El Chapo Says He Can’t Get Fair Trial in US Because of Donald Trump
And just think… It wasn’t that long ago that El Chapo was threatening to murder Donald Trump.
The Huffington Post reported:
El Chapo’s lawyers are fighting efforts to extradite their client, the world’s most notorious drug kingpin, to the United States, where he would face a number of federal charges that include drug trafficking and murder.
They argue that their client, Joaquin Guzmán Loera, wouldn’t receive a fair trial in the U.S. because of a hostile environment toward Mexicans. To prove their point, they are citing the anti-Mexican rhetoric of GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, according to The New York Times.
Trump, the current Republican frontrunner, built his campaign upon his hostility toward Mexicans. At his speech announcing his run for president, Trump compared Mexican immigrants to rapists.
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best… They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people,” he said.
