Proud Boys Chairman Enrique Tarrio, who is of Afro-Cuban ethnicity, said he was excited about being mentioned by Trump at the debate, but he didn’t take the reference as an endorsement, because “the question was in reference to white supremacy, which we are not.”
Although I am excited about our mention on the debate stage…
I am not taking this as a direct endorsement from the President. He did an excellent job and was asked a VERY pointed question. The question was in reference to WHITE SUPREMACY…which we are not.

When the group held a memorial service a week later in nearby Vancouver, Washington, one of its members was purposely run over in a parking lot and injured, allegedly by a truck driven by an ‘Antifa’ member.
