Twenty-year-old McMechen resident Ryan Kirker could face as many as five years in prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted.
His arraignment is set for Tuesday morning before U.S. Magistrate James Seibert in Wheeling.
U.S. Attorney William Ihlenfeld says Kirker threatened the president in an April letter that was sent to the White House and that closed with the phrase, "KKK forever." The case was investigated by the U.S. Secret Service.
Kirker remained at the Northern Regional Jail on Wednesday.
His attorney didn't immediately comment on the indictment.
