The 15-year-old girl said she and an acquaintance were chatting at Brainerd High School in the fall of 2016.

She said she remembers the person asking her what she thought about then-presidential candidate Donald Trump during casual conversation. 


She said her response was that she did not like him.

The teen said the acquaintance asked her if that's all she had to say about him.

Therefore, she said, she joked that someone should behead him. She said they both laughed about that.

According to the 15-year-old girl, at no point while they were talking did the acquaintance say her questions were for the yearbook. 

She said she wishes no harm to President Trump and said she is now getting threats.

This was a conversation with 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS via a recorded phone conversation. Stay with 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS for updates on this part of the story.

5 EYEWITNESS NEWS has reached out multiple times to the school's yearbook adviser for comment. Requests have gone unanswered.
