PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A President Donald Trump supporter hugs a protester he sucker-punched at a campaign rally in North Carolina last March.
John McGraw and Rakeem Jones had lunch together this week.
Prosecutors charged McGraw with assault.
A judge sentenced him to probation.
McGraw and Jones discussed what happened and how to move forward.
They say the racial undertones surrounding the incident remain.
“Like I said, getting to know the other side, period. Just figure out what’s going on with the other side,” Jones said.
“I wish somehow Jones and I could go to white churches and black churches and talk to them,” said McGraw.
McGraw says he and Jones were both caught up in a “political mess.”
