2016 GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump claims he has called the FBI after receiving death threats from the son of escaped Mexican drug lord El Chapo, reports TMZ.

The celebrity gossip site said Trump said the man contacted him via Twitter saying (roughly translated from Spanish): "Keep f*cking around and I'm gonna make you swallow your bitch words you f*cking whitey milks***tter," the last term being a homophobic slur.

Trump's campaign has been centered around criticizing Mexico and undocumented Mexican immigrants as "rapists" and drug dealers who are flooding over the border into the United States.

In a bravado-laden statement to TMZ, Trump stated, "I'm fighting for much more than myself. I'm fighting for the future of our country which is being overrun by criminals." He adds, "You can't be intimidated. It's too important."
