Trump tweets Ohio man at protest is an ‘anarchist.’ Now the man’s getting death threats.

Nathan Caraway attended Saturday afternoon’s raucous protest in downtown Columbus, Ohio, he said, not to clash with police but to present a message of peace and calm.

But a video of him at the scene that went viral on social media — and was amplified on President Donald Trump’s Twitter account Monday with the words, “Anarchists, we see you!” — thrust Caraway into an unexpected national spotlight.

Caraway, 32, denied Tuesday what some on social media say is proof that an anarchist paid off young people to sow dissent at the demonstration, and he said he is not personally associated with anarchists or linked to left-wing or anti-fascist groups. Trump and other Republicans have accused members of antifa of traveling across the country to stoke violence at daily protests that have sprung up in response to the death of George Floyd, a black man, in Minneapolis police custody.
