ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – Thursday morning, a Missouri State Senator posted a comment on Facebook stating she hoped President Donald Trump will be assassinated.
The Secret Service confirmed with News 4 that they are investigating.
Maria Chappelle-Nadal, D-University City, posted the comment, “No. I Will. I hope Trump is assassinated!” in response to a comment from another person who posted about his cousin being on the President’s secret service detail and his fear that he will probably receive a visit from the secret service. A screenshot of the comment was posted to Twitter by KMOX’s Mark Reardon.
"Someone wrote a statement on my Facebook and I responded with something that shouldn't have been put up there," said Chapelle-Nadal. Her comment was quickly deleted from her page.
Although the post was deleted, the ripple effects were felt for hours afterwards.
Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill said, "I condemn it. It's outrageous. And she should resign."
