A rabbit likes to dig near the moles home
The mole and rabbit families ACT like they are enemy but have mutual financial connections
The mole says make sure no scorpions access your dig sites
Rabbit says ok we will keep eye out mole for the scorpions dirty stings
So the rabbits and moles coexist keeping the scorpion out
Next thing the moles changed interest says we are building over your dig sites rabbits!
The rabbits are upset and disturbed to the point the consider leasing dig sites to scorpions since the moles want to act out?
Now the rabbits moles feuding and scorpions leasing dig sites straight to mole world

Good call. If there was any doubt that the cartels have their hands up the spine of the Mexican government, that can be put to rest. Nietos 12% approval rating also coincides with the people of Mexico having the same ideas.
Border states and towns, be safe.

Actually, he's saying the exact opposite if people actually listen to the clip. He's pointing out the truth, which is that the vast majority of drugs that flow through Mexico are headed for the US. And people here may not know this but a lot of the US's foreign aid to Mexico is for fighting the cartels and flow of drugs into the country. In fact, here's a simple list showing how our aid to Mexico was allocated in 2012 (HERE):
Child Survival and Health: -$12,200
Department of Defense Security Assistance: $39,854
Development Assistance: $17.9 million
Economic Support Fund/Security Support Assistance: $40.8 million
Global Health and Child Survival: $3.89 million
Narcotics Control: $27.6 million
Nonproliferation, Anti-Terrorism, Demining and Related: $7.07 million
Other Active Grant Programs: $15.4 million
Other State Assistance: $2.7 million
Other USAID Assistance: $2,764
Other USDA Assistance: $372,914
Peace Corps: $2 million
Military Assistance, Total: $91.7 million
So any wedge between the 2 countries would obviously influence things like this, seeing as the US wouldn't send the money to help Mexico fight the cartels and Mexico would have no incentive to fight the cartels to help the US war on drugs. Remember, Mexico's been fighting a brutal war against the cartels since 2006-ish.
Also, since when did Americans not like drugs from Mexico? I don't use recreational drugs of any kind. But the last time I checked, cartels, gangs, local dealers, and organized crime families sell so many drugs here simply because Americans keep demanding them! And how many people actually check to see where your recreational drugs were grown/manufactured or imported from? If anything, a flood of those products into the American market would cause the prices to collapse, which I doubt many drug users here would object to.
Yes, he was stating the truth and I find it hard to believe that anyone doesn't object to it and are actually cheering it on. The man is threatening our country by sending more drug and gang violence? Do people really hate everything Trump does that blindly ? They show absolutely no understanding or knowledge on what type of criminality illegally crosses the border, including human trafficking. They have no clue what kind of violence those cartel perform on the Mexican people and in the US as well. Drugs such as heroine ruin lives and he's bragging about sending more for our youth to kill themselves with. The United states has it's sovereign right to protect its borders and its people with existing laws.
