Florida Man Arrested After Posting Threat To Assassinate Trump

A 51-year-old man from Miami Beach with a history of mental illness has been arrested after posting a video threatening to kill President-elect Donald Trump during the inauguration. Dominic Puopolo, who tweets under the name "Jesus Christ," has made threats against other political figures in the past. He was arrested on Tuesday, the day after posting the video. His bond was set at $1 million.

Puopolo's mother was a passenger on one of the hijacked planes that crashed into the World Trade Center on 9/11. She was eulogized by Hillary Clinton.

It is unknown at this time if Puopolo had plane tickets or other means of transportation to Washington.
