The president of Fresno State University says the school will aid in any federal investigation into a professor's tweets calling for President Donald Trump to be hanged and Republicans to be killed, Fox News reports.

The news station quoted the tweets, which it said came from Professor Lars Maischak's Twitter account:

"To save American democracy, Trump must hang. The sooner and the higher, the better."

"Has anyone started soliciting money and design drafts for a monument honoring the Trump assassin, yet?"

"Justice = The execution of two Republicans for each deported immigrant."

"Fresno State understands the deep concerns that have been shared as a result of personal comments made by Professor Lars Maischak, who is a lecturer in the History Department at Fresno State," the school's President Joseph Castro wrote in an open letter to students, faculty and staff.

"In response to these concerns, we have conducted a preliminary review to ensure that it is clear that the statements made by him were as a private citizen, not as a representative of Fresno State.

"Professor Maischak's personal views and commentary, with its inclusion of violent and threatening language, is obviously inconsistent with the core values of our University. While Fresno State is committed to state and federal constitutional rights of free speech, the content of statements by Dr. Maischak warrants further review and consideration."

And he added: "The University will fully cooperate with any investigations conducted by Federal officials."

Fox News noted the Secret Service has not commented on whether it is investigating.

But Maischak has fired back saying it was "far-fetched" to assume his Trump tweet represented an invitation to murder the president, The Washington Free Beacon reported.

"I am appalled that the president of the university is allowing himself to be instrumentalized for a right-wing smear campaign," Maischak said.
