Seddique Mir Mateen, the father of the Muslim terrorist, Omar Mateen, who killed 49 people and wounded dozens of others at an Orlando nightclub earlier this summer, attended Hillary Clinton‘s campaign rally in Kissimmee, Florida, Monday. He’s seen in video sitting in the crowd behind Clinton on stage.
According to ABC NEWS, when the rally was over Seddique Mateen told a local news outlet that he supports Clinton. “Hillary Clinton is good for United States versus Donald Trump, who has no solutions,” he said.
The Clinton campaign said today in a statement: “The rally was a 3,000-person, open-door event for the public. This individual wasn’t invited as a guest and the campaign was unaware of his attendance until after the event.”
The event was held not far from the site of the mass shooting.
