At 6 seconds into this video clip, you’ll see a Donald Trump supporter sucker punch a black protester in the face as he’s being led out by security — and the police then arrest the protester, not the guy who assaulted him.

The violent Trump supporter then told Inside Edition, “Next time, we might have to kill him.”

INSIDE EDITION tracked down the supporter, 78-year-old John McGraw, who was unrepentant.

When asked if he liked the rally, he said: “You bet I liked it. Knocking the hell out of that big mouth.”

And when asked why he punched the protester, he said: “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, cussing me… If he wants it laid out, I laid it out.”

He added: “Yes, he deserved it. 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.”

John McGraw has now been arrested and charged with assault and battery.

A 78-year-old man was arrested on Thursday and charged with assault and battery and disorderly conduct after a video appeared to show him punching a protester at a rally for Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump. The video, which was disseminated widely on the Internet, was taken at a Trump campaign event in Fayetteville, North Carolina, on Wednesday.

Police identified the man who apparently struck the protester as John McGraw, of Linden, North Carolina. His victim was identified by The Washington Post as Rakeem Jones, 26, who told the Post he attended the rally as a “social experiment.” A Cumberland County sheriff’s office public information officer, Sergeant Sean Swain, told Newsweek that McGraw was at the rally to support Trump.
