Mohammed Omar Haji Mohammed just got some very bad news. This guy was disgruntled after he lost his job and it seemed he wanted to take it out on America.
The FBI was tipped off that he was up to no good after people read some suspicious social media posts like:
“Whoever knows why I came to America wait for the urgent news on television screens and victory is from Allah.”
The cops caught up to him in a Walmart and arrested him, but it wasn’t until after they translated the tapes (he was speaking Arabic) did the FBI realized he was threatening Trump. So they hit him with new charges.
From The AP:
A Florida man accused of trying to slash a Walmart employee with scissors now faces federal charges after allegedly threatening President Donald Trump while he was being arrested.
Federal court records show Mohammed Omar Haji Mohammed, 36, is charged with making threats against the president during the July 8 altercation. A Secret Service affidavit says Mohammed tried to slash a Walmart employee during a disagreement at the customer service desk, then yelled threats in Arabic that were recorded on body cameras by police who responded.
The alleged threats, translated into English by the FBI, include: “We are coming for you Trump. We are coming for you with knives. God will send angels to destroy you.”
And this: “l need Trump cut. I want to cut, two portions.”
The affidavit says Mohammed had made suspicious Facebook posts about doing something that would be newsworthy.
Those posts caught the attention of an anonymous tipster who let authorities know two days before the Walmart incident that Mohammed seemed to be poised to take some action and had recently been fired from his job at a local Quickies restaurant.
The tipster, according to the Secret Service, said Mohammad at been “acting strange” and had “become more withdrawn” since losing his job.
One Mohammed Facebook post read: “Whoever knows why I came to America wait for the urgent news on television screens and victory is from Allah.”
