John McGraw, the 78-year-old Donald Trump supporter caught attacking a protester, defended his actions in an interview posted by Inside Edition on Thursday.
“He deserved it,” McGraw said of the protester, Rakeem Jones. “The next time we see him, we might have to kill him. We don’t know who he is. He might be with a terrorist organization.”
McGraw was arrested and charged with assault and battery and disorderly conduct for punching Jones during a Trump event in Fayetteville, North Carolina on Wednesday.
But he showed no remorse for his actions in the interview, saying, “You bet I liked it. Knocking the hell out of that big mouth.”
The suspect justified the attack by saying, “Number one, we don’t know if he’s ISIS. We don’t know who he is, but we know he’s not acting like an American.”
