Trump plans to send squads to Mexico to kill cartel leaders: Rolling Stone

MEXICO CITY (apro).- If he wins a second term in November, magnate Donald Trump plans to send “extermination teams” to Mexico to eliminate the leaders of the cartels, publishes a report in the American magazine Rolling Stone.

The former president would send these squads “with or without the support of the government of Mexico.”

The Republican has told those close to him of his plans to covertly send special forces to Mexico to assassinate drug traffickers, according to sources cited by the publication.

Trump wants to covertly deploy US assassination squads in Mexico soon after he takes office again, according to three people who have discussed the matter with the former US president.

Rolling Stone recalled that during and after his presidency, the magnate has floated different ideas to bomb or invade Mexico in response to the fentanyl crisis and to “wage war” against drug cartels.

As president, Rolling Stone notes, Trump even thought it was possible to bomb cartel drug labs and then potentially attribute the attacks to another country, according to his former Secretary of Defense, Mark Esper.

What was once a fringe notion that senior Trump administration officials quickly decided to dismiss has now become a mainstream GOP policy proposal, including among influential Republican lawmakers on Capitol Hill and conservative think tanks, the note details.

Trump is currently campaigning for the White House on a public promise to, in his words, “make appropriate use of Special Forces, cyber warfare and other overt and covert actions to inflict maximum damage on leaders, infrastructure and cartel operations,” added the text signed by Asawin Suebsaeng.
