
Unfortunately, as pointed out previously, the Mexican government remains resistant to the idea and you have to wonder why. It is possible that Mexican leaders have to publicly oppose it or the cartels will target them.
