A supporter of President Donald Trump was caught on video Friday threatening an ABC News crew with a bullet to the head.
ABC News 2020 campaign reporter Will Steakin shared a short clip of the unidentified man’s verbal threat on Twitter Friday afternoon.
“ABC News, I can’t believe it. Put a bullet in your head, buddy. I got one,” the man said while standing in line outside a Trump campaign rally in Ocala, Florida.
The female Trump supporter being interviewed by the news crew could be seen bursting into laughter after hearing the man’s alarming threat.

Twitter users were quick to condemn the man’s threat, with many tagging the FBI in the viral tweet.
I hope the @FBIMiamiFL @FBI take these comments seriously & find out who these people are. This rhetoric is NOT okay & people are going to get hurt if not killed if this is not stopped. What is wrong w/ these people? My God!
