Man arrested for threatening to assassinate Trump at inauguration


Why U.S. did not invite Buhari for event, by Fayose
A man has been arrested in Florida, United States for posting online that he would kill President-elect Donald Trump at his inauguration today.

“This is January16, 2017. I was requested to type this in and post it. Yes, I will be at the review stand, the inauguration and I’m going to kill President Trump, President-elect Trump today,” Dominic Puopolo said in a video posted on Monday.

Puopolo, 51, was arrested on Tuesday and allegedly admitted to making the threat. He was ordered for a mental evaluation at a court hearing on Wednesday.

In Nigeria, Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose, has described the refusal of the United States government to invite President Muhammadu Buhari for Trump’s inauguration as a clear signal that he does not enjoy international relevance any more.


According to a statement signed by his Special Assistant on Public Communication and New Media, Mr. Lere Olayinka, Fayose said there is no doubt that Buhari is not in the good books of the incoming U.S. government, arguing that Buhari’s frequent visit to U.S. during Obama administration and the romance was due to the tacit support given to Buhari by Obama to win the 2015 election.
