Donald Trump, offered military assistance to Mexico to start a “war” against drug trafficking cartels, after an armed group assassinated a Mormon family narcos, Mexico American Chihuahua, to the north of Mexico City.

“It is time for Mexico, with US help, to wage war against drug cartels and wipe off the face of the earth. We're just waiting for the call of his great new president”, Trump wrote in his twitter account.

The president of Mexico, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, He thanked Trump made the statement and according to the Mexican foreign minister said, Marcelo Ebrard, in a telephone call that held both presidents, Lopez Obrador promised to do justice for the murder of nine members of the LeBaron family.

This is not the first time the family, known in northern Mexico for being an activist group against drug trafficking in the country, undergoes an attack. In 2009, several members of the clan were kidnapped and killed, also for drug traffickers.

Ten years later, the sad history repeats itself. The narcos ambushed several vehicles they were driving women and children, and they attacked shots. Mexican authorities said five children in the family survived the armed attack.

Shortly after the crime, Mexican Security Minister, Alfonso Durazo, He said the narcos may have confused the convoy he was traveling in the family and confirmed the deaths of three women and six children.

Children who survived the attack were taken to a hospital in Arizona, in United States.

Meanwhile, Alex LeBaron, a member of the family responded to Trump: “Want to help? Focus on reducing drug consumption in the United States. You want to help a little more? Avoid the ATF and gun law systematically inject high-powered weapons in Mexico”.

This is the second time that Trump and Lopez Obrador communicate in less than a month by violence caused by drug traffickers in Mexico.

The 17 Last October, shortly after the Mexican Army freed Ovidio Guzman, son Chapo Guzman, which it has extradition order to the United States, the two presidents agreed to coordinate teams to control arms trafficking from the US to Mexico.

Recently, the Mexican government said the 70% of the weapons in the hands of drug gangs entered through the northern border of the country, the same border where Trump wants to build a wall to stop the migration of Central Americans.
