The former butler of US presumptive presidential nominee for the Republican party, Donald Trump, called for the death of US President Barack Obama in a number of offensive posts to social media, The New York Times reported Thursday.

Anthony Senecal, who worked as Trump's butler for almost 30 years, said Obama should be hanged for treason and referred to the president as a "Kenyan fraud."

“With the last breath I draw I will help rid this America of the scum infested in its government," Senecal wrote last May in a Facebook post.

In response, the US Secret Service said Friday that they were “aware of [the] matter and will conduct the appropriate investigation.”
