A Florida man is behind bars for threatening President Donald Trump on Facebook Live. Chauncy Lump, 26, wore a towel on his head and a show curtain over his body in the Facebook Live video.

He smeared white cream on his face and threatened Trump’s life after Iranian general Qassem Soleimani was blown apart in a drone missile strike in Iraq on Jan. 3.

"He killed my leader, and I have to kill him. I am ready for Donald. I am ready," Lump said, according to the complaint.

"Do Not play with me, I have AK-47, I have it here, do not play with me, okay," he said before threatening to travel to West Palm Beach, Florida, where Trump was staying on Friday night.

When Secret Service agents showed up at his door the next day, Lump told them the threats were intended as "a joke." But federal agents weren't laughing as they took him into custody.

Lump was charged with knowingly and willfully making threats to kill and inflict bodily harm upon the president of the United States, a federal crime.

The Secret Service was tipped off by a Facebook employee who spotted the video shortly after it went live on a page called "BlackMan Vs America."

Lump legally owns a semi-automatic pistol. He told agents he had a bachelor's degree in homeland security from Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach, but authorities ran a background check and learned he only completed one semester.

Lump told authorities the video was a mistake. "I shouldn't have did it in the first place," he said, according to the complaint.

Secret Service agents have beefed up security and added four checkpoints at Mar-a-Lago to examine vehicles for explosives amid threats from Iran.

Security is even tougher at Mar-a-Lago after Iran placed an $80 million bounty on Trump's head as revenge for the death of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani, who was killed in a drone strike last week.

According to London's Daily Mail, an Iranian presidential adviser posted a list of Trump’s properties around the world as potential targets.

Among those properties is Trump's expansive Mar-a-Lago estate. Guests must pass through as many as four Secret Service checkpoints to enter Mar-a-Lago.

The extra protections are in addition to the security measures by the U.S. Air Force, which enforces a no-fly zone over Mar-a-Lago whenever Trump is in town.

The U.S. Coast Guard also ramped up patrols in the waters around Mar-a-Lago and Palm Beach police have shut down roads leading to the estate.

Trucks and other vehicles are searched and the U.S. Army maintains strict patrols on the grounds of the posh estate.
