An Illinois woman is facing federal charges after she allegedly threatened to kill former President Donald Trump and his 17-year-old son Barron, writing in an email she would shoot both of them “at any opportunity I get,” according to prosecutors.
Tracy Marie Fiorenza, 41, was charged earlier this month in the Southern District of Florida with a count of transmitting a threat to kill or injure another person, according to a federal complaint.
Fiorenza is accused of sending an email to the headmaster of a school in Palm Beach on May 21, 2023. In that email, she allegedly wrote: “ … I will state that I will shoot Donald Trump Sr. AND Barron Trump straight in the face at any opportunity that I get.”
Days later on June 5, Fiorenza allegedly sent another email to the same person, which stated “... I am going to slam a bullet in Baron Trump’s head with his father IN SELF DEFENSE!”
Agents with the U.S. Secret Service’s Chicago branch contacted Fiorenza later in June to schedule a field interview, which was held at the agency’s downtown office on June 14, according to the complaint.
During the meeting, Fiorenza allegedly admitted that she had written and sent the threatening emails from her home in Plainfield, Illinois.
Fiorenza has reportedly been arrested and had a hearing in Chicago’s federal court building Monday.
According to Fiorenza’s social media, she previously worked for Chicago Public Schools. The district confirmed Monday that was a CPS employee from Sept. 22, 2019 until her termination Aug. 30, 2020.
