A man holding a “Blacks for Trump” sign was back at President Donald Trump’s rally in Ohio Saturday.


Maurice Symonette, who also goes by the names Maurice Woodside and Mikael Israel, appeared to dawn his iconic “TRUMP & Republicans Are Not Racist” shirt which also sported his URL. He initially supported then-presidential candidate because he believed Trump would lower taxes, the Miami New Times reported.

He also did not like Hillary Clinton, conflating her to racist activities. (RELATED: Yes, We Kanye? Trump And The GOP May Have A Real Opening With African Americans)

“One reason is because Hillary’s last name is Rodham, and their family members are Rothchilds, who enslaved 13,000 slaves as collateral,” Symonette said, according to Miama New Times. “She’s also on camera kissing the head of the Ku Klux Klan and saying, ‘That’s my mentor.’ That’s all on my website.”

Symonette used to belong to a radical and violent black supremacist religious group, according to The Washington Post. He was also charged and later acquitted for conspiracy for murders in the 1990s.

The Trump rally was in Lewis Center, Ohio in support of Troy Balderson, who is running for Congress.

Symonette has appeared at other rallies in Phoenix, Miami, and Lakeland, Florida.
