Over the next couple of weeks I will be re-posting some of my columns written about Donald Trump in the 18 months leading up to his election as the 45th President of The United States. This is part of that series:

Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman, head of powerful Sinaloa Cartel, is on the run after excaping a Mexican prison by using a tunnel that led to the floor of his cell.

El Chapo has now reportedly taken to Twitter to gloat about escape online and he also began to make threats to Donald Trump. Trump had criticized El Chapo’s escape as more evidence of the corruption of the Mexican government.

According to TMZ and other on-line reports Trump has called in the FBI to investigate the threats made against him by the billionaire drug king pin.

It seems Trump has been accurate about illegal aliens in America as evidenced by the random murder of 32 year old Kate Steinle in San Francisco earlier this month and now his jabs at the Mexican government for corruption seemed to be corroborated.

Whether or not Trump is a credible candidate for president remains to be seen but for now make no mistake he is right about the illegal alien problem and the corruption of Mexican politicians on the payroll of drug dealers like El Chapo.
