Democratic state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal told local media  she was upset about President Trump’s  controversial comments  on the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.

“You had a group on one side that was bad, and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent. And nobody wants to say that, but I’ll say it right now,” Trump said.

Chappelle-Nadal voiced her frustrations in a Facebook post Thursday morning. And, when replying to one of the post’s many comments, she said, “I hope Trump is assassinated!” Chappelle-Nadal later deleted the comment, and  she told reporters  she “didn’t mean” what she wrote.


And Republican Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens also called for her resignation, saying, “We can have differences in our country, but no one should encourage political violence.” Chappelle-Nadal’s post got the attention of the Secret Service.  The agency told CNN  it is “looking into the comments,” as it does with all threats against the president, vice president and other protected people, regardless of whether the comment was direct, implied or flippant. Chappelle-Nadal  said in a tweet  Thursday she has no plans to resign.
