I guess we shouldn’t be surprised… but this is frightening.
Sources have confirmed with Newsmax that 2016 GOP presidential candidates Ben Carson and Donald Trump are slated to receive Secret Service protection due to death threats they have been receiving from lunatic liberals and Islamic radicals.
The threats to Carson have been especially “off the charts” after comments he made a few weeks ago about the idea of America electing a Muslim president. He made it clear that he would not be in support of it.
Plus, according to one source, there is evidence to suggest that domestic home-grown terrorists intend to target at least one political candidate, if not more.
“It is widely believed ISIS would like to strike a major political target in the U.S.,” the source told Newsmax.
Between the two candidates, however, only front-runner Donald Trump — whose public presence has been growing since he announced for office in June — has officially requested a Secret Service protection detail.
“I want to put them on notice because they should have a liability,” Trump said during an interview with The Hill last week. “Personally, I think if Obama were doing as well as me, he would’ve had Secret Service (earlier). I have by far the biggest crowds.”
Both candidates are slated to receive two dozen agents each as early as next week, Newsmax reported. Carson initially resisted the Secret Service’s request to protect him, but once officials shared some of their intelligence with him, he complied.
