As Donald Trump’s and Dr. Ben Carson’s poll numbers continually rise, they are now receiving protection from the Secret Service based on credible threats against them.
The news comes on the tail of Trump’s call for the Secret Service to extend their protection to his campaign.
“I want to put them on notice because they should have a liability,” Trump told The Hill last week. “Personally, I think if Obama were doing as well as me he would’ve had Secret Service [earlier]. I have by far the biggest crowds.”
Trump even needled the Secret Service for its tardy response. “They’re in no rush because I’m a Republican. They don’t give a sh*t,” Trump laughed.
According to a source who spoke to Newsmax on Saturday, October 17, the Secret Service and the FBI are becoming alarmed by the growing number of threats that both Carson and Trump are receiving.
Carson in particular has come under threat. In fact, sources say the threats against Carson are “off the charts,” especially since his recent comments that he would not vote for a Sharia-practicing Muslim for president.
But real estate mogul Donald Trump has also come under serious threat with his position against illegal immigrants from south of our border, not to mention his disparaging remarks about Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, the latter of whom has reportedly put a one-hundred-million-dollar bounty on the GOP frontrunner’s head.
