FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — A Broward County man faces federal charges for allegedly making death threats against President Donald Trump in response to the killing of Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani, according to court records.
26-year-old Chauncy Devonte Lump faces a federal charge of threats against the President of the United States, along with a county charge of making a false bomb report.
According to a criminal complaint, a detective with the Broward Sheriff’s Office was told by a Facebook employee that a man going by “BlackMan Vs America” posted a video on Facebook Live threatening President Trump.
It is alleged that Lump made comments including “he killed my leader, and I have to kill him. I am ready for Donald,” and “the Feds are watching. I am not afraid of the Feds.” The complaint also stated that Lump is seen with “what appears to be a loaded AK-47” while making some statements.
