The United States has been beset by a spate of fake news in the past month, and Peter Porto is one of the few Americans who has taken it seriously enough to stand up and defend it.
The New York Times reported that Peter Portes brother, Christopher, recently visited a local gun shop, and purchased a gun from a man who was then arrested and charged with violating a New York state law prohibiting sales of firearms to felons.
Christopher Portes told the Times that he did so because he wanted to protect his family.
Peter Portos brother is a friend of Peter Portales, Peter said, and that was why he decided to make a trip to the gun shop to buy a gun.
Peter Portes and his family were then harassed and assaulted by a group of people who threatened to attack them, according to the Times.
Peter said the group threatened to kill his family and himself, but that he then left to escape the group and avoid violence.
Peter said he was able to get away because he had his cell phone with him.
He said he left his phone in the car to help his brother.
Peter and his brother did not immediately respond to requests for comment from Breitbart News.
Portes has been one of Trump’s most vocal critics during the campaign, and he took a jab at Trump last week during a speech at the Republican National Convention.
Porte was not the only Trump surrogate who took aim at Trump during the speech.
During his acceptance speech, Trump attacked former Florida Gov.
Jeb Bush, calling him “a very low life who has a big heart” and a “liar.”
