Donald Trump to Pay Legal Fees for Man Who Punched Black Protester


trump-mcgraw-550x172Presidential frontrunner Donald Trump continues his divisive and dangerous campaign rhetoric.

On Sunday’s NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Trump reiterated his promise to pay the legal fees of a man who punched a black protester in the face at a rally in N.C.

Trump was speaking at a rally in Fayetteville, N.C. when 78-year-old John McGraw is clearly seen or caught on camera punching protester Rakeem Jones who was being escorted out of the Crown Coliseum, in the face.

McGraw was later charged with assault and battery after video of the incident surfaced on the news and online.

Chuck Todd asked Trump about an earlier statement in which the Republican presidential candidate promised to pay the legal fees of anyone who punched out protesters at an earlier rally.

After stating he does not condone violence, Trump said he wanted to see more about the incident involving McGraw.

“I want to see,” Trump said. “The man got carried away, he was 78 years old, he obviously loves his country, and maybe he doesn’t like seeing what’s happening to the country.”

Trump said he didn’t rule out paying McGraw’s legal fees.

Well, I’m going to look at it,” he told Todd. “I’ve actually instructed my people to look into it, yes.”

  3. Dear African American people who are voting for Trump:
    Do y’all see this shit right here? Can you not see how he feels about you and your rights as people? Or do y’all not care about that? I guess y’all think like him that the country should go back to a time when it was great. That was right around the time they hung us from trees. Now, when they start stringing your brothers, husbands, sons and what not from the backs of trucks, please don’t act upset. This is clearly what y’all wanted.

    2. YES I’ve seen it and I cringe when I see it, like dude, he is robbing your child’s grave just to make immigrants pay. Why would you allow your child, dead child at that to be used in a race war, black vs brown? SHM.

  4. Trump is a great businessman. He helped Jennifer Hudson and her family when she lost some member of her family. There is a whole list of black people that Trump support. I personally don’t think he is ready to be president but he is not racist.

    1. I think Trump is more opportunist than racist, but I definitely think he is both. Lots of folks have posted receipts of his racist actions on this blog. Trump and Trump Sr. have a history of it. But his followers don’t care because most of them do too.

    2. Trump is a businessman and a bigger narcissist than Kim Kardashian. Any publicity is good publicity for him, which is where I believe he got set up and now passes for a racist man.
