On Thursday Chappelle-Nadal posted on her Facebook page that she hoped someone would assassinate the president.

Maria Chappelle-Nadal said in a Facebook comment that she hoped President Donald Trump would be assassinated.

In response to the events in Charlottesville, Trump condemned the white supremacists, but insisted repeatedly that "both sides" shared blame in the violence that led up to the auto ramming. "I represent a district that is challenged with so much", she said.

She said that people are becoming increasingly scared of white supremacists.

"When we were protesting [about what happened] with Charlottesville, it triggered people who were in Ferguson". There are people who are afraid of going out in the streets. She's regularly received death threats since her activism in Ferguson, and after her post was made public today she's received hundreds more.
