Congressman Matt Gaetz is calling for extreme measures to be taken in order to control the fentanyl crisis in our country.
According to The Daily Wire, As the fentanyl crisis kills tens of thousands of Americans annually, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) called for bombing Mexico Wednesday afternoon.
As a response to remarks that he made during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Wednesday, Gaetz called for bombing Sinaloa, Mexico, home of the notorious Sinaloa drug cartel.
Here’s what Gaetz said during the hearing in which he replied, “Bomb Sinaloa. Not kidding” to.
As noted by The Western Journal, in May, former Defense Secretary Mark Esper’s tell-all book about his time in the Trump administration sparked discussions about bombing Mexico to eliminate drug labs.
The New York Times cited the book as saying that Esper claimed that more than once, Trump asked him during the summer of 2020 if the military could “shoot missiles into Mexico to destroy the drug labs.”
Trump said that “we could just shoot some Patriot missiles and take out the labs, quietly,” adding that “no one would know it was us.”
After liberals freaked out on social media, Donald Trump Jr., responded to the claims in the book, writing on Twitter, “I’m still trying to figure out the recent media outrage about my father possibly wanting to target Mexican drug cartel manufacturing facilities in Mexico… Is that supposed to be a bad thing???”
As previously reported by Next News, the CBP reported that they intercepted a large amount of drugs during the month of July. Methamphetamine seizures increased by 15 percent, heroin seizures increased 8 percent, and fentanyl seizures increased 203 percent.
