The social media sphere has erupted with jokes aimed at Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump now that Mexico’s most dangerous drug lord, Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman Loera, escaped prison over the weekend. Netizens are having a blast over Trump-El Chapo memes, saying that El Chapo had actually escaped prison to go after Trump.


El Chapo is going after Donald Trump

On July 12, Trump tweeted that escape of notorious drug lord El Chapo only proved his controversial comments against Mexicans. Trump’s tweet went, “Mexico’s biggest drug lord escapes from jail. Unbelievable corruption and USA is paying the price. I told you so!”

It has to be recalled that Trump was condemned over racist comments he made during his official launch of his presidential bid in June. In his speech, he said illegal migrants coming from Mexico were “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 in his speech.

On Sunday, netizens went creative with their Trump-El Chapo memes.

Trump is non-stop

In an exclusive interview with The Washington Post’s Robert Costa aboard his private jet, Trump said that rapist “is a very rough word” but that “it’s okay to use.” He defended his controversial remark saying that “it wasn’t a big part of my announcement speech – a small paragraph.”

“The Democrats and the enemies lined up and they criticized me for one line where I said Mexico is ending, I said Mexico is sending. I didn’t say people are coming over and they’re bad people,” Trump told Costa.
