DC Police Investigate Threat Against Trump Supporters Meeting

-

Washington, D.C. police is investigating an online threat to gun down supporters of President Donald Trump during an event held Tuesday evening at the Trump International Hotel.

A Twitter account handle “Dreamstarjustic” had threatened a writer who had planned to attend a “monthly meetup” to support the president.

Cassandra Fairbanks, a D.C. correspondent for a conservative publication, The Gateway Pundit, had tweeted, “Who is going to the MAGA meetup tonight”. In response, an anonymous Twitter user said, “I am coming with a gun and I expect to get numerous bloodstained MAGA hats as trophies.” An image of a handgun was added.

In a post on the Gateway Pundit, Fairbanks said the monthly meeting was “a mix of several different pro-Trump groups including Virginia Women for Trump.”

A DC police spokesperson told Newsweek that the matter was “still under investigation” by the department. In an emailed response, the police further announced that “this case is currently under investigation by the FBI, thus (Metro Department) has no further information available.”

Twitter has suspended the account that made the threat.
