Trump supporter Dan Bowman told a Wall Street Journal reporter at a Cincinnati Trump rally last Thursday that he plans to assassinate Hillary Clinton if she takes office.
“If she gets into government, I’ll do everything in my power to take her out of power,” Bowman said, adding “If I have to be a patriot, I will.”
When Bowman was asked what he meant by that, Bowman smiled and replied with “Take it any way you want to take it.”
“That sounds like a threat,” the reporter said.
“What do you think a patriot is?” Bowman replied.
“Is that a physical threat?”
“Is it? I won’t have to myself. There’s gonna be a movement that we will go and take them out of power.”
“Sounds like you’re saying that it would be acceptable to assassinate a President.”
“If she’s corrupt, why should she be able to stay in office? Answer that question.”
