Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman has been caught after escaping prison in July 2015. A Twitter account allegedly operated by him last tweeted on January 6, 2016 and referenced his possible “New Year’s resolutions.”

The Twitter account was first brought to media attention in July 2015, when Guzman allegedly used it to threaten Donald Trump after the presidential candidate made racially charged comments directed at Mexicans.

The account claims to be the official account for El Chapo, though this has not been verified. But the account has been active since 2012. The Daily Mail reports that the cartel leader’s son runs the account.

Read El Chapo’s last tweets before his re-capture below:

My only purpose this year is to be with my family, appreciate those who love me and tell ordinary people to go f**k themselves.

Greetings to my young crew, a little busy but happy, I am a rich man when I am with my children.

Those who stripped me this year, I will continue peeling the next year.
