President Donald Trump has a security detail with him 24/7. But even with all the protection, people still threaten to kill the commander in chief.
The latest threat came from Joseph Lynn Pickett, an Illinois man, who believes Trump is in bed with Russia.
Pickett posted a series of threats to Trump on Facebook.
According to the Belleville News Democrat, he wrote:
“Before I die I want our president and congress to sign a treaty to never side with Russia or any enemy of the United States of America! If one will then that person deserves to be shot,” his post read. “Guess what Trump? I’m waiting for the right time…and I KNOW your (sic) Putin’s (expletive)! The secret service now has a heads up as to my plan to assassinate Trump…let’s see if they act.”
After the original post, Pickett continued to comment, saying he was “still waiting” for the Secret Service to knock on his door and arrest him.
“Honestly am I really going to have to kill trump before our fine Government (the jack booted thugs they are) actually takes me into custody for threatening to assassinate President Donald Trump?” Pickett wrote. “I mean he sold our country to The Russians. He is a Benedict Arnold but hey the (expletive) is our President even though he needs a blade in his neck. And you dumb, asses who stick up for him…who’s gonna protect you when someone like me comes t (sic) take you out.”
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that Pickett worked at Lowes several months ago until he was canned for threatening a colleague.
