A 26-year-old security guard has been arrested in Florida for saying in a Facebook video that he would kill President Donald Trump for taking out terrorist Qasem Soleimani.
Chauncy Lump put white cream on his face, wrapped a towel around his head and wore a shower curtain while holding an AK-47 in the video, saying, “He killed my leader, and I have to kill him. I am ready for Donald. I am ready.”
Lump later told the Secret Service that the video was a joke, but he did not say he was joking in the video. Trump was less than an hour away at his Mar-a-Lago resort at the time the video was made.
“The Feds are watching. I am not afraid of the Feds,” he stated in the video. Later, he told federal agents that he should never have made the video.
Lump is scheduled to appear in federal court on Thursday and is being held on $100,000 bail.
