Mexico Refuses President Trump’s Offer To Help Fight Cartels, They’ll Do This Instead

President Trump offered to go to battle alongside with Mexico following the attack by Mexican drug cartels in Mexico that left 9 Americans dead, including 6 children. President Trump is eager to retaliate against these lawless drug cartels and put an end to the fears of the Mexican people through the ruthless cartels.

Mexico’s President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador instead rejected President Trump’s offer to take on the cartels, because he had already determined that there was an even better way to deal with these money-hungry, blood-thirsty, extremely violent drug cartels. He says “hugs, not bullets” is the answer.

President Obrador said, “It was lamentable, painful because children died, but do we want to resolve the problem the same way (as previous administrations)? By declaring war? That, in the case of our country, showed that it does not work. That was a failure. It caused more violence.”

“We are carrying out a different policy because the policy that was applied during 36 years was a resounding failure and it caused a lot of damage, a lot of sadness, a lot of deaths, a lot of losses for Mexicans. We will not continue with the same and we will show that our proposal works, despite it not being easy. We are confident that we will achieve good results.”

Does Obrador seriously think that taking a pacifist position with the drug cartels will just magically make them start doing the right thing? He’s lost his mind.

According to Fox News,

All the victims are believed to be members of the extended LeBaron family, who live in a religious community in La Mora, northern Mexico, a decades-old settlement in Sonora state founded as part of an offshoot of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints around 70 miles south of the U.S.-Mexico border.

Mexican officials announced late Tuesday that a suspect was arrested near the Arizona-Mexico border in connection to the deaths. The suspect was holding two hostages who were bound and gagged inside a vehicle, which was bulletproof and contained four assault-type rifles, officials said.
