Secret Service: President Trump and Donald Trump Jr. - No. 1 and No. 2 highest death threats

Posted: Nov 4th, 2019 - 4:36 am

President Trump, once the popular reality TV host of The Apprentice and a favorite of celebrity shows and gossip columns, has become the No. 1 target of death threats, according to the U.S. Secret Service.

His son, Donald Trump Jr., is No. 2 on the list.

And, Trump Jr. writes in his new book Triggered: How The Left Thrives On Hate And Wants To Silence Us, “It gets worse. Much worse.”

In his book, due out Tuesday, Trump lists several friends, family members, and conservatives who have become targets of left-leaning critics and attackers.

“Anyone who supports my father is a target,” he wrote. He named a few who have been threatened and harassed: Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and Paul’s aide Sergio Gor; Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise and others injured in the June 2017 baseball field shooting assault; girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle; brother Eric Trump and sister Ivanka Trump; former Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen; former spokeswoman Sarah Sanders; top policy aide Stephen Miller; Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell; and Vice President Mike Pence.

The president last week said he would have thrown out the first pitch during one of the World Series games, won by the Washington Nationals, but “they’ve got to dress me up in a lot of heavy armor — I’ll look too heavy," a reference to body armor.

In writing a book sure to stir even more anti-Trump rage against him, the president's son penned in an endnote that he and his family are not planning to hide.

“To my siblings, Eric, Ivanka, Tiffany, and Barron: Only you can understand the craziness we have experienced in the last three years. We learned who our true friends are, and we learned the viciousness of fake news. Nothing could have prepared us for the lies. We are Trumps, we don’t play the victim card, and we will succeed here as well. We are in this together.”

His book, from publisher Center Street, a division of Hachette Book Group, parallels the speeches he and his father have given, highlighting the administration’s achievements, ripping critics and the media and poking fun at 2020 Democratic candidates.

It is dedicated to the “deplorables,” those that 2016 Democratic candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton sneered at for backing Trump. “While the elite of the other party look down on you and would rather you stay silent, I salute your work ethic, patriotism, and values,” he wrote.

Trump said he was surprised that he became so hated for giving his trademark speeches to promote his father.

“These people are so irrational, hysterical, upset, and out looking for enemies. I should know,” he wrote. “I became one of their top targets.”

And, he added, “After the election, I became the guy who receives the second highest number of death threats in the country (according to the Secret Service, second only to my father).”

In addition to ripping anti-Trump hate, he also criticizes those pushing to silence conservatives on college campuses, the “war against Christians,” the “morons” in Congress, 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s “swampy” politics, and the push to approve transgendered men competing against women in sports.

Democrats in Congress, he wrote, "had only one reason to exist, and that was to try and make my father and me cower in a corner, curl up in a ball, and die."

He also takes on the media. “In my lifetime, the press has gone from Walter Cronkite, ‘the most trusted man in America,’ to Jim Acosta and Fake News. It’s a shame.”

He concludes by giving odds on the 2020 Democratic race. Biden is the leader, but he wrote that the former vice president “would be the easiest candidate for my father to take down.” And he cites South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg but said “he’s just done nothing to merit this kind of a job.”
