    A 59-year-old South Florida man accused of making Facebook threats against President-elect Donald Trump will remain in jail.

    Kevin Keith Krohn agreed not to seek release during a brief appearance in federal court in Fort Lauderdale on Thursday.

    The Sun Sentinel reports Krohn was arrested last week at Pembroke Pines home after U.S. Secret Service agents said he posted threats against Trump on Facebook.

    Court records show he wrote above a picture of Trump: "He's not my president/He's an enemy of the state." He also posted a picture of a man in camouflage holding a scoped sniper rifle.

    The comments were posted in a thread of comments about Trump staying in Palm Beach during the holidays.

    Krone is represented by Robert Berube, who appeared in court with him.
