An assassination plot against President Donald Trump was just exposed. The nation is completely stunned, but the suspect was caught before he had the opportunity to carry out his murderous act.
“A judge has sentenced a Texas man accused of threatening to assassinate President Donald Trump to 18 months in prison, prosecutors said,” according to Breitbart News this week.
The man, 36-year-old Mickael Gedlu, threatened to assassinate Trump for months on social media — and he was demonstrably serious about it. He even pleaded guilty to the criminal threats in court.
Of course, he wouldn’t be able to get away with a plea of innocence. In one of his YouTube videos, for example, Gedlu said that he was “waiting for Trump to visit Dallas before I attempt to assassinate him.”
On Facebook, Gedlu even admitted, “For 20 straight months now, openly and publicly, I have been calling for President Trump’s death.” These instances and others were enough for authorities to take the threats seriously.
Americans should pray for Trump as often as possible. He has an extraordinarily difficult job, and during a politically tumultuous time, no less. Pray for his safety and the protection of his entire family.
