The strange story behind the ‘Blacks for Trump’ guy at Phoenix rally 

He’s been seen several times at Donald Trump events, usually behind the president. 

You can’t miss his “BLACKS FOR TRUMP” sign and his T-shirt that has his website — Gods2.com — advertised on it.

But who is Michael the Black Man (that’s just one of a several names he’s known as)?

According to the Washington Post, he’s a “radical fringe activist from Miami (who) once belonged to a violent black supremacist religious cult, and he runs a handful of amateur, unintelligible conspiracy websites.”

His brother says Michael quit the cult after their mother died. He also says Michael helped beat a man who was then taken to the Florida Everglades and beheaded.
