Trumps says U.S. to designate Mexican drug cartel as terrorists | Reuters

President Trump has announced that he has been working to label Mexican drug cartel associates as terrorists for their drug and human trafficking. He told Bill O’Reilly in an interview that he has been working on this process for the past 90 days. Mexico’s foreign ministry quickly responded and has asked for a high-level meeting with officials from the U.S. State Department to discuss legal actions and the movement of weapons and cash to these cartels. If a group is officially designated as terrorists, it is illegal for a U.S. citizen to purposefully support the group and the members cannot enter the country.
