Bernard Kerik, the former New York Police Department Commissioner, expressed concern for President Donald J. Trump during an interview with Newsmax TV.
Following the FBI’s raid of Mar-a-Lago, Kerik said he is “deathly afraid” Trump’s political opponents will attempt to assassinate him.
“If you remember back in 2016, right before he got elected, I was in Washington, DC. I was at a couple of different social events, and I hear people talking, they said the Democrats want this guy so bad that they wouldn’t put assassination behind it,” Kerik told host Eric Bolling. “And I’m gonna tell you something. They’ve tried impeachment, they’ve tried another impeachment, they’ve tried one investigation after another.
“This is about one thing: this is about stopping him from running in 2024. And I’m gonna tell you something, I’m not into conspiracies, I’m not into anti-government rhetoric. This is the first time in my lifetime that I would say I am deathly afraid for Donald Trump. I would not put assassination behind these people.”
Mar-a-Lago was raided by federal authorities on Monday. President Trump was not present and did not receive any indication the raid would happen prior to it taking place.
