On Tuesday, conservative radio show host Ben Shapiro responded to President Trump's call for "war" on Mexican drug cartels, saying that he was "dead right about this."
Shortly after the news broke that multiple American citizens died at the hands of drug cartel members in Sonora, Mexico, President Trump tweeted: “A wonderful family and friends from Utah got caught between two vicious drug cartels, who were shooting at each other, with the result being many great American people killed, including young children, and some missing,” President Trump on Tuesday.
“If Mexico needs or requests help in cleaning out these monsters, the United States stands ready, willing [and] able to get involved and do the job quickly and effectively,” he offered. “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!”
“This is the time for Mexico, with the help of the United States, to wage WAR on the drug cartels and wipe them off the face of the earth,” the president added. “We merely await a call from your great new president!”
Ben Shapiro immediately took to Twitter to announce his support for the President's statement: "Trump is dead right about this. Mexico’s violence is a threat to Americans on both sides of the border," he said.

The horrific attack left members of two American families dead as they were traveling in a caravan to a wedding. Check out what the Daily Wire reported in relation to the attack:
Members of the LeBarón and Langford families, related families with U.S. citizenship who are part of a religious community in Mexico, were ambushed by a cartel while traveling in a three-car caravan to a wedding on Monday.
Members of one of the Mexican drug cartels that have been terrorizing the region reportedly opened fire on the vehicles and burned them, resulting in the death a total of nine people and injuring at least three others. The families suspect that a cartel based in Chihuahua is responsible for the massacre.
“Maria Rhonita Miller and four of her children died on a road in northern Mexico, according to [Lafe Langford Jr.] and social media posts,” The Salt Lake Tribune reports. “The bodies of Dawna Ray Langford, 43, and Christina Marie Langford, 31, were found later Monday, Lafe Langford Jr. said. The bodies of two of Dawna Ray Langford’s children, Trevor, 11, and Rogan, 3, also were recovered Monday.”
Among the children who died were Rhonita’s twin 6-month-old babies and two children aged 10 and 12. The Tribune notes that an earlier report that Christina Marie’s baby daughter Faith Marie Johnson had died “turned out to be incorrect.”
In addition to the six children who tragically died, Late Langford Jr. says three other children suffered bullet wounds.
