Donald Trump calls FBI after El Chapo, escaped drug lord, threatens him on Twitter (ABC US News)

Guzman, head of the the notorious Sinaloa Cartel, apparently hopped on social media shortly after he escaped his cell, bragging about the breakout and threatening Trump, the real estate magnate and anti-immigration advocate who has accused Mexico of sending criminals to the U.S. Trump has sent sending a storm of tweets since Sunday, using El Chapo's escape to criticize U.S. border policies, immigration reform and the war on drugs.
