Donald Trump’s online critics have proposed an alternative to his anti-terrorism policies: Assassinate him instead. Secret Service agents assigned to protect Trump since Nov. 11th, may be working overtime in the wake of his comments on halting Muslim immigration into the U.S. A slew of death threats against the billionaire were tweeted after a campaign stop in South Carolina on Monday.

“Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life.”
Trump’s extreme critics saw no irony between his statements on Islamic radicals and their calls for his assassination.
The billionaire defended his position during an appearance on CNN Tuesday morning, telling host Chris Cuomo that a rejection of his plan is tantamount to putting “blinders” on.
