A Louisiana man arrested last week and accused of firing off threatening Facebook posts about President Trump was denied bond Tuesday.

Friedrich Ishola, 31, was arrested Nov. 6 and faces a federal charge of making a threat against the president, according to ABC affiliate KTBS.

Ishola told U.S. Magistrate District Judge Mark Hornsby he has health problems and requires medication, according to the TV station.

The judge declined to set bond because of a parole hold on pending state charges, KTBS reported.

His case is set to be reviewed by a grand jury, according to the Shreveport Times.
