A group of teenage boys, who are Donald Trump supporters and proudly displayed their red Make America Great Again or MAGA hats, were filmed taunting and insulting Nathan Phillips.

 Mr. Phillips, who is a Native American elder and Vietnam War veteran, was attending the Indigenous Peoples March in Washington D.C. when the boys showed up and started harassing him.

Videos showed Phillips playing the drum as the teens stared him down and chanted, “Build that wall!”

Phillips cried as he spoke about the incident by saying: “It was getting ugly, and I was thinking: ‘I’ve got to find myself an exit out of this situation and finish my song at the Lincoln Memorial. I started going that way, and that guy in the hat stood in my way, and we were at an impasse. He just blocked my way and wouldn’t allow me to retreat.”

The identities of the boys have not been revealed, but it has been confirmed they all attend the Covington Catholic High School in northern Kentucky.  

A spokesperson for the Indigenous Peoples March said their "actions amounted to assault."

Stormy Daniels, the porn star who had an affair with Trump, decided the slam the young boys featured in the controversial video in a tweet that read: “I’m suddenly in favor of building a wall…around Covington Catholic High in KY. And let’s electrify it to keep those disgusting punks from getting loose and creating more vileness in society.”

The Diocese of Covington and Covington Catholic High School apologized in the following statement to war hero for the boys' conduct.

The school officials also explained that they do not support the teens' actions and they have opened an investigation into the matter.

Their statement read: "The matter is being investigated, and we will take appropriate action, up to and including expulsion. We know this incident also has tainted the entire witness of the March for Life and express our most sincere apologies to all those who attended the March and all those who support the pro-life movement."

Should the president reach out to some of his supporters?
