An aide to Donald Trump has claimed the FBI is investigating threatening tweets to the US Republican presidential hopeful that are purported to have originated from Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, the notorious Mexican drug lord who escaped from prison on Saturday.

The authenticity of the Twitter accounts from which the threats were allegedly made could not be verified, but one made out in the kingpin’s name, Joaquin Guzman Loera, that on Sunday had celebrated his escape sent a message threatening Trump if he continued to speak out.

“Keep screwing [with us] and I’m going to make you eat your fucking words you lousy white faggot,” said the Twitter account with the user name @ElChap0Guzman.

Four Mexican government officials said they could not say whether the account, as well as several others in the name of some of Guzman’s children that were linked to it, were genuine. “I am told they are apocryphal,” said Mexican deputy interior minister Roberto Campa.
