Such fiction has since been dubbed “Trump Assassination ”.

The Secret Service has blasted the publication for publishing one such story involving their agency, last Friday. The story, written by Zoe Sharp, goes as follows:

Calling the fictional account “outrageous,” a Secret Service spokesperson told Fox News that such stories are an “insult to the men and of this agency”:

The U.S. Secret Service prides itself on being an apolitical agency with a long and distinguished of protecting our nation’s elected officials.”
