Trump suggests helping Mexico wage war against drug cartels


President Donald Trump suggested that the U.S. assist Mexico in waging “WAR” against drug cartels and “white them off the face of the earth” after gunmen shot and killed 9 Americans in the state of Sonora.

It is believed that those rival drug cartels mistakenly shot at a caravan of 3 SUV’s killing the nine and wounded others, all members of the same family traveling back to the U.S. to attend a wedding.

Several of the dead were found in separate locations, and others are said to have been kidnapped after the initial ambush, so the argument that this was a case of mistaken identity can easily be dismissed.
