Mexico doesn’t appear happy now that Trump has begun to implement the border wall and tax policies he threatened against the nation during his campaign. Now one ex-official is suggesting drastic measures as retaliation.
Former Secretary of Foreign Affairs Jorge Castañeda has called on Mexico to punish President Trump for his actions on deporting illegal immigrants and building a border wall by allowing criminal cartels to run drugs into the United States.
During an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, Castañeda suggested that drug cartels could be unleashed on the U.S. as retribution for Trump’s aggressive stance towards Mexico.
“Mexico has a lot of negotiating chips in this matter, Fareed, but it also has measures we could take in other areas,” said Castañeda. “For example, the drugs that come through Mexico from South America, or the drugs that are produced here in Mexico all go to the United States. This is not our problem. We have been cooperating with the United States for many years on these issues because they’ve asked us to and because we have a friendly, trustful relationship. If that relationship disappears, the reasons for cooperation also disappear.”
This “negotiation” reads more like a threat than anything else. It seems Casteñeda is suggesting that Mexico unleash the drug cartels on American civilians. If that’s the case, it’s all the more reason to get started on that wall.
