MORMONS MURDER IN MEXICO

Trump calls for ‘war’ on cartels

Trump calls for ‘war’ on cartels

President Donald Trump offered Tuesday to help Mexico hunt the killers of nine Mormon women and children shot dead in a lawless border area—and said the United States stood ready to back its southern neighbor in a “war” on the drug cartels.

Gunmen ambushed the members of the LeBaron family—a large clan of Mormons who emigrated to Mexico in the late 19th century—on a rural road Monday between the states of Sonora and Chihuahua, which border the United States.

Three women and six children were killed, including two twin babies, said relatives and Mexican officials. Six children were also wounded in the attack, which left the family’s three cars riddled with bullets and badly charred.

“If Mexico needs or requests help in cleaning out these monsters, the United States stands ready, willing & able to get involved and do the job quickly and effectively,” Trump wrote in a tweet.

He praised Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador for prioritizing the fight against drug trafficking, but said “the cartels have become so large and powerful that you sometimes need an army to defeat an army!

“This is the time for Mexico, with the help of the United States, to wage WAR on the drug cartels and wipe them off the face of the earth.”
