Feds: Security guard threatened Trump over Iranian’s death

National News

A Florida security guard is in jail after authorities say he threatened to kill President Donald Trump as retaliation for the U.S. military killing an Iranian general.

The Secret Service says Chauncy Lump posted a live video on Facebook last week where he stated “he killed my leader and I have to kill” Trump.

Agents say Lump periodically displayed a semi-automatic rifle while wearing white cream on his face and a towel wrapped on his head like a turban.

Lump told agents he was joking.  

He was being held Thursday on $100,000 bail on charges of threatening the president.
