A 20-year-old man was detained after he threatened to bomb Saturday’s Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Connecticut.
Sean Morkys was arrested in Waterbury by Connecticut State Police.
They state he posted on Twitter that he was going to explode a bomb at the Republican front-runner’s Waterbury rally.
Cops state Sean didn’t present an immediate danger to the public.
Cops state the United States Secret Service got in touch with them Saturday afternoon after they say Sean posted on Twitter, “Is someone going to bomb the trump rally or am I going to have to?”
Cops stated that tweet was followed by another cautioning a friend to have his loved ones leave the rally so they would not be harmed.
Police tracked the tweets to a Waterbury home, in which they found Sean. After establishing he did not present an immediate threat, he was arrested and released on $25,000 bond.
Nobody responded to a phone number for the Waterbury home. Sean did not instantly answer a separate request for remark.
A confident Trump informed supporters at the rally that he is “not toning it down,” one day after his chief adviser guaranteed Republican officials the GOP front-runner will show more self-control on the campaign trail.
At the Waterbury rally, the first of two getting held Saturday in Connecticut, the Republican front-runner joked regarding how it is simple to be presidential, making a string of faux-somber faces. However, he stated he can be serious and policy-minded when he needs to be.
Trump is campaigning in Connecticut prior to Tuesday’s quintet of primaries in the Northeast, which includes Connecticut, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Delaware.
