A supporter of President Donald Trump got more than he bargained for when he publicly debated a twelve-year-old outside a city council meeting in Huntington Park, California.

Video of the heated altercation was posted to Facebook, according to a new report by People Magazine, who reported that “the angry man was wearing a Trump flag and shouted ‘American! American!’ in support of the U.S. president to the people exiting the meeting.”

The video begins with twelve-year-old Joseph Moreno receiving praise for his public comments inside the city council chambers. The Trump supporter then interrupts saying he was, “a little brainwashed little boy.”

“I’m a racist? I’m a racist?” the man shouted at the twelve-year-old. “You have no idea, you’re just a little boy!”

“Actually, I have an idea, because if I hadn’t I wouldn’t have gotten high honors,” Moreno retorted.

As the crowd praised the boy, Moreno continued to debate while receiving fist bumps and pats on the back.

“Hey, it’s not worth fighting a little kid,” Moeno deadpanned.

Veronica Tomas, who posted the video, wrote, “Mark my words.. he is a future leader!”
