FINALLY. Someone compared the drug cartels to terrorism. I must say, I’m overjoyed that it’s Trump steering this ship.
“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.”
Trump is showing a commendable amount of resilience –
O’Reilly responded, “And wait to see, they’ll attack you for doing that.”
“I don’t care,” Trump responded. “I’m attacked on everything.”
It’s true… you could be the ripest peach in the world and there’s always going to be someone who hates Donald Trump (or peaches – however the saying goes).
Now Trump just has to work on accurately designating the Mexican cartels as terror groups.
“Satisfying the criteria should not be difficult for the Trump administration to do as the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) reports that Mexican Transnational Criminal Organizations (TCOs) — which is the technical term for the Mexican drug cartels — “remain the greatest criminal drug threat to the United States; no other group is currently positioned to challenge them.”
If Trump is successful in doing so, it will essentially aid in killing several birds with only one stone, ranging from cracking down on the mass amounts of fentanyl China supplies, strikes at illegal immigration, strikes at the facilitation of drug and human trafficking, and plenty more.
