Trump Is Using Escaped Drug Lord El Chapo As His Latest Mexican Piñata

trumpIf this weekend was any indication, 2016 GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump won’t be backing down from his various comments about Mexico and illegal immigration anytime soon. Hell, even his own adviser is defending the talking point in interviews. Immigration has become his ticket’s primary platform — and it’s sadly working (at least at the early polls).

So how could Trump possibly add to the already raging fire that is his candidacy’s developing foreign policy? If the words “olive branch” occurred to you, then you’d be very, very wrong. At least, that’s according to reports from a speech Trump gave in Los Angeles, where he allegedly said “we should have invaded Mexico” instead of Iraq.

Then, he went on to further outline what he thinks everybody else would do with Guzman:

I’m still undecided which party this paints a worsening picture of — Trump himself, or the registered voters who’ve repeatedly chosen him in recent national polls.
