    Has Trump set himself up to be the most assassinatable president in US history?

    Of all the previous US presidents a total of six have been shot while in office, four of them fatally. This excludes the numerous failed assassination attempts where no injuries were sustained. That's over a 10% chance of being killed or injured by gunshot while in office. Given the number of people and the broad demographic that Trump has upset is he an inevitable assassination attempt waiting to happen and has he significantly raised those odds?

      This will test how good his Secret Service (SS) detail is going to be.

      I hope not in any case... otherwise the stock markets will crumble.

      No.

      Any would be assassin 'homegrown' redneck nuts probably voted for him in the first place.

      Any would be assassin 'religious extremist' nuts would welcome him as president as he'll be the most amazing recruitment tool for their rank and help drive the myth of war.

      He is safe and will get on with Putin like a house on fire because they are the same type of man; same rotten model.

      It wouldn't matter that much if he got assassinated. The problem isn't Donald Trump. The problem is the 60,000,000 people who voted for him. They would have voted for Mrs Bloggs provided she spoke the utter shit they wanted to hear.

      The presidents car is bullet proof, and security is far better today than when JFK was travelling in an open top car.
      Anyway, that golden wig he wears is something I may try, so he is not all bad.

      Remember Reagan being shot, and obviously there was JFK, the others must have been a while back ?

      Catch 22 for the wet ignorant left. All the nasty people elected him so they are not going to hose him down with bullets.
