Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio stated on Saturday that he had actually been welcomed to the White Home, seemingly while he remained in Washington, D.C. to participate in a series of rallies objecting the outcomes of the 2020 election.
His posts, which were made on the Trumpian social networks website Parler, triggered alarm bells over the possibility that a leading figure with a reactionary, neo-fascist motion had actually been given an audience with leading federal government authorities.
