WASHINGTON ― Donald Trump’s former butler has drawn the attention of the Secret Service for threats he’s made online against President Barack Obama.
Anthony Senecal, who served the presumptive Republican nominee at his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida, has a Facebook page filled with incendiary comments, many directed at the president and his family.
“To all my friends on FB, just a short note to you on our pus headed “president” !!!! This character who I refer to as zero (0) should have been taken out by our military and shot as an enemy agent in his first term !!!!!” Senecal wrote in a Facebook post, according to Mother Jones. Senecal also attacked Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.
“Hanging, shooting ― I’d prefer he’d be hung from the portico of the White House, or as I call it, the white mosque,” Senecal said in a phone interview with CNN Thursday.
Trump’s campaign says in an emailed statement that “Tony Senecal has not worked at Mar-a-Lago for years, but nevertheless we totally and completely disavow the horrible statements made by him regarding the President and first family.”
The Secret Service said Thursday it is “aware of this matter and will conduct the appropriate investigation.”
Senecal declined to accept a reporter’s call.
