Remember Mexico’s President who hates President Donald Trump? Well, it just so happens that he is a crook who takes money from the Mexican drug cartels…
Breitbart Texas reported:
Many of Mexico’s top leaders are linked to the brutal drug cartels overrunning their country. As Mexico slips further into a failed narco-state, top politicians’ links with drug cartels possibly help explain why.
1. Enrique Peña Nieto
Despite his many campaign promises, the current Mexican president has been unable to put a halt to the raging cartel violence taking place in his country; or has he been unwilling?
As a candidate and during his term in office, Peña Nieto has openly supported many of the cartel linked politicians who are now in trouble with the law. As Breitbart Texas reported, operators from the Juarez Cartel allegedly funneled illicit funds into Peña Nieto’s 2012 presidential bid. The funds were used to buy cash cards that were then given to citizens in exchange for their votes. The scandal became known as Monexgate and was originally discovered by famed Mexican journalist Carmen Aristegui.
Why did the mainstream media not report this when Trump and Nieto met?
Better yet, why doesn’t the media report on this as it could clearly be a factor in why Mexico doesn’t want the border wall?
So much corruption!
