Man arrested for threatening to kill Trump at inauguration

A man in Florida has been accused of posting online that he would kill United States President-elect, Donald Trump, at his inauguration on Friday.
“This is January 16, 2017. I was requested to type this in and post it.“Yes, I will be at the review stand, the inauguration and I’m going to kill President Trump, President-elect Trump today,” the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) quoted Dominic Puopolo as saying in a video posted on Monday.Puopolo, 51, was arrested on Tuesday and allegedly admitted to making the threat.He was ordered for a mental evaluation at a court hearing on Wednesday.

The threat, which was directed at the Secret Service, came in the middle of a long string of incoherent video messages where he called himself Jesus Christ and repeatedly talked about his “father.”Some of the messages are aimed at President Barack Obama’s White House Chief of Staff, Denis McDonough and model Adriana Lima, as well as a woman he referred to as his daughter.Puopolo, who said in one of the posts that he had had three wives and three children, is the son of American Airlines Flight 11 9/11 victim, Sonia Morales Puopolo, the Miami Herald reported.
