The FBI has offered assistance to the Mexican government as authorities investigate the brazen killing of nine American citizens by drug cartel gunmen in northern Mexico on Monday, officials told Fox News.
It was unclear of Mexican authorities have taken up the offer. It came hours after Mexico rejected President Trump’s overture to “wage war” on the country’s drug cartels in response to the brutal slayings.
The article goes on to state the following:
“If Mexico needs or requests help in cleaning out these monsters, the United States stands ready, willing & able to get involved and do the job quickly and effectively,” Trump tweeted Tuesday. “The great new President of Mexico has made this a big issue, but the cartels have become so large and powerful that you sometimes need an army to defeat an army!”
Mexican Security Secretary Alfonso Durazo suggested that the Americans driving in a convoy to a wedding may have been mistaken as a rival drug gang.
Nine U.S. citizens were killed when their vehicles were ambushed by gunmen in Mexico.
Mexican Security Secretary Alfonso Durazo said the assailants may have mistaken the victims for members of a rival cartel because they were traveling in large SUVs. https://t.co/ZZts3VkjGD
