As president, Donald Trump has faced immense threats.
He is hated so badly by those on the far-left that they are willing to do anything to take him down.
And the Secret Service just uncovered a crazy threat Trump received.
Radical Antifa Violence
The far-left group Antifa has become a regular fixture at any conservative protest or rally.
They show up wearing black masks, and often carrying weapons, and they violently attack anybody they disagree with.
While they claim that their name means “anti-fascist,” and that they are opposing fascism, they are generally targeting Trump-supporting conservatives, not fascists.
Also, many of their tactics are similar to those used by prominent fascist organizers throughout history.
The Nazi brownshirts were roving gangs of soldiers who went out and beat down those who spoke out against the Nazi Party, much like Antifa does to those who oppose their view of a “communist utopia.”
And while Trump supporters take the brunt of Antifa’s violence, they truly are hoping to bring some of that violence to politicians, and eventually the President of the United States.
A White Nationalist Rally Turned Anti-Police, Anti-Trump Counter-Protest
During a protest against a white nationalist rally in Washington, D.C. over the weekend, a handful of white nationalist demonstrators were dwarfed by thousands of protesters.
While the protesters were not able to get anywhere near the rally-goers, they did make their presence known by attacking police officers, the media, and making very real threats against President Donald Trump.
Most of the protesters ended up in front of the White House, with a mix of standard left-wing protesters, and more violent masked Antifa spread around.
When questioned by the Daily Caller, a number of those more violent protesters said some crazy things.
They were asked what they would do if President Trump showed up at their protest.
The answers ranged from physical assault to murder.
One person went so far as to directly state that he would murder the president, and do it “for the people.”
Another stated that he would “do him like Gaddafi,” referring to the Libyan leader who was dragged into the street, beaten, and murdered by his own people.
While those were the most extreme answers, most stated they would physically assault him if he showed up.
Secret Service Gets Involved
In response to these troubling statements, the Daily Caller contacted the Secret Service to inform them of their findings.
The Secret Service told them that they are aware of the threats and that they would investigate.
Threatening to take the life, or to assault, a sitting president is a highly illegal move.
Secret Service is dedicated to protecting the president, and when those claims are made they are required to investigate.
In their investigation, the goal is to prove that the statement was a credible threat.
As for the person who said he would murder Trump “for the people,” it seems as though that will be a difficult statement to justify.
Do you think that Antifa protesters who threaten the president should be investigated?
