President Trump sent a few tweets Tuesday morning in response to the news of American families that were killed in northern Mexico at the hands of cartel members.
Rhonita Maria LeBaron, her 6-month-old twin babies, and two other children were killed during an ambush in the Mexican state of Sonora on Monday. Other victims included Christina Langford Johnson, Dawna Langford and two of her children.
....monsters, 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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 5, 2019
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. We merely await a call from your great new president!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 5, 2019
Lafe Langford Jr., Dawna's nephew, posted video of the burnt-out, bullet-ridden vehicle on Facebook.
"Attention all of the World. We are a community of US citizens that live and operate between Mexico and the United States we are under attack as we speak by the cartels in Mexico... We have been petitioning the American embassies in Mexico all day long to no Avail," Langford wrote.
