Trump supporter, 18, says Marquette University threatened to withdraw its offer through TikTok videos
A young Trump supporter, 18, said Marquette University threatened to withdraw her offer after posting TikTok videos in favor of the President, leading to student death threats.
Samantha Pfefferle claims that the administrators had told her that her place was no longer certain and that she had asked her a series of questions about her morals to decide if she would still accept her at the university in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
This came after she posted a video of herself on TikTok dancing while phrases promising her support for Donald Trump played on the screen.
Pfefferle says she has been threatened with death by other students through the video and that their response is “revolting.”

The high school student uploaded the pro-Trump video titled ‘When the libs find their way to your page’ to her TikTok ‘conservativegirl0’ page.
In the video, she is standing in front of a house with a Trump 2020 banner in the window and a sign on the outside that says ‘Marquette University 2024’.
Pfefferle dances in front of the signs to 6ix9ine’s GOOBA as the phrases ‘When people see me supporting Trump’, ‘Try to hate me’ and ‘And think I will change my mind’ appear on the screen.
She also wears a Marquette sweater and gestures to the text: “He is angry, she is” angry, very sad, haha, doesn’t matter, stay angry. ‘
The video, which received more than 3,100 responses on Wednesday afternoon, caused an angry response, with some Marquette students threatening her life.
“I hope you get shot,” one person wrote in the comments.
“Free speech has no consequences,” said another.

An email also began to circulate on social media calling for the refusal of Pfefferle to leave college, with people urging other students to copy it and send it to Marquette’s administration.
“I was extremely disappointed by the inflammatory comments,” said Pfefferle The College Fix.
“My colleagues’ reaction was disgusting.”
The prospective freshman claims she also faced a backlash from the university, saying that administrators threatened to withdraw her place at the school.
Pfefferle told The College Fix that she was contacted by the college dean of undergraduate admissions Brian Troyer, who told her that she was ‘not a student’ and that her place was still being determined – even though she was already in one place was accepted and made payments for accommodation there.
‘[He] had the heart to tell me I was not a student, “said Pfefferle.
“This means that my classification is still in limbo and is currently being decided by the administration.
“I was hired, I paid for my accommodation, I have my housemates, I even have a complete class schedule. If that doesn’t make me a student, then what does? ‘

Pfefferle also said administrators interviewed her to assess her morale and raised hypothetical questions about Dreamers.
“They also asked me hypothetical questions about Dreamers,” she told College Fix.
“How would I react if a dreamer who lived in the hallway with me came up to me and told me that she wasn’t feeling safe or comfortable with my opinion and that I was on campus. ‘
She added, “They also asked if they thought I could do something to improve my image on campus. They then asked if I was comfortable with the reputation I have built for myself.
“The assistant dean asked if I had any thoughts about the answer I would get from my videos.”
A petition requesting her to keep her place and mentioning her right to freedom of expression reached about 2,400 signatures.
Pfefferle told The College Fix later on Tuesday that the school had confirmed it would not withdraw its offer.
Marquette University did not immediately respond to DailyMail.com’s request to comment on Wednesday, but a spokeswoman confirmed on the right-wing website Empower Wisconsin that the recording team had spoken to Pfefferle about statements on its social media accounts and was not withdrawing the offer.
