Twitter is exploding with people calling for president-elect Donald Trump to be assassinated.
The Republican real-estate billionaire beat Hillary Clinton handily to become the next president of the United States, but that hasn’t stopped lots of people calling for somebody to murder him.
If trump wins he will be killed. Believe that. Someone will assassinate him. More chapters for the history books I guess

The Secret Service has a history of investigating threats against the people they protect when the threats originate on Twitter. The Secret Service has not made any public statement since Trump won about whether new threats on Twitter will be investigated.
Trump has already won 289 electoral votes. There is a chance he could rack up an even bigger win because Michigan, Minnesota and New Hampshire all still too close to call.
