At least 9 Americans, including two 8-month-old babies, were just slaughtered in a cartel ambush in Mexico. This is a wake up call.
The president almost immediately responded. President Trump issued a public statement saying that now is the time to unite with Mexico’s new president to “wipe them off the face of the earth..”
Specifically, Trump wrote:
[Y]ou sometimes need an army to defeat an army…
This is the time for Mexico, with the help of the United States, to wage WAR on the drug cartels and wipe them off the face of the earth. We merely await a call from your great new president!”
I couldn’t agree more. Specifically, it’s time for the United States to designate these cartels as terrorist organizations because that’s exactly what they are.
Back in March, Trump agreed, answering a question about designating them as terrorist organizations by saying:
“We are. We are. We’re thinking about doing it very seriously. In fact, we’ve been thinking about it for a long time… As terrorists – as terrorist organizations, the answer is yes. They are.”
Let’s make it happen. If you slaughter Americans, you get slaughtered. That’s the way it ought to be.
-Question of the Day-
What should Donald Trump do to help wipe out the cartels?
