Suspect Roger Hedgpeth, 25, was apprehended outside of the White House on Sunday while allegedly holding a knife and muttering about how he wanted to assassinate President Donald Trump.
A Secret Service officer reported that Hedgpheth told him: “I am here to assassinate President Donald Trump… I have a knife to do it with.”
Hedgpheth is from Florida and the police report describes him as a “critically missing/endangered person” and “mental health consumer.” He was armed with a 3.5-inch blade that was attached to his left hip while there was an empty pistol holster on his right hip when he was apprehended, according to the police report.
This is at least the second time that a would-be assassin made an attempt at President Trump’s life. Illegal alien Michael Sandford attempted to grab an officer’s firearm at a Trump rally in 2016 because of the murderous rage that the leftist harbored for Trump, who was a candidate at the time.
Sandford is now a free man after being given extreme leniency from the courts. He only served five months in prison – a glorified slap on the wrist – and then was deported back to the United Kingdom in 2017 after he received a generous plea deal from sympathetic government officials:
A British man jailed in the US for trying to grab a policeman’s gun at a Donald Trump rally – in order “to shoot and kill” the then presidential candidate – has returned to the UK.
Michael Sandford landed at Heathrow airport on Thursday, having been released nearly five months into a year-long sentence, his family’s lawyer said.
The incident took place at a rally in Las Vegas in June last year.
Sandford, then aged 20, approached officers at the event, saying he wanted Trump’s autograph.
But he then made a grab for an officer’s holstered weapon. He later told police he had intended to assassinate Trump.
Sandford, who has autism and suffers from mental health problems, was diagnosed as having had a psychotic episode at the time of the incident.
He was sentenced at a federal court in Las Vegas in December last year to a year in jail after admitting charges of being an illegal alien in possession of a firearm and disrupting an official function.
He faced up to 20 years in jail had he been found guilty of the offences at a trial. He had initially denied the charges but pleaded guilty following a plea agreement.
Speaking after the sentencing, Sandford’s mother, Lynne, said the family, who are from Dorking in Surrey, were “absolutely delighted” and “over the moon with the sentence.”
The ecosystem of non-stop hate created by the Democrat Party and the fake news media surrounding President Trump is resulting in leftist fanatics being radicalized and driven to violence.
President Trump Shuts Down Minnesota Governor’s Demand for $500 Million in Riot Repair Funds
He wanted the taxpayer to pay for the riots.
President Donald Trump formally declined a request from Minnesota Governor Tim Walz to declare Minneapolis a federal disaster zone in the wake of the George Floyd race riots on Saturday, preventing the city’s Democratic governor and mayor from bilking the taxpayer for bailout funds to repair the damage they tacitly allowed through refusal to halt the riots.
Walz’s office confirmed that the White House had refused his request for an emergency declaration on Saturday in a press release, explaining that the governor had hoped the federal government would clean up the mess.
“The Governor is disappointed that the federal government declined his request for financial support,” said a spokesperson in a statement. “As we navigate one of the most difficult periods in our state’s history, we look for support from our federal government to help us through.”
The rioting in Minneapolis may have been among the most destructive ever to occur in the United States, devastating the community, causing what some estimate to be $500 million in damages to property, and damaging more than 500 buildings. Many Americans probably wouldn’t know it, as the corporate media has largely focused on promoting the activities of the rioters, falsely describing them as peaceful protestors, allowing the model of community destruction to be exported to other American communities.
Both Governor Walz and neoliberal Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey had waited fecklessly to deploy the Minnesota National Guard to contain the dangerous situation, hoping to appease the raging mob as the rioters torched a Minneapolis police precinct and destroyed countless small businesses in the city’s downtown area.
At the very least, the state’s Democratic officials won’t be rewarded with a hefty federal bailout as a result of their own irresponsibility and political fecklessness in refusing to crack down on criminal rioters. Sadly, it’ll be members of the Minneapolis community who pay for the cowardice of their local officials, and the once-serene upper-class community may never recover, instead morphing into a dilapidated shell of its former self.
