GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump said he would look into paying the legal fees of a supporter charged with assaulting a protester at a rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina, last week.
When NBC host Chuck Todd asked Trump if he was considering paying the fee supporter John McGraw, Trump said he wanted to know more about the facts surrounding the incident.
“I will say this, I do want to see what that young man was doing,” Trump said. “Because he was very taunting, he was very loud, very disruptive. And from what I understand, a certain finger was up in the air.
“And that is a terrible thing to do in front of somebody who, frankly, wants to see American made great again,” he added. “And so, we’ll see. I’m going to take a look at it. But I want to see what that man was doing,” he continued.
Trump said he does not condone violence, which unfortunately is becoming a common occurrence at his rallies.
“The man got carried away. He is 78 years old. He obviously loves his country, and maybe he doesn’t like seeing what’s happening to the country. I want to see the full tape,” the Republican candidate continued.
McGraw punched Rakeem Jones, 26, as part of the security team led Jones out of the facility.
Jones was eventually taken down by security.

McGraw was charged with disorderly conduct.
The fact that Trump’s even considering paying for McGraw’s legal fees must have liberals and their ilk horrified. It will be shocking they didn’t respond with their typical left-wing, racist remarks.
