WATCH: A Donald Trump Supporter Cold-Cocks a Protestor Being Escorted Out by Police, Police Ignore Assault
Wednesday night, the same day the GOP frontrunner announced Islam "hates" America, aÂ Donald Trump supporter seemingly out of nowhere sucker-punched a protestor who was being escorted out of the rally by several police officers.
"Next time, we might have to kill him,"Â 78-year-old John McGraw, arrested â€“Â not when he allegedly assaulted the protestor, but on Thursday â€“Â only after the victim's video went viral. McGraw made the remarks when he was interviewed byÂ Inside Edition Wednesday night, in the video above.
"Number one, we donâ€™t know if heâ€™s ISIS," McGraw on camera says. "We donâ€™t know who he is, but we know heâ€™s not acting like an American, cussing me... If he wants it laid out, I laid it out."
The protestor,Â 26-year-old Rakeem Jones,Â was caught on camera waving his middle finger to Trump. He explained to MSNBC Thursday afternoon he did it because Trump told him to go home to his mother, and his mother is deceased.Â
"Yes,Â he deserved it," McGraw added.Â "The next time we see him, we might have to kill him. We donâ€™t know who he is. He might be with a terrorist organization."
Inside Edition asked McGraw if he enjoyed the Trump rally.
"You bet I liked it. Knocking the hell out of that big mouth."
McGraw was reportedly chargedÂ with assault and battery, and disorderly conduct.
