‘We made you President, we can just as easily take you out’: Does this death threat tweet to Mexico leader prove El Chapo’s son, Ivan Guzman, 32, is taking over his father drugs empire?
The son of Mexican drugs lord Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman launched a fuming tirade at the country’s president – threatening to ‘take him out’. In further evidence that he is being groomed to take over his father’s multi-billion dollar narcotics business, Ivan Guzman tweeted Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto: ‘Just as we put you in the presidency, we can just as easily take you out. More after the cut…
In a series of Tweets, as his dad ‘El Chapo’ was recaptured by marines after six months as the world’s most wanted man, eldest son Ivan, 32, vowed to continue the moustached drugs kingpin’s Sinaloa Cartel.
Ivan, his dad’s biggest cheerleader, followed the tweet, which was quickly deleted, with a series of rants against the Mexican government. Following Nieto’s trumpeting statement, which crowed, ‘Mission accomplished: We have him. I would like to inform Mexicans that Joaquin Guzmán Loera has been detained’ Ivan was raging.
‘F*** your mother you f****** scum,’ he blasted back in response as it was announced that his father’s time on the run was up. ‘You have no idea of what you have done, nor of the trouble you have gotten yourselves into,’ another spat.
Aquí nada cambia, seguiremos trabajando porque como dijo mi padre, aunque nos ande llevando la verga hay que traer la frente en alto.
— Iván Guzmán. (@lvanArchivaIdo) January 11, 2016
”Here nothing changes, we will continue working because as my father said, although we walk there carrying the cock to bring the head up”.
”Although short but always with the best posture”.
When Ivan threatened to ‘take out’ Nieto, his Twitter followers retweeted the comment retweeted or liked it 13,000 times. Security experts in Mexico have long speculated that El Chapo, believed to be 57, is grooming Ivan to be the next head of his cartel – which he boasts is the biggest exporter of cocaine, heroin and crystal meth into the US.
Regularly posting photos of his narco lifestyle of supercars, bikini clad girlfriends, pet tigers and even gold plated AK47s, it was Alfredo who almost led the FBI directly to their father when he tweeted a picture of them in a restaurant in Costa Rica – and forgot to turn off the locator.
It is believed that Alfredo is too young and inexperienced to take control of the multi-billion dollar drugs organisation – and that it will be left to Ivan if and when his father is extradited.
