Illinois state senator Martin Sandoval was forced to apologize after a violent display occurred at his fundraiser where his supporters performed a brutal mock assassination of President Donald Trump.

The fundraiser took place at the Klein Creek Golf Club where donors donated at least $250 to Sandoval in order to attend. The photos were leaked over Facebook, and Sandoval is pictured posing with the man who held the fake weapon and conducted the mock assassination. It is unknown whether Sandoval was aware of the violent display that took place at his event.
“The incident that took place is unacceptable,” he said. “I don’t condone violence toward the President or anyone else. I apologize that something like this happened at my event.”
Top officials of the Democrat and Republican parties in Illinois are speaking out against the display as well.
“As our nation grapples with the epidemic of gun violence, purposely pointing a fake gun at anyone is insensitive and wrong,” Democrat Governor J.B. Pritzker said. “I condemn actions like the ones displayed in the pictures because they lack the civility our politics demands.”
“The tragedies in El Paso and Gilroy have demonstrated how hate-filled political rhetoric can fuel violence,” said Maura Possley, who works as the spokesperson for Illinois Democrats. “These images are unacceptable and dangerous. The place to make our voices heard against Trump is at the ballot box.”
“The apology from Sen. Sandoval for the detestable pictures from his event depicting an assassination of President Trump is too little, too late,” Illinois GOP Chairman Tim Schneider said through a spokesman.
“Dangerous imagery like this will be condemned and seen as inappropriate by people of sound mind; however, a mentally unstable individual who wants to harm President Trump might find them as an inspiration. It’s inexcusable for an elected official to allow the promotion of violence in any way. If the individual pictured is a staffer or volunteer, they should be terminated immediately,” he added.
Trump’s aide Kellyanne Conway believes the pictures should be a litmus test for Democrats, as the party continues to radicalize as they grow more desperate to stop the President.
Every Democrat should be asked if they support or disavow this. https://t.co/7nRXtzIXqz

Led nationally by the anti-Israel and rabidly socialist “Squad” of freshmen female Reps. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), the Democrats are getting more violent and extreme in their opposition to Trump and his MAGA agenda.
WATCH: Father of Eight Year Old Girl Killed by Black Lives Matter Rioters Rips Movement’s Hypocrisy
The father was addressing his daughter’s killers.
The father of an eight year old girl killed by armed Black Lives Matter rioters in Atlanta excoriated his daughter’s killers for their hypocrisy, pointing out that they had killed a black child while “protesting” under the auspices of the movement.
Secoriya Williamson was speaking at an Atlanta City Council meeting. His daughter, eight year old Secoriea Turner, was shot and killed when armed protestors of the Black Lives Matter movement opened fire on a vehicle she was riding in that crossed over an illegal road barrier that the rioters had set up. Turner was killed near the parking lot of the Wendy’s in which Rayshard Brooks was shot after stealing a police officer’s taser, an event that set off a firestorm of Black Lives Matter protests in the city.

“They say black lives matter… You killed your own. You killed your own this time. Just because of a barrier? They killed my baby because she crossed a barrier? You killed a child… She didn’t do nothing to nobody.”
The killing of an eight year old child is an utterly unspeakable crime, to which the police shooting of an armed suspect resisting arrest pales in comparison to. Sadly, the death of Turner will receive only a small fraction of the media coverage and community outrage in comparison to the shooting death of Brooks.
Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms acknowledged the heinous nature of the crime while speaking at the council meeting, admitting that the death of Turner far outweighed concerns over the supposed misconduct of the Atlanta police.
“You shot and killed a baby. And there wasn’t just one shooter; there were at least two shooters. An eight-year-old baby. If you want people to take us seriously, and you don’t want us to lose this movement, then we can’t lose each other.”
Arrests are yet to be made in the shooting death of the child as of Monday morning.
