Man with ‘Kill Trump’ sign who screamed ‘kill the president’ now behind bars for threat to ‘assassinate him’ in Dallas – The Sun

A MAN who threatened to kill President Donald Trump and held up a sign encouraging just that has been sentenced to prison.

Mickael Gedlu, 36, pleaded guilty in December to making threats against Trump, according to a press release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Texas.


Prosecutors say Gedlu admitted to stating on YouTube: “I'm waiting for Trump to visit Dallas before I attempt to assassinate him.”

On May 31, 2018, Gedlu was spotted in Dallas near the Adolphus Hotel — roughly 30 minutes before Trump arrived at the hotel for a private fundraiser.

Police had closed down several surrounding rounds in downtown Dallas to secure the area.
