As Mexico commits to a $3.8 million reward for information leading to the arrest of currently comfortable escaped prisoner Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, new details on his sophisticated escape plan imply his eventual capture might very well be an unrealistic proposition. Officials now believe that El Chapo's escape involved a shrewd mile-long tunnel outfitted with lighting, a ventilation system, a modified motorcycle, phones, and an elevator:

Thus far, at least 34 people have been questioned in connection with El Chapo's escape — with the head of the prison reported as fired shortly after. After national embarrassment Donald Trumpattempted to use El Chapo's escape to once again push his putrid thoughts on immigration, El Chapo's son supposedly tweeted a low-key death threat. Trump then contacted the FBI while doubling down on his increasingly racist assertions.

He's coming for you, Trump.
