Just days after Donald Trump won the election, Twitter has become the hub for sore losers to call for his assassination.
The Republican beat Democrat challenger Hillary Clinton to become the 45th President of the United States come January 2017.
After the results were declared last Tuesday, many of those who opposed Trump rushed to Twitter to call for the man’s assassination, as if there was justification for it!
These people are dangerous.
How about this one?
And this one…
One other user even joked that, ‘My mom is talking about assassinate donald trump. watch out guy my white suburban mother is coming for you.’
While some also called for the death of Vice President-Elect Mike Pence.
You try to do good. You try to give people the benefit of the doubt, but these Twitter-finger idiots have all just threatened the life of a President-Elect…
While the First Amendment states our right to freedom of speech, death threats against political figures – especially the next President of the United States – are not included or protected…and tend to draw on visits from the FBI.
The Secret Service has since commented that the agency is well aware of the threats and that they have seen a spike since Trump was elected on Tuesday.
They said there were ‘mechanisms in place’ to monitor social media for such posts and to discern what threats could be taken more seriously, but that ‘every threat was taken seriously’.
Threats that tend to be constant and escalate in frequency, call for ‘more of prompt response’. Since the surprise win, Donald Trump has since increased security around Trump Tower and other buildings as a defense measure against any wood-be attackers.
Meanwhile, thousands of rioters across the nation are continuing their vandalism, attacks and destruction in the name of…Democracy?
