Michael Symonette, who held a “Blacks for Trump 2020” sign at the President Donald Trump’s Phoenix, Arizona rally on Aug. 22, was reportedly once charged with murder conspiracy and is an ex-cult member.
TMZ reports that Symonette was charged in the 1990s with allegedly conspiring to commit two murders.
According to TMZ, Symonette was charged with the crimes when he was a member of the Yahweh ben Yahweh cult, led by Hulon Mitchell Jr. who was charged in 1990 with conspiracy in multiple killings.
Symonette was found not guilty even after his brother told a jury that Symonette helped beat one man and jammed a stick into another man’s eye.
Symonette reportedly operates a website, Blacksfortrump2020.com, which runs conspiracy headlines such as “ISIS & HILLARY RACE WAR PLOT TO KILL ALL BLACK & WHITE WOMEN OF AMERICA.”
