Trump Sparks Confusion After Suggesting He’s Ready To Send Troops Into Mexico To Fight Drug Cartels

People reacted with confusion after President Donald Trump suggested in a tweet that the U.S. is “ready and willing” to send troops into Mexico to fight drug cartels.

Trump’s tweet comes after a family with ties to Utah was killed in a gun battle near their home between the Chihuahua and Sonora cartels.

“A wonderful family and friends from Utah got caught between two vicious drug cartels, who were shooting at each other, with the result being many great American people killed, including young children, and some missing,” Trump tweeted.

“If Mexico needs or requests help in cleaning out these monsters,” he added, “the United States stands ready, willing & able to get involved and do the job quickly and effectively. The great new President of Mexico has made this a big issue, but the cartels have become so large and powerful that you sometimes need an army to defeat an army!”
