A Missouri state senator said in a now-deleted Facebook post that she hopes President Donald Trump is assassinated.
Maria Chappelle-Nadal acknowledged on Thursday that she wrote a post which read: “I hope Trump is assassinated!”
She made the comment in an exchange with a left-wing activist who claimed that his cousin is a Secret Service agent.
Chappelle-Nadal confirmed to a reporter with St. Louis TV station KMOX that she posted the comment.
“I put something up on my personal Facebook page and it has now been deleted,” she said.
