Federal agents arrested an Illinois woman for threatening to kill former President Trump and his 17-year-old son, Barron, according to an unsealed criminal complaint in Florida.
Tracy Marie Fiorenza, 41, was charged with transmitting threats to kill or injure another person, which carries up to five years in prison, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Fiorenza, who is allegedly an anti-Trump former social studies teacher, emailed the threats to the headmaster of Barron Trump’s school from her home in Plainfield, a Chicago suburb.
“I will state that I will shoot Donald Trump Sr. AND Barron Trump straight in the face at any opportunity I get!” Fiorenza wrote on May 21.
A week later, she emailed the headmaster again: “I am going to slam a bullet in Baron [sic] Trump’s head with his father IN SELF DEFENSE!”
Secret Service agents interviewed her in June in their Chicago office where she allegedly admitted to sending the threats.
The New York Post reports she wore a skull t-shirt to her first court appearance and is in the custody of the U.S. Marshals until she is transferred to Florida for a criminal hearing.
Court Watch first reported on the threats:
A social media account purportedly associated with Fiorenza shows a repeated pattern of focusing on the younger Trump, screenshots of sending written letters to his previous school, and her false accusations that the Trump family are part of a “Hollywood pedophile/rape ring.”
Fiorenza shared memes of Trump being arrested with “I have a dream…” and images of him being hanged from a tree. She called for Trump to be arrested in March.
