Donald Trump Asks FBI to Investigate El Chapo Related Threat

Trump received a threatening message in the wake of a tweet about the drug lord.

Sources tell ABC News Trump contacted the FBI’s Office in Manhattan on Monday.

The tweet from user @ElChap0Guzman, originally in Spanish, reads: “Keep [expletive] around and I'm gonna make you swallow your [expletive] words...” It was not clear who owns the account.

“I'm fighting for much more than myself," Trump said in a statement Monday. "I'm fighting for the future of our country which is being overrun by criminals. You can't be intimidated. This is too important."
