Seddique Mateen, the father of the Orlando nightclub shooter, attended a Hillary Clinton rally in Kissimmee, Florida, placing himself prominently behind the presidential candidate as she spoke to supporters, reports Breitbart.
Mateen was visible in the backdrop of Clinton’s speech as she paid tribute to the police officers and victims of the shooting.
A WPTV reporter recognized Mateen and interviewed him after the event.
“It’s a Democratic party so everybody can enjoy,” he said, when asked why he decided to attend the rally. “Why should they be surprised, I love the United States.”
