In a disturbing turn of events, Stacey Plaskett, a Democrat Del. from the Virgin Islands, was caught on live TV apparently calling for the assassination of former President Donald Trump. During an interview on MSNBC, Plaskett criticized Trump’s handling of classified documents by making a chilling statement, saying, “He needs to be shot.”
While Plaskett quickly attempted to correct herself by adding, “stopped,” the damage was already done. Her comments have sparked outrage across the political spectrum as Americans are left wondering if Democrats are willing to take such drastic actions to eliminate their political opponents.
Imagine the outrage if a Republican said this about a Democrat. https://t.co/EaW7po7xZm

Plaskett’s vile words raise serious questions about Democrats’ commitment to the peaceful transfer of power and the safety of our current and former leaders. It’s clear that Democrats, like Plaskett, will stop at nothing to undermine the Trump administration and its supporters.
Moreover, it’s deeply concerning that Plaskett is a lawmaker who represents US territories, with access to classified information. If a lawmaker can speak in such a reckless and dangerous manner, what else are they willing to do?
Democrats have been making unsubstantiated allegations against President Trump for years now, but calling for his assassination is a new low. This kind of violent rhetoric has no place in US politics, and it’s a reminder that Democrats are willing to do and say anything to advance their radical agenda.
As the country moves forward from what was a contentious election, it’s more important than ever that we come together and work towards a better future for all Americans. However, the shocking comments made by Plaskett prove that Democrats are not interested in unity but rather in dividing the nation and promoting their own interests.
The fact that a Democrat lawmaker called for the assassination of a former President should be a wake-up call for every American who cares about democracy, respect, and decency in politics. We must stand together against such dangerous rhetoric and ensure that our leaders are held to a higher standard.
