Finally, an adversary worthy of The Donald

Donald Trump and escaped Mexican drug lord El Chapo threaten each other on Twitter

Donald Trump's big mouth seems to have gotten him into some big trouble with an escaped Mexican drug lord. After notorious criminal Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman vanished from a maximum-security prison on Saturday, Trump had some Monday morning musings:

Trump probably wasn't expecting to hear back from Guzman. Well, lesson learned. Replying from an unverified account in Spanish, @ElChap0Guzman wrote to Trump, "Keep f--king around, and I'll make you eat all of your godd--n words." He followed up by calling the GOP presidential candidate a homophobic slur.

After that, Trump called the FBI, TMZ reports. "I'm fighting for much more than myself. I'm fighting for the future of our country which is being overrun by criminals," Trump told TMZ, adding, "You can't be intimidated. It's too important."

Donald Trump is in second place in the latest national poll of the GOP presidential race.
