Donald Trump has sent out a statement disavowing what his former butler, Anthony Senecal, wrote about wanting to see Barack Obama killed.
On Thursday, Trump’s presidential campaign issued a statement after Trump’s butler of 17 years posted on his Facebook account that Obama should be killed as an “enemy agent,”according to The Hill.
“Tony Senecal has not worked at Mar-a-Lago for years, but nevertheless we totally and completely disavow the horrible statements made by him regarding the President,” the statement read.
On Wednesday, Senecal reportedly wrote in a post, “To all my friends on FB, just a short note to you on our pus headed ‘president’! This character who I refer to as zero (0) should have been taken out by our military and shot as an enemy agent in his first term!”
“Instead he still remains in office doing every thing he can to gut the America we all know and love,” he added.
Secret Service is reportedly aware of the comments and have said, “The U.S. Secret Service is aware of this matter and will conduct the appropriate investigation,” according to another report.
This is apparently not the first time Senecal has written a post about wanting Obama killed. The report says that in April of last year he wrote, “Looks like that sleezey bastard zero (O) is trying to out maneuver Congress again, if the truth be known this prick needs to be hung for treason!”
