A Donald Trump rally attendee who appears to be the same man charged with assault for allegedly punching a black protester told Inside Edition after the Wednesday event that next time, he “might have to kill” the protester.

“You bet I liked it,” a man Inside Edition identified as John McGraw, 78, told the tabloid TV show when asked about the incident. “Knocking the hell out of that big mouth.”

In a viral video, McGraw appeared to sucker-punch protester Rakeem Jones as he was being escorted out of the room by authorities.

When asked by Inside Edition why he did it, McGraw said, “We don’t know who he is, but we know he’s not acting like an American. 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.”
