Chappelle-Nadal, who joined the state Senate in 2010, told the AP that while she should not have posted the comment, she was expressing her right to free speech.
In a statement, the Secret Service said that they investigate all threats to the president "whether they be direct, implied, or comments in passing". And, when replying to one of the post's many comments, she said, "I hope Trump is assassinated!"
Chappelle-Nadal later said, "I didn't mean what I put up. If I resigned black people wouldn't have a voice at all", she said.
U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill called the comments "outrageous" and called on Chappelle-Nadal to resign. She also is refusing calls to resign from her fellow Democrats, including U.S. Sen.
Later in the day Thursday, the Secret Service confirmed with News 4 they are investigating. Those calling for her resignation include Democratic leaders in the Legislature, the chairman of the Missouri Democratic Party and a Missouri congressman.
Chappelle-Nadal's Facebook comment came in the wake of the violence last weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Asked by KMOX if she would apologize for the assassination post, she said she would apologize when Trump apologized. He said talk of "assassination" should be the end of her time in the Senate.
