Cartel drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman may be sitting in a Mexican prison, but it hasn’t seemed to stop him from tweeting his outrage about Donald Trump’s presidential win.
On Thursday he tweeted, “The representative of hatred, confrontation, racism, persecution and misogyny that is so palpable in the world won. What a sad situation for everyone.” @ElChap0Guzman, from El Chapo’s “official” account.
The 61-year-old head of the Sinaloa cartel is awaiting extradition to the United States.
This isn’t the first time Trump has gotten tweets from El Chapo.
Last July, after escaping from prison, El Chapo tweeted, “Keep f--king around, and I’ll make you eat all of your godd--n words, f--king whitey f----t @realDonaldTrump,” causing the FBI to investigate the threat against the then candidate.
Trump, never one to miss an opportunity to return a tweet, responded saying he would “kick his a**.”
El Chapo’s Twitter page has over 600K followers.
The account has been active since 2012. Many of the tweets are about Trump and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto.
Although Trump almost certainly has nothing to fear from @ElChap0Guzman, a Twitter account with over half a million followers and a huge outpouring of support could be pretty scary if you’re on the other end of the threats.
