Authorities have responded to the threat made regarding the Trump International Hotel meetup in Washington DC after an anonymous threat to shoot up the MAGA meeting there supporting President Donald Trump.
The death threat was made ahead of the planned MAGA Tuesday evening event by an anonymous Twitter account that supports the Democratic Socialists, an extreme far-left political group.
‘I am coming with a gun and i expect to get numerous bloodstained MAGA hats as trophies,’ the account wrote, referencing the Trump campaign slogan ‘Make American Great Again’.
The Metropolitan Police Department is investigating the threat. However, department spokesman Hugh Carew told DailyMail.com, that no further details were immediately available at

MPD vehicles were spotted outside of the hotel on Tuesday evening.
A hotel manager at the Trump International confirmed that staff were aware of the threat and taking appropriate security measures.
The FBI did not immediately respond to requests for comment regarding the threat or the investigation into the matter.
The threat was made by an account that has since been deleted, in response to a tweet by conservative writer Cassandra Fairbanks asking who planned to attend the ‘MAGA meetup’.
Fairbanks described the monthly meeting as ‘a mix of several different pro-Trump groups including Virginia Women for Trump’ in a post on the Gateway Pundit.
The pro-Trump event was scheduled to begin at 6.30pm. Fairbanks and other conservative figures said that they still planned to attend.
