John Dennis, a Republican Trump supporter is running to unseat Nancy Pelosi this November. He is Chairman of the Republican party in San Francisco.
Dennis made waves recently with his encounter with an Antifa bully who threatened him. Dennis would not be intimidated and stood his ground.
Per Fox News, Dennis, who released the video earlier this month, was taking part in a clean-up event in San Francisco where the confrontation took place.
“Why are you angry, man? You probably disagree with me but I disagree with you,” Dennis said, approaching the bearded man in a yellow shirt.
“No, I actually want you dead,” the man told Dennis.
The man called Dennis a “piece of s—” and “racist.”
The video went viral and was retweeted by President Trump.
Dennis wrote “Thank you @realDonaldTrump for retweeting our video! You have inspired people to stand strong all across our great country. The fight to Make America Great Again will not be easy. Together we can overcome all obstacles!”
