The man who allegedly set fire to a black church in Greenville, Mississippi,
and spray-painted it with “Vote Trump” is a member of the church.
Police arrested Andrew McClinton on Wednesday in connection with the arson of Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church, which was burned and vandalized Nov. 1, a week before Donald Trump was elected president.
A bishop from Hopewell told the Associated Press that Mr. McClinton is a member of the black church.
The suspect is charged with firstdegree arson of a place of worship.
