"No, I don't want to see anyone assassinated, but he should not be president, he should be impeached", Chapelle-Nadal told KMOV.

Democratic U.S. Sen. "But I am going to continue to talk about the anger and the frustration that led to that".

"I put something up on my personal Facebook page and it has now been deleted", she said. The Democrat later deleted that message and told St. Louis Public Radio that she shouldn't have written it. "People are angry, and they are hurt, and they're trying to figure out: how are they going to receive justice?" "It was a freaking trigger to every person who was teargassed, it was triggering point for all people, all of us!" Wanting Chapelle-Nadal to resign goes even a bit higher in rank, as the governor of Missouri also took to social media saying he believes she should step down. "However, if she does not do so by veto session, I will, in my position as President of the Missouri Senate, immediately seek her expulsion pursuant to Article III, Section 18 of the Missouri Constitution".

The U.S. Secret Service confirmed to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that it is investigating the post as a possible threat. If she will not resign, the Senate can vote to remove her.

She reiterated on Friday that her Facebook post "was totally improper", but said she will not resign.

That sentiment was echoed by Stephen Webber, chairman of the Missouri Democratic Party.

Chappelle-Nadal said she has not been contacted by the Secret Service, but did allege that "a couple of guys are outside my house". "As a senior senator, she should know that the people of Missouri expect better", said Parson. Missouri Congressman William Lacy Clay says Chappelle-Nadal "has repeatedly demeaned her office and she is an embarrassment to the state", and that calling for the president's assassination "is a federal crime". Chappelle-Nadal has said the comment was improper but she won't resign. While she deleted the post soon after, a screenshot of it nevertheless quickly gained traction, earning rebukes from across the political spectrum.

So far, though, Chappelle-Nadal has given no indication that she plans to step down. "She continued, "When he apologizes for all of the statements he's said on behalf of white supremacists and the KKK and neo-Nazis; when he apologizes, I'll apologize".
