Seddique Mateen shows WPTV Channel 5 his support for Hillary Clinton and gun control.

Though he had a prime seat at her Monday rally in Kissimmee and made a banner that sums up some of her key positions, Hillary Clinton is disavowing the support of Seddique Mateen, the father of the St. Lucie County-grown jihadist who killed 49 people in Orlando in June.

 

“She disagrees with his views and disavows his support,” Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said in a statement released late Tuesday.

 

Merrill didn’t specify which views Clinton disagrees with, but the day after Omar Mateen‘s murderous rampage at the gay Pulse nightclub, Seddique Mateen posted a Facebook video condemning the act and stating that “God will punish those involved in homosexuality.”
