Mass Shooting Threat At The Trump International Hotel, Police On Scene

Ever since he won the 2016 Presidential election, Donald Trump's hotels have seen more than their fair share of protests, fires, and now a mass shooting threat has prompted a heavy police response at the Trump International Hotel in Washington D.C. The threat was apparently issued by a far-left Democratic Socialist supporter on Twitter. The anonymous Twitter account said, "I am coming with a gun" ahead of a planned event at the hotel on Tuesday.

Police responded to the Trump International Hotel in Washington D.C. after the anonymous Twitter user threatened to shoot up the event. The event scheduled for Tuesday at the Trump hotel was in support of President Trump who far-left Democratic Socialists can't stand. The account tweeted, "I am coming with a gun and I expect to get numerous bloodstained MAGA hats as trophies." The threat referenced the Trump campaign slogan 'Make American Great Again' which has become iconic in its red trucker hat form.

The tweet was apparently reported to the Metropolitan Police Department and a spokesman named Hugh Carew confirmed to DailyMail they are investigating the threat. The person behind the anonymous Twitter account is a self-proclaimed supporter of a far-left political group but has since altered their account. The irony is that the socialist Democrat supporter apparently owns a firearm because they posted a photo of one with the threat. Metropolitan Police Department vehicles were spotted outside of the hotel Tuesday evening. The DailyMail also reported that the hotel manager said the staff were made aware of the threat and were taking the appropriate security measures in response.

The FBI has not made any public statement regarding the threat which was made by an account which has since been deleted. It is always amazing how people think they can make such threats online and not have it come back on them when you consider that online activity leaves a digital footprint. Computer forensics can recover everything from deleted files to GPS coordinates, dates, geotagging, and other details which can be used to convict an individual in court. A similar situation of a Twitter user's digital footprint leading to their undoing was the man behind the fatal Swatting in Kansas.

The event which is set to take place at the hotel was described as a "MAGA meetup". Twitter user Cassandra Fairbanks tweeted asking who was going to the event tonight? It was in response to that tweet that the mystery account issued the threat. The event is a monthly meetup of "a mix of several different pro-Trump groups including Virginia Women for Trump". Fairbanks and others confirmed their plans to still attend the event which was scheduled to begin around 6:30 p.m. It appears the event has thus far gone on uninhibited.

The threat brought on a massive response on Twitter with many users tagging various authorities to bring the tweet to their attention.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">WOW: Left wing Democratic socialist threatens the life of journalist <a href="">@CassandraRules</a> and the Republican attendees of the MAGA meetup at Trump Tower in DC tonight.<br><br>The recent violence and extremism of the Democratic party is terrorism and should be investigated by the <a href="">@FBI</a>. <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Mike Tokes (@MikeTokes) <a href="">September 12, 2018</a></blockquote>

Soon after posting the threat, the account made their tweets private.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">The account that threatened violence against a MAGA Meetup at the Trump Hotel DC tonight has now protected its tweets.<a href=""></a> <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Zach Everson (@Z_Everson) <a href="">September 11, 2018</a></blockquote>

<script async src="" charset="utf-8"></script>

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">This account <a href="">@Dreamstarjustic</a> threatened to commit a mass shooting at a MAGA rally. Will probably go ignored by <a href="">@FBI</a> and they will be given a blue check mark tomorrow by Twitter and <a href="">@jack</a> then will be a main spokesperson for <a href="">@Keithellison</a>. Tweet now deleted but not lost. <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Nate Woodard (@storm_chaser82) <a href="">September 11, 2018</a></blockquote>

A couple of hours later, the account behind the threat, @Dreamstarjustic, began uploading anime pornography featuring animals with giant penis engaged in sexual activity. The account appears to belong to a bad troll or perhaps a young kid who doesn't know any better. It will be interesting to see if Twitter takes action against the account. When Alex Jones is banned for having a political opinion, shouldn't a person who threatens mass shootings and violence be instantly banned from the platform? Most likely, this far-left social justice warrior will go unpunished as the platform leans decidedly left, even according to its own CEO.
