Ohio Pastor Says He Received Death Threats After Criticizing Trump


A Highland Hills pastor says he has received death threats after his criticism of President Trump reached Congress.  

Reverend Ronald Williams of Mount Zion Fellowship church says the threats started Tuesday after Ohio Democratic Congresswoman Marcia Fudge read his letter on the House floor calling Trump a con man and his followers racist:

Ohio Republican Party chair Jane Timken criticized the congresswoman’s decision to read the letter from the floor. In a statement, Timken said she hoped it was  a lapse in judgement and said “This kind of language serves only to divide not unite — her constituents deserve more."
