'I don't want to say what I am gonna do, but they will be designated,' says US president.
Axar.az reports citing AA that the U.S. will designate Mexican drug cartels as terrorist organizations, President Donald Trump said Tuesday, as the violent groups continue to maintain a strong and lethal grip over the Latin American country.
"I don't want to say what I am gonna do, but they will be designated," Trump said in an interview with former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly, adding Mexico’s leadership rejected his offer “to let us go in and clean it out."
The LeBaron community, a part of the Mormon community that broke away from the Mormon Church and formed a sect in Mexico, filled a petition Monday asking the Trump administration to list Mexican drug cartels as foreign terrorist organizations.
“So you’re going to designate Mexican cartels as terror groups?” O’Reilly pressed.
“Yeah, I will be. I will be designating the cartels. Absolutely,” said Trump, adding he has been working on it for the last 90 days.
"You know, designation is not that easy, you have to go through a process, and we’re well into that process," he added.
“And wait and see -- they’ll attack you for doing that,” said O’Reilly.
“I don’t care. I’m attacked on everything,” Trump said.
