Unconfirmed reports resurfaced Tuesday that escaped Mexican drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán allegedly put a $100 million bounty on Donald Trump’s head and this isn’t the first the drug kingpin and the GOP frontrunner have traded barbs.
The world’s most dangerous drug lord wants Trump dead or alive – if the reports are true, and who knows at this point.
El Chapo reportedly told inmates before he escaped from prison that he was offended by Trump’s racist remarks about Mexican immigrants, according to Telesur.
“He was mad. He wants Donald Trump dead and will pay any amount of money if meant he could have Donald Trump’s head,” an anonymous inmate told Most Extreme News, which has a reputation as a satirical news site – meaning this could just be another hoax.
When El Chapo escaped, the hotel magnate released a statement saying that “corrupt Mexican officials obviously let him go a second time.”
Naturally, Trump took to his Twitter account the first time the two traded jabs at each other. Trump thinks he’s a badass and could kick El Chapo’s butt.
SURE you would, Mr. Trump.
The tweet below is supposedly from the drug lord’s Twitter account. Doesn’t everyone have a Twitter account these days?
“Trump is an asshole,” the account tweeted in August.
Trump es un pendejo.

El Chapo escaped prison in 2001 and was only recaptured last year. And now, Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán remains free despite an intense manhunt and a multimillion-dollar bounty.
Like I said, everyone has a Twitter account, even God.
Again, the threat is unconfirmed, and likely a false report – although quite a few outlets are reporting it.
El Chapo isn’t exactly disliked in his hometown.
“He is not a person who threatens, intimidates,” Francisco Villa Gurrola, a pastor in Guzmán’s home municipality of Badiraguato, told Vice News.
“He knows how to converse, knows how to speak. As an individual, I recognize him as a good person.”
“We are happy because the boss of Culiacan, of all Sinaloa, got out. We are cheerful,” Jose Antonio Medina told Vice, a few days after the escape.
Guzmán is “a normal guy, very good with people,” said Maria, a store owner.
“When somebody needs something, he helps them.”
And he possibly threatens to kill people.
Meanwhile, El Chapo has a bounty out on him. According to the International Business Times, Mexico was offering up to $3.8 million and the U.S. pledged up to $5 million for information leading to his capture.
