(UPDATED with DOJ Response) Donald Trump Issues Specific Threat Against Everyone on His Social Media: If You Go After Me, I’m Coming After You!


FRIDAY EVENING: The Dept of Justice has asked for an order of protection against Trump because of the Tweet below. Kyle Cheney of Politico reported this development.


FRIDAY AFTERNOON Donald Trump may be in violation of his orders from the federal court in Washington — which he received just yesterday.

Trump issued a specific warning on his Truth Social platform at around 5pm today/ It reads

It will be interesting to see what Jack Smith does about this Tweet, which has been up for an hour and has been copied over and over. Twitter or X will likely leave it there. Elon Musk finds all of this amusing.
