Violent threat against Donald Trump has Republicans worried sick

The Left is taking things way too far. Now they’re threatening to do the worst thing imaginable.

And this violent threat against Donald Trump has Republicans worried sick.

A New York Democratic congressional candidate applauded the House’s passage of a $60 billion measure to support Ukraine while hoping the MAGA movement would die, according to a message posted on X.

“Slava Ukraine,” New York congressional candidate Nate McMurray wrote on X Saturday afternoon.

“Die MAGA, die. You lose,” he said of former President Trump’s fans and those who support the “Make America Great Again” campaign.

McMurray’s post came after the U.S. House passed a package on Saturday that would pay $60 billion to Ukraine in the midst of the country’s protracted war with Russia. The aid package passed 311 to 112, with more Republicans voting against the bill (112) than for it (101).

McMurray is running to represent New York’s 26th Congressional District, which encompasses sections of Erie and Niagara counties in the state’s western region, after previously serving as the town supervisor of Grand Island and as an attorney.

Some conservatives have complained about continuing to finance Ukraine while the U.S. is dealing with a border crisis, and some voted against the package because it did not contain cash to secure the U.S. border.

“Today, I voted no… These bills were brought forward under a contrived process to achieve a pre-determined outcome – a $100 billion, unpaid-for foreign aid package while failing to secure the border,” Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, said.

“For months, House Republicans – specifically, Speaker Mike Johnson – have been unequivocal that we would not send billions in additional aid to Ukraine without securing our own border first. This package represents a complete reversal of a position that previously unified the Republican conference, despite the clear & present danger the southern border represents to US national security.”

“States and cities across our nation are grappling with the consequences of Biden’s border crisis, inflation continues to squeeze the budgets of every American household and our country is over $34 trillion in debt,” Rep. Ben Cline, R-Va, said Saturday.

“As I continue fighting for the people of Virginia’s 6th District, I urge my colleagues in Congress and the Biden administration to listen to the American people and put their concerns first.”

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., a Trump supporter, has slammed Speaker Johnson, R-La., for advocating the bill’s approval, labeling him a “traitor to our country.” Greene is also leading a movement to remove Johnson as speaker.

“Zelensky thanks Speaker Mike Johnson (D-Ukraine) for sending $61 BILLION of your hard-earned tax dollars to fuel a foreign war. Johnson once again passed a bill with the help of Democrats while the majority of the Republican majority voted against it. Not only is Mike Johnson a traitor to our conference, he’s a traitor to our country,” Greene posted on X on Saturday.

McMurray received backlash on social media for his X post “Die MAGA die,” with others claiming he appears to be advocating for the deaths of MAGA movement voters. Others claimed they reported McMurray to X for encouraging violence.

McMurray responded to Trump fans on Saturday, suggesting the MAGA movement should “expire,” “fade” or “disintegrate.”

“Dear MAGA: Send your regards to MAGA Mike, not me. He loves freedom and Ukraine too. You see, not even your leaders REALLY like your sick, twisted anti-freedom, anti-American MAGA movement. It should… let me see, what word should I use? Expire? Fade? Or maybe something stronger that starts with a ‘d’ Disintegrate?” McMurray continued in another post Saturday.

Fox News Digital contacted McMurray’s campaign on Sunday morning and sent a message to the congressional candidate on social media, but did not receive an instant response regarding the posts and their accompanying complaints.

McMurray is currently facing a lawsuit from his Democratic opponent in the House election, state Sen. Tim Kennedy, who petitioned a state court last week to remove McMurray’s name from the Democratic primary ballot.
