Threat­en­ing note aimed at Trump

The Washington Post Sunday - - LOCAL OPINIONS - BY MARTIN WEIL martin.weil@wash­post.com

A mes­sage that ap­peared to threaten Pres­i­dent Trump was re­port­edly found Satur­day morn­ing on a sign­board out­side an ele­men­tary school in Bethesda.

The mes­sage was writ­ten in mov­able metal let­ters on the sign­board out­side Wood Acres Ele­men­tary School, said Andrew John­son, who lives near the school.

He said he went to see it af­ter a friend called it to his at­ten­tion. A pho­to­graph he took shows a mes­sage urg­ing harm to Trump.

John­son said he re­moved the let­ters that spelled out the mes­sage, and put them aside.

The school’s prin­ci­pal was no­ti­fied about the mes­sage, John­son said. He said that he saw the sign later in the day, and noted that the let­ters had been used to spell out a con­ven­tional mes­sage to the school com­mu­nity.

The prin­ci­pal could not be reached Satur­day night. A spokesman for the county po­lice said he had not heard about the sign.

The school is at 5800 Cromwell Drive, in a res­i­den­tial com­mu­nity of sin­gle-fam­ily houses east of Mas­sachusetts Av­enue.
