Death Threat to Trump at Protest: ‘He’ll Be Dead Within a Week’
SAN DIEGO — Hundreds of protesters gathered outside a Donald Trump rally on Friday, chanting “f**k Donald Trump” and holding obscene signs — including one that included a death threat against Trump should he win the presidency in November.
The young protester held up a sign that read: “If TRUMP wins He’ll be DEAD with in A week The Cartel wont have his Bullsh*t.”
At one point, while music played, the crowd began chanting the Spanish obscenity, “puto,” together with “Donald Trump.”
Still more protesters held signs that read, “Trump eres hijo de puta” and “Coachella contra el puto Trump.”
Mexican flags waved as the crowd flooded the street in front of the San Diego Convention Center, where Trump was speaking.
At one point bottles were thrown at police, and in the course of the protests, several people were detained. Several piñatas depicted Trump, including one whose head had been severed in the street, with the rest just a crumpled bit of papier-mâché.
One protester wearing a Donald Trump wig also wore lipstick and danced around to the rap song “F**k Donald Trump” while holding dollar bills, brandishing his middle fingers, and appearing to occasionally grab his crotch.
For the most part, protesters’ signs did little more than insult Trump over his looks, compare him to Adolf Hitler, and call him a stupid bigot.
Nearing the end of the rally, three young people came out of the building, announcing that they had been kicked out. One of them identified the group as supporters of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
Inside the rally, Trump supporters were enthusiastic and positive. Only a few protesters had to be removed from the crowd.

Death Threat to Trump July 14, 2015
Donald Trump is taking the death threats from El Chapo seriously.
As new photos revealed how billionaire cartel boss Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman made his great escape from prison, Donald Trump beefed up his security detail in response to a threat the fugitive drug lord purportedly tweeted.
“We have officials all over the place, including right outside hanging out in trees,” Trump told reporters at a ribbon-cutting ceremony for Albemarle Estate, his new winery and bed and breakfast in Charlottesville, Va.
Trump arrived with extra brawn, including two state troopers who escorted him from his helicopter.
The Donald is on edge after a threatening tweet fired off from an account that apparently belongs to Sinaloa Cartel king El Chapo.
Guzman broke out of a maximum-security prison in Mexico , using a red motorbike to travel through a sophisticated, milelong tunnel that began under his cell’s shower before emerging at a remote construction site .
“Keep f–king around and I’m gonna make you swallow your whore words you f–king whitey milks–tter,” the user @ElChap0Gusman taunted Trump in the menacing message, which reached hundreds of thousands of Twitter followers.
“I’m better than them,” El Chapo later tweeted about Trump and his entourage.
The account’s authenticity has yet to be verified, but Trump took the threat seriously, alerting FBI agents.
Thomas DiMassimo was arrested after jumping the barrier and rushing the stage at a Donald Trump rally in Vandalia, Ohio.
Donald Trump denounced the protests that led him to cancel a scheduled rally the previous night in Chicago, calling them “a planned attack” that was “professionally done.”
During the event in Dayton, Ohio, DiMassimo tried to rush the stage as Secret Service officers covered the GOP front-runner, who was unharmed.
Clashes broke out Friday night between protesters and Trump supporters after the campaign announced the rally would be canceled more than 30 minutes after it was scheduled to start. Hundreds of protesters had packed into the University of Illinois at Chicago venue for the rally, prompting the campaign to call off the event.
The protests and fights in Chicago were just the latest in a string of increasingly heated and at-times violent confrontations breaking out at rallies for the candidate in the Republican presidential race. And they come as Trump has repeatedly suggested protesters should face more violent repercussions for disrupting his rallies.
“We’re all together and we want to get along with everybody, but when they have organized, professionally staged wise guys we’ve got to fight back, we’ve got to fight back,” Trump said in his first rally since the canceled Chicago event.
As he did the previous night in a round of phoned in TV interviews, Trump didn’t walk back any of his rhetoric Saturday. He again claimed that neither the tone of his campaign nor his supporters were to blame for any violence at his rallies. “They want me to tell my people please be nice be nice. My people are nice,” Trump said . “They were taunted, they were harassed by these other people.”
The man arrested at a Donald Trump rally in Las Vegas told authorities he tried to grab an officer’s gun so he could kill the candidate, the Secret Service said.
A complaint filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Nevada charges Michael Steven Sandford with an act of violence on restricted grounds. He was expected to appear in court later in the day as the investigation continued.
Authorities said Sandford went to a Trump rally on Saturday at the Treasure Island Casino and approached a Las Vegas police officer to say he wanted an autograph from Trump. The report says Sanfford was arrested after grabbing the handle of an officer’s gun in an attempt to remove it.
It wasn’t immediately clear if he had an attorney. Las Vegas police say Sandford is 19.
He had a United Kingdom driver’s license with him at the time, according to the complaint signed by Secret Service Special Agent Joseph Hall.
Agents said Sandford told them he had been in the U.S. for about a year and a half, lived in Hoboken, New Jersey, and drove to the San Bernardino, California, area before coming to Las Vegas on June 16.
Sandford told officers he had been planning an assassination for about a year and was convinced he would die in the attempt. He said he also reserved a ticket for a Trump rally in Phoenix, scheduled for later in the day, as a backup.
He told authorities that he went to the Battlefield Vegas shooting range the day before the rally and fired 20 rounds from a 9mm Glock pistol to learn how to use it. Police detectives who visited the range spoke with an employee who confirmed that he provided Sandford shooting lessons, according to the complaint.
About 1,500 people attended the Las Vegas rally, which was held in the Mystere Theater inside the casino. Attendees had to pass through metal detectors manned by Secret Service, police and casino security officials.
Federal Magistrate Judge George Foley said at a hearing Monday that Michael Steven Sandford, 20, was a potential danger to the community and a flight risk. Sandford, who wore leg irons and appeared to tremble during the court hearing, is charged with an act of violence on restricted grounds and was assigned a federal public defender.
He has not entered a plea.
Death Threat to Trump, all in a day’s work.
