Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman is among the throngs upset with Donald Trump’s election victory over Hillary Clinton.

A message from an “official” Twitter account under the name ElChap0Guzman on Thursday expressed outrage and dismay at the Republican’s election day win, The New York Daily News reported.

“The representative of hatred, confrontation, racism, persecution and misogyny that is so palpable in the world won,” the post read, adding, “What a sad situation for everyone.”

The News had not verified the Twitter account for the Sinaloa Cartel leader and its origins remain behind a cloud of mystery.

It’s highly unlikely that Guzman tweeted the post considering he is currently under heavy guard at a maximum security facility in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez awaiting extradition to the U.S.

However, both of his sons, who have assumed leadership positions within the Sinaloa Cartel, have been known to maintain a social media presence — often posting images of their lavish lifestyles on Twitter and Instagram.

Previous menacing Twitter posts prompted the Trump campaign to ask the FBI to investigate possible threats against the then-candidate.

After Donald Trump had referred to Mexican immigrants as rapists and criminals during his presidential announcement last year, a message was tweeted to his Twitter account @realDonaldTrump, which read: “Keep f–king around, and I’ll make you eat all of your God d–n words, f–king whitey f—-t.”

The message was posted after “El Chapo” pulled off his brazen escape from a maximum security prison back in July 2015.

The bombastic billionaire businessman responded that he “would kick his a-s (El Chapo).”

The latest tweets from the “El Chapo” account included a quote from Martin Luther King Jr. about learning to live together as brothers and referenced Trump’s campaign promise about building his wall on the border.

“The wall is not a problem – it can be leaped over or dug beneath.“But how many deportations are to come – how many families will be separated?”

An appeal filed by Guzman’s legal team preventing his extradition to the U.S. was denied by a federal judge in Mexico back in September.

Mexican government officials indicated that they expected to complete the process for Guzman’s extradition by January or February of 2017.

Lawyers for “El Chapo” recently filed another appeal arguing against the extradition citing that he could face the death penalty, which is against the law in Mexico.

However, the appeal seems like a last gasp effort.

The Mexican government approved Guzman’s extradition back in May after U.S. officials provided assurances the drug kingpin would not face capital punishment.
