Mexican drug trafficker Joaquín Guzmán is offering a $100 million bounty for anyone who can bring him Donald Trump, dead or alive. Known as El Chapo (The Shorty) because of his small stature, is infamous for his multiple prison breaks and involvement in the Mexican cartel. El Chapo was recently incarcerated February of 2014 after being on the run for over a decade from his first prison escape. While incarcerated, El Chapo escaped again last week on July 9th. There is currently a bounty set for El Chapo at $60 million MXN or $3 million USD. So far seven prison employees have been arrested in connection with El Chapo’s escape.
According to informants close to El Chapo, the drug lord was offended and furious with Donald Trump’s racists allegations and plans of a Great Wall dividing the United States and Mexico. The bounty was set weeks prior to El Chapo’s escape with the help of other members of the Mexican cartel. According to fellow inmates, El Chapo was very vocal about his disdain for Trump, citing that El Chapo often spoke about murdering Trump and found pleasure in masterminding an assassination.
“He was mad. He wants Donald Trump dead and will pay any amount of money if meant he could have Donald Trump’s head” explains an unnamed inmate. Donald Trump is apparently aware of the bounty and has beefed up his security team and has also began wearing a bullet proof vest. Despite fearing for his safety, Trump still plans to run for president in 2016.
