Expert: - Threats on Trump particularly brutal
American presidents have always received death threats, but the tone and brutality of the threats that are currently directed towards the country's next president and his family are particularly serious, experts say.

A man has been jailed for attempting to steal a gun and point it at the then Republican presidential candidate, and Twitter hashtags such as #killTrump and #assasinateTrump have emerged.

The next US president, Donald Trump, has already received several serious death threats, and more threats than most other.

"It's quite dramatic statements. It's not just the usual that one is an idiot or unsympathetic. There are invitations to do something illegal, abusive and criminal offensive," said Peter Kurrild-Klitgaard, professor of political science at the University of Copenhagen, to Berlingske.

He also mentions how, in continuation of the brutal hashtags, #rapeMelanie has also occurred, referring to Trump's wife and the next First Lady. All three hashtags are probably illegal, and the Secret Service, according to several US media, is therefore currently investigating who those behind it are.

"I can not assess the risk (of the threats actually being executed.), but it is clear that there has been a brutalization," says Peter Kurrild-Klitgaard.
