A trill of the presidential candidate Gustavo Petro generated a tough interaction on social media between the candidate for the first position of the country by the Historic Pact and the commander of the Army General Eduardo Enrique Zapateiro. In his tweet, Petro stated that certain (general) officers "are on the Clan's payroll."
"While the soldiers from the Gulf Clan are being killed, some of their generals are still on the Clan’s payroll." They eventually rise to generals." Gustavo Petro, one of the users of social networks said that the top leaders of drug trafficking are corrupted.

The message led to the response to the Army Commander, who in six trills interviewed the presidential candidate.
