The shock and anger over Donald Trump’s ascension to the White House has triggered a flood of calls on Twitter and other social media outlets for the president-elect to be assassinated — and authorities will investigate all threats deemed to be credible, The Post has learned.

Trump met Thursday with President Obama in the Oval Office, with the Republican businessman calling the hour-plus session a “great honor.” Obama said they had an “excellent” and “wide-ranging” conversation, while urging all people to “now come together.”

But that message of inclusion was apparently lost in social media circles, particularly Twitter, where a simple search can reveal dozens and dozens of calls to gun down the next leader of the free world. Some posts called for both Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence to be assassinated, and there’s even an #AssassinateTrump hashtag.

“Trump chose the literal worst case scenario as VP so nobody would try to impeach or assassinate him,” one user posted on Twitter.

    Soros and everyone of the idiots that made threats against Trump should be thrown in jail. They will have to wait until Trump’s attorney general is put in office because oBOZO’s Justice Department is going to do the same thing they have Ldone for the last eight years NOTHING AT ALL !!!!! Everyone knew what LOWretta Lynch was up to and now sorry SOB oBOZO can issue the BLANKET PARDON’s for his ENTIRE ADMINISTRATION because it has been CORRUPT From top to bottom, that means hands off Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, FBI Director Comey and every other LYING SOB’s in his UNjustice department that has covered up and derailed every investigation against Billyboy and kilLIARy Clinton and their entire staff and all of their subordinates. It like all of the people above will be given the LARGEST LIST OF PARDON’s of any past president in HISTORY and it will also take in everyone that took part in FOREIGN DONATIONS and covered them up for oBOZO and kilLIARy, no one knows how many people that will include…
