The President has huge amounts of security detail ready to protect him at a moments notice 24/7. Yet even with all that protection, that hasn’t stopped many from threatening to kill the commander in chief.
The latest threat on President Trump’s life was made by an Illinois man who thinks that Trump is in bed with Russia.
His name is Joseph Lynn Pickett.
Pickett posted several threats on Facebook against the President. As reported by the Belleville News Democrat, he had written:
“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,” Pickett had posted. “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.”
He continued to comment and post about waiting for the Secret Service to come knocking on his door to arrest him.
The liberal didn’t stop there either. “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 later wrote.
Adding, “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.”
He was reportedly working a Lowes several months ago until he was fired after threatening a colleague. Shortly after the Secret Service was notified of these posts by one of Pickett’s former co-workers.
Joseph Pickett was arrested and charged on June 15 with threatening the president of the United States. Looks like he got his wish.
