Muslim flight student was furious that President front-runner Donald Trump implied that muslims are dangerous…SO HE THREATENS TO KILL HIM
Believe that Islam is a religion of peace — or else. I am not a supporter of Trump but I firmly believe that Americans ought to be able to express controversial opinions without being threatened with death as a result. Those days are vanishing. And it’s ironic that Trump, who attacked me after the jihad attack at our Garland free speech event, would now be threatened for exercising his free speech. I hope he learns something.
ORANGE, Calif. (AP) — A flight student from Egypt is facing deportation from the United States after being investigated by federal agents for posting on his Facebook page that he was willing to kill Donald Trump and the world would thank him.
While U.S. prosecutors have not charged 23-year-old Emadeldin Elsayed with a crime, immigration authorities arrested him last month at the Los Angeles-area flight school he attended and now are trying to deport him, attorney Hani Bushra said Wednesday.

U.S. Secret Service agents interviewed Elsayed in early February after he posted a photo of Trump on Facebook and wrote he was willing to serve a life sentence for killing the billionaire and the world would thank him, Bushra said. The agents returned eight days later and told him federal prosecutors had declined to charge him but said his visa to attend flight school had been revoked. He was arrested by immigration authorities.
Elsayed said he wrote the message because he was angered by Trump’s comments about Muslims. He said he immediately regretted it, and he never intended to harm anyone.
