Mexican cartel pledges to make Trump pay for planned tunnels


CULIACAN, SINALOA – Ismael Zambada García, head of the Sinoala Cartel, said Monday that planned tunnels from Mexico to the United States to traffic drugs and other illegal goods will be paid for by Donald Trump.

“All of our future tunnels will be paid for by Donald Trump and his family,” García wrote in a statement released online. “With our connections around the States, we will have no problem finding ways to pin the cost exclusively on the President.”

The statement comes after President Trump has repeatedly said that a planned border wall will be paid for by Mexico.

President Trump reportedly dismissed García’s statement.

“Ridiculous,” he said. “There’s no way that’s going to happen.”
