Democrat Senator Who Wants Trump Assassinated Allegedly Raising Funds To Pursue Her Cause
Missouri state Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal says she posted and then deleted a comment on Facebook that said she hoped for President Donald Trump's assassination. The Democratic Senator says she didn't mean what she posted Thursday, Aug. 17, 2017, but was frustrated with the president's reaction to the violence last weekend in Charlottesville.
According to Fox News, 'Allies of the state senator in Missouri fighting to keep her seat after saying she hopes President Trump is assassinated set up a website and encouraged people to donate money to the embattled Democrat'. But the fundraising link disappeared from the site, after Fox News asked questions about the request for donations.
The Senator said in a statement on Wednesday, that 'she appreciates the gesture and show of support from the supporters who set up the site.'
The "I stand with Maria" website included a link to Senator Nadal's fundraising page ActBlue, an online platform used by Democrats to raise money online.
