‘So who’s going to assassinate Trump at his inauguration?’ one Twitter user demanded to know.
‘I just pray that the first n***a who tries to assassinate Donald Trump don’t miss’, another added.
One joked: ‘My mom is talking about assassinate donald trump. watch out guy my white suburban mother is coming for you.’
While some also called for the death of vice president-elect Mike Pence.
‘If trump wins pls dont assassinate him without getting mike pence first because his a** is f***ing crazy,’ one user tweeted.
While the First Amendment allows freedom of speech, death threats against political figures – particularly the next president of the United States are taken very seriously by security agencies.
