Trump May Pay for Legal Fees for Sucker Punch Attendee

Um, so he doesn’t approve of violence, but he may pay the legal fees [1] of a supporter who sucker punched someone?

Donald Trump said Sunday he may pay legal fees of a supporter who struck a protester at one of his campaign rallies, then threatened to kill the victim.

Trump discussed the incident on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

The GOP front-runner said he does not condone violence, but he is looking into providing assistance to John McGraw, a 78-year-old man who a video shows sucker punching a protestor, 26-year-old Rakeem Jones, as Jones left a Trump rally. Jones was not facing McGraw and did not see the attack coming.
