An Egyptian flight student in California was arrested after threatening to kill the Republican front runner in a Facebook post.
“I am willing to kill Donald Trump and serve a life sentence. The whole world would thank me for doing that,” 23-year-old Emadeldin Elsayed wrote on Facebook according to his attorney, Hani Bushra.
While there was no criminal charges against Elsayed, an immigration judge ordered him to be deported because the flight school had terminated his enrollment, so his student visa was no longer valid.
Bushra told AFP, “This was more angry rhetoric similar to rhetoric that perhaps is even used by Mr Donald Trump himself when he says things like we are going to kill the family members of terrorists and their children and their wives.”
According to Bushra, Elsayed's Facebook post was in relation to Trump's comments on Muslims.
“He has paid $41,000 in tuition and all he wants is some kind of reprieve to get his belongings, sell his car and talk to the school owner about getting reimbursed,” Bushra said, adding that his client just wants to leave the country.
