And one rising star in the party took that hatred to an all-time low.
But this time, he made one massive threat against Trump that crossed a red line.
Donald Trump is among the most hated Presidents in American history by the far left.
Since he stunned the world with his upset defeat of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, Trump has only made Democrats hate him even more with his successful America First agenda of lowering taxes, bringing jobs back into the United States, and battling illegal immigration.
It comes as no surprise then to see that Democrats are now taking their hatred of the President to new lows.
Last year, a Democrat lawmaker in Missouri publicly issued a death threat against the President, while over the past two years, Antifa mobs across the country have damaged property, attacked Trump supporters, and vowed to hurt Trump and his family if they ever get a chance.
And with the dangerous rhetoric on the left only growing by the day, it was only a matter of time before more threats against the President were issued.
Enter, Illinois State Senator Martin Sandoval (D-Chicago).
Sandoval recently held a political fundraiser, and the theme ended up including a mock assassination attempt on the President.
CBS Chicago reports, “An Illinois state senator apologized Sunday night after controversial photos surfaced from a local fundraiser. The photos, posted online on Friday night, show someone in a mask depicting President Donald Trump, wearing traditional Mexican clothes, and taking part in a mock assassination.”
This is a new low for the Democratic Party.
But for Sandoval, it may have been one of the worst mistakes of his political career.
Mark Maxwell, a reporter for the state capitol in Illinois, tweeted about the incident.
“A political fundraiser for @SenatorSandoval simulates an assassination attempt against a mock @realDonaldTrump decked out in Mexican garb. Looks like a man pointed a fake assault weapon at the fake President to pose for a picture,” Maxwell reported.
It was a move that could destroy Sandoval’s career, let alone any ambitions he had for higher office.
And it’s all because of his hatred for President Trump.
Even Illinois’ Democratic governor had to condemn the incident, stating: “As our nation grapples with the epidemic of gun violence, purposely pointing a fake gun at anyone is insensitive and wrong. I condemn actions like the ones displayed in the pictures because they lack the civility our politics demands.”
While it’s unclear whether or not the FBI or Secret Service are investigating the incident, it stands as another example in a long line of Democratic threats made against President Trump.
And it’s a massive mistake that could land Sandoval in serious trouble.
Do you think that Sandoval made a mistake by staging a fake assassination of Trump at his fundraiser?
