Donald Trump unleashes a Twitter rampage after El Chapo prison break, demanding an apology from the media about his original racist comments about Mexicans.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump used the elusive escape of the world’s most wanted drug Lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman from a high security Mexican prison as the perfect opportunity to farther taunt his anti-Mexican racism.

Instead of apologizing and stearing clear of further inciting racial tensions, Trump amped up his bigotry with an “I told you so” Twitter storm rehashing his close-minded assumptions that Mexicans are “rapists” and “killers”, and of course not missing the chance to slam his political opponents in the process.

Guzman took notice of Trump’s comments and didn’t fall short to lash out against the words.

"And I still f***ing make you swallow all your wh***s f***ing words," Guzman responded to Trump.

But the tweet didn’t stop Trump from continuing his rampage and narcissistically demanding the media owes him an apology.

Despite Trump’s swift and generalized assertions that immigrants are tearing our country apart, Christian Science Monitor analyzed this ignorant generalization is not at all the typical case.

A Congressional Research Service report found that the majority of unauthorized immigrants do not match Trump’s label as felons who primarily engage in such activities as drug trafficking, illegal trafficking of firearms and murder.

And the American Immigration Council reported that data compiled from the FBI and the US Census Bureau have concluded that immigrants are “immigrants are less likely than the native-born to engage in either violent or nonviolent ‘antisocial’ behaviors.”

Trump’s racism as not only incited fire from media critics and a notorious drug lord, but even individuals from his own crowd. Republican presidential candidates Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush denounced his racist comments, claiming them as offensive and divisive. And now even Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch has had enough of the racism and in an almost non-Fox-newsy way called out Trump’s total lack of accuracy.

The tweets may come as a surprise, but Murdoch as long been an advocate for immigration reform so Trump beating the horse dead over this issue as certainly struck a chord with the media tyrant.
