A clash that drew national attention during the 2016 campaign season ended with a hand-shake and a hug on Wednesday.
Seventy-nine-year-old John McGraw apologized to Rakeem Jones for hitting him at a Trump rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
McGraw hit an unsuspecting Jones as he was being escorted out of the rally by security.

McGraw then looked into a camera and said: "Next time we may have to kill him."
"We're caught up in a political mess today and you and me [sic] gotta heal our country," a choked up McGraw said to Jones on Wednesday.
Jones then reached out, shook McGraw's hand and followed up with a hug.
