'El Chapo' tweets threat to Trump

Joaquin Guzman, the fugitive Mexican drug lord, appeared last night to be threatening Donald Trump while on the run.

The country's most notorious cartel leader broke out of a maximum-security jail at the weekend through a mile-long tunnel dug under his cell. Supporters of Guzman - known as El Chapo, or "Shorty" vented their ire for Mr Trump, the Republican US presidential hopeful who has accused Mexico of sending rapists and criminals to the US. A post riddled with obscenities on a Twitter account run by El Chapo's son said the billionaire would be made to "swallow his words".
