New York Man Arrested After Threatening to Kill President Donald Trump


A man from Queens, New York has been arrested after he threatened to murder President Donald Trump.

According to a criminal complaint, Thomas Welnicki made the threat back in July of 2020.

Welnicki allegedly voluntarily told U.S. Capitol Police in a phone call that if President Trump didn’t accept the results of the 2020 election, he would ‘acquire weapons’ to ‘take him down.’

He also made several calls to the Secret Service in 2021, where he made similar threats.

Additionally, the document claims that Welnicki threatened to kill any representatives or senators who supported Trump.

Welnicki claimed that there was a $350,000 reward put out for someone to kill Trump and as many as 12 representatives.


Our friends over at Newsmax broke the story:

According to a criminal complaint unsealed on Monday, Thomas Welnicki, of Rockaway Beach, New York, expressed his interest in killing Trump in a July 2020 interview with U.S. Capitol Police and in several phone calls in 2021 to the Secret Service.



It comes as no surprise, but several mainstream media sources had nothing to say about this story.

However, CNBC does have more details, including Welnicki’s direct comments:

“Welnicki bragged about how easy it was for him to acquire a firearm and added, “I don’t want to hurt anyone, but I will stand up to fascism,’” the complaint says.

“At the end of the interview, Welnicki stated, “I really hope that God takes [Individual-1] out,” it adds.
