A LORRY driver from Michigan has been charged with threatening to kill American president Donald Trump.
In a criminal complaint submitted to a court in Detroit, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) special agent Matthew Lariviere accused James Anthony Jackson of making threatening phone calls to the government’s Secret Service department in Chicago.
According to the FBI agent:
Jackson made a number of phone calls to the field office, threatening to, “Blow Trump’s brains out”.
Lariviere said Jackson had allegedly made the calls from a phone registered to James Jackson Profit Group LLC in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
The Secret Service agent said the truck driver had also made repeated calls to a woman he had met on a dating app and added: “She stated that Jackson told her he was, ‘Going to cut off her head and parade it in front of the White House’ and that he was going to ‘Kill president Trump’.”
