A man who who punched a protester at a Donald Trump rally Wednesday said afterward that he enjoyed "knocking the hell out of that big mouth" and next time he "might have to kill him."
John McGraw, 78, has been charged with assault for his actions captured in a video inside the Fayetteville, North Carolina, Trump campaign event.
The video shows McGraw sucker punching Rakeem Jones as Cumberland County Sheriff's deputies led the black man out of the Trump rally.
McGraw is free on $2,500 bond and has an April 6 court date.
The Wall Street Journal also reports the deputies are under investigation for possibly mishandling Jones, who was thrown to the ground after he was punched by McGraw.
This kind of behavior is repugnant. We set the tone for our campaigns--we should encourage respect, not violence. https://t.co/reqTlYTRHv-- Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) March 10, 2016
