Clyde McLemore and Gary Lloyd are two ordinary citizens of America. Clyde is Black while Gary is a white person.

While Trump supporters were waiting for his arrival, Clyde was standing there with his Black Lives Matter placard and t-shirt. However, Gary Lloyd did like this and said, β€œIf you don’t like it, why don’t you go back to Africa and see how nice it is there?” This was captured in a video that went viral on Facebook and Instagram.

However, on the plus side, Gary reflected on what he said and accepted his mistake. He said in a telephonic interview to Newsweek, β€œI was very upset when he was tearing up our country. So that’s why I said what I did… I got angry and I lost my temper, but I never should have said it.”
