A man who claimed to be a White supremacist and Donald Trump supporter attacked an interracial couple. According to reports, Daniel Rowe, 32, saw a Black man and White woman talking in a party district in Olympia, Washington.

At some point, the Black man kissed the White woman and Rowe became enraged. Rowe approached the couple and pulled out a knife. He then slashed the woman and stabbed the man. Rowe attempted to run away, but the man he stabbed chased him and pushed him down. Rowe hit his head and fell unconscious.

When police arrived, Rowe regained consciousness and began yelling. He reportedly yelled that he was a Donald Trump supporter and that he wanted to attack members of Black Lives Matter. Police also noticed that he had tattoos that read, “White Power,” “Skinhead,” and an image of a Confederate flag.

Rowe clearly represents a segment of America that is fueled by hatred, but his support of Trump also sheds light on why this presidential election is important. Since beginning his campaign, Trump has used rhetoric to further the racial divide. Trump’s hateful speeches have inspired racists as he becomes one step closer to the White House. He has become a de facto leader for individuals who seek to harm others simply because of the color of their skin, ethnicity, or religious beliefs. If Trump finds a way inside of the White House as president, the country can only expect things to get worse.

The couple did not sustain life-threatening injuries. Rowe was arrested and booked into the Thurston County Jail and charged with first-degree assault and malicious harassment, which is classified as a hate crime in the state of Washington.

Rowe had recently been released from prison after being convicted of second-degree robbery in 2008.

    Really POOR JOURNALISM…this article is so bias and wrong.

    Black folks Trump is the ONLY CANDIDATE talking about JOBS, and reducing CRIME in our Neighborhoods.

    Hillary Clinton, is not for BLACK FOLKS…she talks good, but that’s where begins and ends.

      The fact that you are trying to blame Donald trump for this bull shows how racist you are. So try to do your job and attempt to be a reporter. I totally agree with you. We’ve been voting for the democratic for 51 years, where has it gotten us. Stop the fear and dare to be different.

      Please take time to read the facts regarding Trump’s racist rhetoric. 1) He wants to ban muslims from entering the country 2) He once retweeted a false statement that suggested blacks kill more whites than whites 3) He has constantly alienated hispanics 4) He picked a fight with a muslim family who loss their son in a war.

      Trump’s ignorance would only lead to destruction.

        So you care about all them other RACES, when them other races don’t care about you/BLACKS.

        1. Arabs don’t CLAIM BLACKS as Muslims

        2. Hispanics have surpassed BLACKS and treat them worse than WHITES in their host countries

        3. Black do kill more whites than whites kill whites. DUMMY.

        4. Hillary Clinton will not say what she will do for BLACK AMERICA, too afraid.

        TRUMP 2016!

    This offender may very well claim support of #DonaldTrump, many people do.. however, Donald J. Trump rejects any type of violent behavior, and does not support or believe in White Supremacy. He firmly believes that all men are created equally, and all men are entitled to the same prosperity, and right to peace.

      However, he receives campaign contributions from a white supremacist.

      Well whenever there is an incident involving an assault on a police officer, conservatives blame bIm. I’d bet the house that you are one of those hypocrites.

    How many nuts could be pointed out that follow any given candidate?

      Nidal Hasan – Ft Hood Shooter: Reg­istered Democrat and Muslim.
      – Aaron Alexis, Navy Yard shooter – black liberal/Obama voter
      – Seung-Hui Cho – Virginia Tech shooter: Wrote hate mail to President Bush and to his staff, registered Democrat.
      – James Holmes – the “Dark Knight”/Colorado shooter: Registered Democrat, staff worker on the Obama campaign, #Occu­py guy,progressive liberal, hated Christians.

      – Andrew J. Stack, flew plane into IRS building in Texas – Leftist Democrat

      But I bet this “journalist” wouldn’t dare mention these extremists as Democrats but quick to point out the “Trump Supporter”.

    BOOO!!! Be a real journalist and stop reporting bias information. Why mention that he is a “Trump Supporter”…as if his heinous crime was orchestrated by Trump. Why not mention that all mass murderers are registered Democrats? (Nidal Hasan, Aaron Alexis (big supporter of Obama), Seung-Hui Cho and Amy Bishop.) When mentioning Hillary please mention that she is responsible for Benghazi, on how Bill Clinton was used to drive blacks out of Harlem and also of audio of the Clintons making racially-insensitive remarks about blacks.
