About two weeks ago, a Mexican Drug Lord named Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman escaped from prison through a tunnel under the jail.

Donald Trump, who loves to rant about Mexican immigrants as criminals and rapists seized the opportunity to go after El Chapo on Twitter.

A few days later, the Trump camp said that their fearless leader had received threats on Twitter in the name of El Chapo:

. . . he FBI is investigating threatening tweets to the U.S. Republican presidential candidate purported to have originated from Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, a notorious Mexican drug lord who escaped from prison on Saturday.
Reuters could not confirm the authenticity of the Twitter accounts from which the threats were allegedly made.
Trump, a real estate billionaire who has generated controversy by saying many illegal immigrants from Mexico are criminals and rapists, said in a statement on Sunday that "corrupt Mexican officials" had let Guzman escape.
A Twitter account made out in the kingpin's name, Joaquin Guzman Loera, that on Sunday had celebrated his escape sent a message threatening Trump if he continued to speak out.
"Keep screwing (with us) and I'm going to make you eat your f***ing words you lousy white fa**ot," said the Twitter account with the user name @ElChap0Guzman.

At an awards show, a rapper called Pitbull taunted Trump and told him to "watch out for El Chapo," also adding that Trump should never be President:

Later Pitbull explained via Fusion:
“Donald Trump doesn’t become Donald Trump by being ignorant,” he told Ramos. “What I think about Trump is he found a button that he likes, he sees that it got people real mad and hot, and he’s gonna keep pushing it.”
Pitbull said that what Trump is doing will have consequences–Mr. Worldwide doesn’t intend to help make the presidential candidate’s wallet any bigger.
“No, I wouldn’t be able to go to his hotels,” Pitbull said. “I just can’t. I can’t for the simple fact that you’re speaking about a culture that I ride, I die for. This culture’s the only reason I’m having this conversation right now.”
