Broward Man Accused of Threatening to Kill President Trump Denied Bond

first_imgA Broward County man who is accused of threatening to kill President Trump in a Facebook Live video was denied bond in Fort Lauderdale federal court on Wednesday.Prosecutors from the U.S. Attorney’s Office had asked that Chauncy Devonte Lump be held on pre-trial detention, arguing that he is a danger to the community. Judge Patrick Hunt agreed.The 26-year-old is facing a federal charge of threats against the President of the United States, in addition to a county charge of making a false bomb report.The criminal complaint states that he posted a seven-minute video on Facebook Live on January 3 under the username “BlackMan Vs America,” in which he threatened multiple times to kill the President.“He killed my leader, and I have to kill him. I am ready for Donald,” Lump says in the video.According to authorities, Lump made the video in response to the death of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani, who was killed by an American drone strike in Baghdad, Iraq earlier this month.“I need to find the Donald, because if I don’t find him, I am going to have to blow up Broward County,” Lump adds, according to the complaint.The report also states that Lump had “what appears to be a loaded AK-47” in the Facebook Live.Lump admitted to law enforcement officials that he made the video and told them “the threats in the video were intended to be a joke,” according to the criminal complaint.“However, at no point in the video did Lump claim he was joking,” the complaint adds.Court records show that Lump lives in an Oakland Park apartment and holds a concealed weapon/firearm permit in Florida.

Barack Obama endorses Joe Biden

first_imgFormer President Barack Obama has officially endorsed Joe Biden’s bid to become the next president of the US.The two-term president relayed his approval for Biden in a video message Tuesday originally posted on Twitter.“Choosing Joe to be my vice president was one of the best decisions I ever made, and he became a close friend. And I believe Joe has all the qualities we need in a president right now,” Obama said in part, in the video message.Obama also spoke briefly about the coronavirus and how he believes Biden is someone who will be able to bring the country together during these times and would put the country above his own agenda:“Joe has the character and the experience to guide us through one of our darkest times and heal us through a long recovery,” Obama said.“And I know he’ll surround himself with good people – experts, scientists, military officials who actually know how to run the government and care about doing a good job running the government, and know how to work with our allies, and who will always put the American people’s interests above their own.”Despite his endorsement of Biden over Bernie Sanders, Obama let it be known that he has no qualms with him:“Bernie’s an American original – a man who has devoted his life to giving voice to working people’s hopes, dreams, and frustrations,” Obama said. “He and I haven’t always agreed on everything, but we’ve always shared a conviction that we have to make America a fairer, more just, more equitable society.”Obama then went on to say that both Biden and Sanders understand that the world has changed and what needs to be done to ensure our future.“If I were running today, I wouldn’t run the same race or have the same platform as I did in 2008. The world is different; there’s too much unfinished business for us to just look backwards. We have to look to the future,” Obama said.“Bernie understands that. And Joe understands that. It’s one of the reasons that Joe already has what is the most progressive platform of any major party nominee in history,” Obama said. “Because even before the pandemic turned the world upside down, it was already clear that we needed real structural change.”last_img read more
