Man allegedly threatened to kill Baltimore restaurant owner over anti-Trump poster, police say

BALTIMORE A Baltimore restaurant owner said a man threatened to kill her after he spotted a poster at her restaurant criticizing President Donald Trump.

Rosalyn Vera, owner of Cocina Luchadoras, said the man called her business twice Thursday threatening to harm her if she did not remove the poster. The poster in question includes an image of the president with a message in Spanish that roughly translates to "Donald, you are stupid."

Vera bought the poster from Mezcal Ilegal, a distilled beverage company that donates its merchandise proceeds to various nonprofits. Vera has other similar posters around her business that are critical of Trump's policies or are pro-immigration, she said.

The business owner reported the incident to police, who took information from the caller identification on her phone, according to a police report filed Thursday.

When the man first called, he started to talk to Vera about how her people were invading the United States, she said Friday. Vera says she is a U.S. citizen.

"I'm really scared," she said.
