Antonio Vazquez Alba, known in Mexico the Great Shaman, has predicted that billionaire businessman Donald Trump will not be the Republican presidential nominee in the United States. He said the real estate mogul will fail because of his campaign's many "missteps," but he will use his financial resources to make an independent run to the White House.
"He's burning himself, he doesn't need them to burn him," Vazquez said.
Vazquez also predicted that drug lord Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán will never return to prison because "as soon as they spot him, they'll kill him."
He added that officials "are not going to take the risk" of having Guzmán "get away again," so "we are not going to see him in prison again."
The shaman revealed his visions for 2016 during a press conference on Tuesday.
Vazquez, who makes his predictions by reading Tarot cards, has been making predictions for more than 25 years and according to his representatives has been correct 85 percent of the times.
The shaman said industrial activity, employment and investment "from everywhere" would rise in Mexico, boosting the economy in 2016, but warned that Europe, South America and China were not good places to invest.
"I'll confirm this, and of this I'm truly certain ... that it's a truly brilliant economic cycle," Vazquez said.
The shaman said marijuana legalization would "not benefit anything" and predicted no natural disasters in Mexico during 2016, adding it would be a "calm year without serious problems."
