He reportedly followed up with this an image of Travis Bickle, the political assassin portrayed by Robert De Niro in the iconic movie Taxi Driver next to Trump.

Kornblum followed up his original Facebook message with the following apology (the Facebook page is offline Tuesday).
“Earlier today a frivolous, insensitive political post went out on Facebook.vIt should not have. Magnatone is not a political organization, respects the beliefs and opinions of all people, and does business accordingly. I personally share these values of our brand. I sincerely regret this careless mistake, and apologize to anyone, anywhere, who may have been offended. I can assure you this will not happen again. Thank you.”
Many people, including talk radio host John Cardillo, have reported the incident to law enforcement and Secret Service through social media.
On Sunday, Trump received another threat from a British columnist.
India Knight is a columnist for the Sunday Times UK and she absolutely hates Donald Trump. Her Twitter page is filled with hate-Trump tweets and retweets.
She must be a very objective writer, look at this next tweet. In it she wonders why the assassination is taking so long. This tweet is still on her twitter page as recently as Monday.
These people can say anything they want.
The assassination is taking such a long time.

Imagine if people threatened to kill Barack Obama?
I say this ! For eight years we had a man that did nothing to help our country at all , he did nothing to help with race relations, he did as he wished with his executive order after order which did nothing but put America even further and further in debt and divided this country between police and young black men we set back and watched his failed policies such as Obama care ,TPP, Iran money grab,just to list a few his giving our tax dollars away and steal the Media was silent , Now Trump comes in and wins the election without hardly any help from the Media or anyone else Trumps message was heard loud and clear by hard working Americans all over this country that only wanted to put America First , the man is no racist he’s no hater no more then any other person ever set in the oval office he’s only trying to help and for you that say stuff about trying to kill one of the greatest men to ever hold this position shame on you, that’s the President of the United States I’m offended to say the least my President deserves better then the last Idiot in office I hope and Pray you get a jail sentence for many years .
This deeply offends me as an American citizen. Why aren’t these nutter butters locked up?
SNAP gator road.
Wow you liberals are some hateful crazy people. If anything happens to him, I hope that every threat mentioned anywhere will make your lives miserable. Watch what you wish for, someone may get as crazy as you and retlaiate.
Comments like this just show how ignorant and hopeless people have become. They always release their anger without thought. Trump cannot be blamed for the problems we face today, these problems were caused by career politicians and clearly Trump has never been a paid liar. He may not get the facts 100 percent right all the time but neither did others before him. Obama ran his campaign in 52 states but no one cared, it was a simple mistake. Trump has never had a break from the bashing but he. Ontinues to move forward.
