Pablo Escobar Visits The White House

Pablo Escobar At The White House

Source: Reddit

At the height of his cocaine empire, many estimated that Pablo Escobar’s personal net worth reached upwards of $3 billion. The drug lord’s personal mantra was “Plato o ploma,” or “silver or lead”. To Escobar, if individuals weren’t persuaded by his masterful bribery techniques, they would be permanently persuaded toward death in the form of a bullet. No one is for certain how many individuals met their maker following an unsuccessful run-in with Escobar, though current estimates range from the hundreds to thousands.
