Hammer-Wielding Trump Supporter Arrested After Threatening Latino Couple: ‘Get Out Of My Country!’

President Donald Trump has sparked a radical movement led by racism and hatred in America. That being said, this past weekend, a hammer-wielding Trump supporter was arrested after she threatened a Latino couple and told them to go back to their country.

According to KPRC-TV, 60-year-old Constance Lynn Bono was arrested on Sunday after she brought out a hammer and threatened Arturo Corovez and his wife, Dr. Lia Franco.

Bono reportedly told the couple to “go back to Mexico.” The couple is actually from Ecuador.

Dr. Franco has actually been stationed in New Orleans to help take care of COVID-19 patients while she finishes her medical residency.

The couple decided to take a trip to Texas over the weekend to take a break. That’s when they were confronted by the vicious Trump supporter.

They noticed a woman following behind them while driving to a restaurant, and noticed she was displaying a hammer as she drove.

“She stopped behind us,” Cordovez said. “After that she started showing a hammer through the mirror. She was shaking her arm … and cursing at us, I think. I was thinking, what did I do?”

They called 911 and pulled into a gas station, where the woman pulled alongside them and began screaming.

“She said screamed, ‘You Mexicans, get out of my f*cking country, go back to your f*cking country,’” Franco said.

Then the woman got out of her car holding the hammer and made threatening motions before police arrived and took her into custody.

According to the report, Bono was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony with a punishment range of up to 20 years in prison.

If prosecutors believe she was motivated by racism, the charge could be enhanced to a first-degree felony, carrying a possible life sentence.

“I think she needs help, she needs treatment, but that doesn’t justify the fact she needs to follow the laws of her country,” Franco said. “If she broke the laws here, she needs to pay for what she did. But for me as a physician, I think the most important thing is she needs treatment, she needs help.”

Trump Is Officially Under Investigation For Fraud By The NY District Attorney: NYT

Published

on

The Manhattan district attorney’s office is “investigating President Donald Trump and his company for bank and insurance fraud,” the New York Times reported Monday.

According to The Times, “the office of the district attorney, Cyrus R. Vance Jr., made the disclosure in a new federal court filing arguing Mr. Trump should have to comply with its subpoena seeking eight years of his personal and corporate tax returns.”

“The reports, including investigations into the president’s wealth and an article on the congressional testimony of his former lawyer and fixer, Michael D. Cohen, said that the president may have illegally inflated his net worth and the value of his properties to lenders and insurers. Lawyers for Mr. Trump have said he did nothing wrong.”

The newspaper also reported that Trump has asked a judge to declare the subpoena invalid.

The news comes less than a month after the Supreme Court, in a major ruling on the limits of presidential power, cleared the way for Mr. Vance’s prosecutors to seek Mr. Trump’s financial records.

The Times also noted that the investigation is a “significantly broader inquiry than the prosecutors have acknowledged in the past.”
