As the hysterical violence and aggression directed at Trump supporters continues to escalate (at the urging of Congresswoman Maxine Waters and other radical political opponents of the president), a Long Island man was arrested for threatening to kill supporters of President Donald Trump and Republican Rep. Lee Zeldin on Friday.

After making the threats, the man also reportedly nearly hit a campaign staffer for Zeldin with his car. It’s the latest attack on a supporter of President Trump, following an assault in a restaurant near San Antonio where a Texas man was arrested after assaulting a teen and stealing his MAGA hat.

According to the New York PostMartin Astrof, 75, of Nesconset, “became irate” at Zeldin’s Suffolk County campaign headquarters at 11:15 am Friday. Astrof then threatened to kill a campaign worker as well as other Zeldin and Trump supporters.

Astrof was arrested at his home Saturday morning and charged with making terroristic threats.

He threatened to kill a campaign worker, as well as other Zeldin and Trump supporters – then “backed his car up in an aggressive manner nearly striking the worker,” according to authorities.

Astrof fled the scene and was arrested at his home Friday afternoon. He was expected to be arraigned Saturday on a felony charge of making a terroristic threat, and on second-degree reckless endangerment charges.

Zeldin, a dedicated political ally of the president, spoke out against the attack Friday night on twitter.

 Panico, the volunteer who was attacked, is a former deli owner from Smithtown. He was Zeldin’s guest at Trump’s State of the Union address earlier this year, in recognition of his efforts to feed Ground Zero workers in the aftermath of 9/11. The attack on Zeldin’s campaign officecomes after Sen. Rand Paul said he and his family had received death threats from a person who said they would be “chopped up” with an axe.

This is not going to end well.
