A white nationalist group plans to support Donald Trump at the July Republican National Convention in Ohio, according to The Daily Beast.

"We're essentially just going to show up and make sure that the Donald Trump supporters are defended from the leftist thugs," Traditionalist Worker Party spokesman Matt Parrott told McClatchy DC.

The group had been involved in a rally in Sacramento that resulted in a fight between them and counter-protest group By Any Means Necessary. At least 10 people on both sides of the conflict were hurt.

The Traditionalist Worker Party group announced that it won the fight, reports the Daily Beast. "We will not be intimidated," Parrott said, adding that, "We provoked the leftists into showing their true colors."

The Sacramento County GOP announced that they do not support the neo-Nazi group, which they called "nothing but a hate group," in the McClatchy report.

The Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression spokesman Frank Chapman told the Daily Beast that the Traditionalist Workers Party did not change his group's plans to attend the convention. "They are not our problem. Trump is our problem," he said.

Matthew Heimbach leads the Traditionalist Workers Party. He said he believed the attack on his group was premeditated, but denies that his group can be labeled "Nazi."

Heimbach told the Southern Poverty Law Center, "It cannot be defined simply by a 12-year period in Germany during the 20th century," referring to Adolf Hitler's leadership of Germany and the Nazi Party during the 1930s and 1940s.
